Seattle Protection Orders Attorney
Fight a Restraining Order in King County
While it may just be a piece of paper with a court order telling you to stay away, make no mistake: A protection order is serious business. A violation of a restraining order or an allegation that you violated a restraining order is a crime. A restraining order can also interrupt your career, your life and your freedom to go to places that are an important part of your life. Violating a court order is a criminal offense and you will face harsh consequences if you are not careful. At the offices of Burke Brown Attorneys, our Seattle protection orders lawyers can help you take action to have the protection order against you removed, so you can move forward with your life.

Domestic violence protection orders are not part of the criminal court system, but they do involve very important legal proceedings and the potential for serious consequences. You want to make sure you prepare for these proceedings so you can protect your rights and make sure you avoid an order if at all possible because a violation will result in criminal charges.
A protection order can be placed against you for a wide range of actions. Spouses, domestic partners and family members can obtain a protection order for anything from harassment to assault. Luckily, there are things you can do to fight the order and protect your rights.
With more than 35 years of combined domestic violence defense experience, attorneys Liza Burke and Dana Brown have helped clients across Washington fight no contact orders placed against them for a wide range of reasons such as:
- She successfully had a protection order petition dismissed for a father accused of rape by demonstrating to the court the victim's motivation to lie.
- A local domestic violence victim advocate was charged with assault by her boyfriend, but attorney Burke demonstrated that her client was the true victim and the boyfriend walked out of court with a restraining order against him.
- A young man was accused of assault by his petite girlfriend and she even had witnesses on her side. We collected evidence to prove to the judge that the girl was the true aggressor and our client ended up getting the order reversed.
These are just a few of the ways our attorneys have protected the rights of people who have had no contact orders placed against them.
