When conflict arises in relationships, parties sometimes need time apart. When circumstances
are appropriate, the court system may even be utilized to keep parties separated, but court-
ordered protective orders are difficult to obtain and such proceedings can have collateral
consequences for restrained parties including, but not limited to, mandatory firearms
restrictions. Collins Rowan, LLP represents clients seeking and defending against protective
orders including restraining orders, stalking protective orders, elder abuse protective orders,
and sexual abuse prevention orders.
