Commonly known as restraining orders, protection orders can prevent someone from communication, actions or even threatening certain actions against another. Under Colorado law, there are different types of protection orders. There are also differing procedures that must be strictly followed in order to ensure a protection order has legal significance and goes into effect.
At Maher & Maher Law, we have extensive experience with civil and criminal protection orders. We know and can work on both sides of protection orders. Whether you are seeking on for yourself or if you have been served with a protection order that you want to contest, we can help.
If a protection order is contested and the magistrate holds a hearing, you do not want to go it alone. The hearing will be subject to the Colorado Rules of Evidence and you will be held to the rules whether you know and understand them or not. You will be given the opportunity to testify but remember that you will be under oath so there is a very real possibility that you could say something that may incriminate you without you even realizing it. Having an experienced attorney to advise you about the proper steps and procedure, to represent you throughout the hearing and to explain the significance of many of the legal rulings the magistrate will make is so important.
We have attorneys who work daily with all sorts of Colorado protective orders. We have an investigatory team that can help get to the truth and present to the magistrate in the best possible light for you and your situation. We have a male and female attorney who can do direct and cross examination of witnesses. We have the resources and the knowledge you need to get the right result for you!
