DOMESTIC VIOLENCE & ORDERS OF PROTECTION

The Illinois Domestic Violence Act (Act) seeks to protect family members from physical abuse and harassment. In cases where domestic violence is proven, a court will issue an Order of Protection prohibiting an abuser from committing physical abuse, harassment, interference with personal liberty, using physical force against or the confinement of another, or willfully denying a disabled or elderly person medication, medical services, shelter, or other needs. Domestic violence is a very serious charge. As a skilled trial lawyer familiar with the technicalities of the Act, I vigorously prosecute or defend charges of domestic violence in order to obtain a favorable result that protects my client.
