Phoenix Attorney Handling Charges Related To Violating An Order Of Protection

Man being arrested

Orders of protection or restraining orders are mandates from the Court meant to protect another from harm. Our society takes violation of such orders seriously and prosecutors will aggressively pursue criminal charges. Also, cases involving such a violation are typically accompanied by other charges as well. One  accused of  violating a protective order will be charged with “interfering with judicial proceeding”s and is likely facing substantial penalties. Bretton Barber is a Phoenix area criminal defense attorney giving such matters the attention they deserve. Call our lawyer today to schedule an initial consultation.

Arizona lawyer defending against allegations of violating a protective order

Obeying an order of protection is not optional. Violating such an order can result in a class one misdemeanor. Such a charge is usually accompanied by other allegations such as harassment, aggravated harassment, stalking, or domestic violence. These additional charges can mean that one may very well be facing a felony. In addition to having a criminal record, you may also be labeled as a violent offender. Hiring an attorney who is familiar with the process, and who will protect your rights, is key to your future.

Bretton aggressively protects the rights of Arizona residents who have been accused of a crime. Once retained Bretten will immediately gather all of the evidence being used against you. In a case involving protection order violations, this will include communication records as well as records showing your whereabouts at a given time (such as employment records, statements from alibi witnesses, etc.). Unfortunately, these types of charges are often fabricated or exaggerated. People often falsify such charges because they are attempting to gain an advantage in divorce or child custody proceedings. If you are finding yourself in such a situation then our lawyer will defend you through the trial process. We are ready to assist you. In addition to Phoenix we represent defendants in other Maricopa County cities such as Mesa, Glendale, Scottsdale, Chandler, and Gilbert. We also assist Pima County residents in Tucson.

Criminal defense attorney providing regular communication to Phoenix residents

One of the most common complaints against attorneys is that they do not maintain regular communication with their clients. Bretton founded the Barber Law Group on the belief that everyone is entitled to respect and he stays in regular communication with those he represents. He regularly provides his personal cell phone number and communicates with people, regarding their case, outside of conventional business hours. He will keep you informed throughout the process and will make himself available to answer your questions. You have enough to worry about at a time like this and your lawyer’s ability to remain in contact should not be an additional concern. Contact us today.
