Chattanooga Domestic Violence Lawyer
Orders of Protection are a tool to protect people from dangerous situations when that risk of danger is coming from someone they have or had some relationship with. If you have been harmed or made to fear that you would be harmed or someone has had offensive contact with you and you have or had a relationship with that person an Order of Protection, sometimes referred to as a restraining order, may be the right tool to protect you from that person.
At the Law Office of Angela C. Larkins, Attorney at Law, our Chattanooga Orders of Protection attorney can help you determine if a restraining order is the best way to help you stay safe.
