Guidance In Restraining Order Violation Charges
In Massachusetts, a restraining order is known as an abuse prevention order, a protective order or a “209A.” When you are accused of violating the terms of a restraining order, you risk penalties of up to two and one-half years in jail and a $5,000 fine.

An Experienced Massachusetts Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer
Domestic violence charges often result in restraining orders and protective orders against the alleged abuser. I know that there are two sides to every story and that underlying narratives and histories have an impact on which story is told and believed.
I understand the situations that can arise that lead to a domestic dispute between boyfriend and girlfriend, husband and wife or domestic partners. These relationships are fraught with emotions. A restraining order brings with it many new challenges and complications.

You can be charged and arrested for restraining order violation for the following:
