Essex County Restraining Order Lawyers
Our Essex County Restraining Order Lawyers stand ready to fight for you. A restraining order hearing can be very complex because it is a summary proceeding. That is, unlike just about any other Essex County court case, there is no discovery; no prep time. You show up for trial at the first hearing without knowing what the other side will say or do. In addition, the law on the issue is complex as it is not as simple as whether or not an act of domestic violence occurred. Our team of tough, smart Newark restraining order lawyers know the law and know how to protect you.
