Eugene Restraining Order Attorney
While restraining orders were created to protect individuals and families in danger of violence, the use of orders have often been abused by people to gain tactical advantages in legal disputes involving family, business and other matters.
We recognize the prevalent abuse of civil restraining orders in Oregon at Duvall Law Office, P.C., and our zealous Eugene restraining order lawyer is prepared to defend you and help you understand how a restraining order placed on you will affect your life and restrict your freedom.
Springfield Family Abuse Defense Lawyer Helping You Enforce Your Rights
For more than 25 years, Hugh Duvall has aggressively represented clients throughout Lane County facing accusations of stalking, menacing, harassment or coercion and other abusive or violent offenses that have resulted in restraining orders such as:
- Family Abuse Prevention Act (FAPA) restraining order (one-year duration, but can be renewed): These types of orders are commonly filed in circumstances where a domestic partner/spouse accuses the other domestic partner/spouse of abuse (civil matters, not criminal matters). There is no jury trial. Instead, a judge decides if the petitioner has proven the required elements to obtain an order.
- Elder abuse restraining order (one-year duration)
- Stalking protective order (unlimited duration)
We believe in pursuing our client’s goals in every case that we handle, which is why this attorney is committed to building a resilient case on your behalf.
Depending on your case, Hugh Duvall will work closely with you to learn about your relationship with the individual who has placed a restraining order against you. Because these types of cases are often based on the testimony of one person, facts can be misconstrued and false allegations are common. Our law office will work to find the best legal solution for your case, taking your unique circumstances into careful consideration.
Have you been served with a restraining order? You only have a limited amount of time to request a hearing to defend yourself against it, or to modify the terms in the order. Contact our law firm today for reliable legal representation.
