Orders of Protection and Domestic Abuse Defense
An order for protection can make many of your normal day-to-day activities a crime.
If an order for protection is filed against you, you could be prevented from using your car, seeing your children or even going home. If you violate the terms of the order, you may face criminal consequences.

I am attorney Murad Mohammad and I defend people in cases involving domestic abuse and protection orders. With 10 years of experience, I know what it takes to get results. I can give you the tenacious, intelligent defense you need.
Stiff Penalties for Violating Protection Orders
A restraining order can seem like an arbitrary and unfair attack on your rights. Obeying the terms of a protection order can be incredibly burdensome. Regardless, the court takes violations of protection orders seriously. If you are accused of violating the terms of the restraining order, you are facing harsh penalties.
Violation of a protection order is punishable by up to 90 days in jail and hefty fines, even if you have no history of domestic violence. If you have been convicted of domestic abuse one or more times, the penalties go up dramatically. You could be facing a felony conviction punishable by years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.
In short, violating a protection order can turn your life upside-down.
