Representative Matters

Pro Bono
We represented an underage domestic violence victim against her abusive ex-boyfriend by proving three predicate acts of violence—assault, harassment, and criminal mischief—and convinced the court that our client lived with an ongoing fear of imminent threat, thereby proving the second element required for issuance of a Final Restraining Order (“FRO”). After issuance of the FRO, we alerted the court of an outstanding warrant out for the defendant’s arrest and had him restrained in court, much to the satisfaction of our client and her mother.
