Abuse Prevention Order
Client was a young woman who was accused of harassing her ex-boyfriend and threatening him. As a result, he obtained a restraining order without her knowledge, which is allowed under the law. The law also allows for a 10-day hearing to dispute the merits of the case. Attorney Barabino opposed the order and presented evidence with client and supporting witnesses. After the hearing, the judge denied the boyfriend's request for a restraining order and order was vacated in client's favor.
RESULT: 10-Day Issue of Restraining Order DISMISSED.
