I violated a restraining order and was charged with a misdemeanor. I was very concerned about having to deal with the negative impact of a conviction. This could have meant hefty court fines, jail time, or being put on probation. Thankfully, I hired San Diego Restraining Order Attorney and am so grateful I did.
This law firm breathes professionalism. They don’t sugar coat details or tell you what you want to hear. They’re very direct, very responsive, and extremely respectful. My attorney was able to get a plea deal, and I only ended up paying a small fine. Highly recommended!
Michael and Thomas are the best attorneys I have used. I was in a bitter child custody battle, and my ex-wife surprised me with a restraining order full of false and life-changing accusations. I was at a low point and didn’t know how to handle the situation. Both of them were with me from the first day and helped relieve the stress of dealing with an awful situation. Consistantly kept me up to date and always answered my calls and text messages in a timely manner. They were both very informative and knew what to do for every scenario. Their experience put me at ease, and at the end of the day, the restraining order was removed. Now I can visit my daughter and make great memories with her. Thank you both so very much.
