Domestic Abuse, Protective Orders and Restraining Orders
When domestic abuse or harassment occurs or is alleged, legal advice may be needed. At the Law Offices of Friske & Hilliard, our attorneys are experienced in matters involving protective orders and restraining orders.
In California, protective orders are used by police to address conflicts in the short term, while restraining orders are issued by a court and offer longer lasting legal protection. In the context of family law, these orders are issued against spouses, partners, boyfriends and girlfriends, relatives or other members of the same household.

Your safety is important, and so are your legal rights. If you or a loved one has experienced domestic violence, threats or harassment — or if you have been accused of wrongdoing — our Orange County lawyers can advise and represent you. We can obtain or defend restraining or protective orders related to:
- Verbal abuse or intimidation
- Physical violence or sexual violence against you or your family
- Threats of violence or aggression
- Using Facebook, Twitter or other social media to harass or abuse someone
- Phone calls, text messages, emails and other forms of problematic communication
Since restraining orders and protective orders can be used inappropriately in family law cases, our firm can provide guidance if you are on the receiving end of an order. We can also provide enforcement of orders or represent you in hearings related to contempt of a court order, as needed.Contact Our Firm's Attorneys for Matters Concerning Restraining and Protective Orders
