Domestic Violence

Dismissal – Domestic Violence Protection Order Victim Representation

A local domestic violence victim’s advocate broke up with her partner. The spurned partner obtained a temporary domestic violence protection order against the victim’s advocate alleging that she assaulted him. Ms. Burke represented the victim’s advocate in fighting his request and successfully argued that he was the abuser and she was the victim. Ms. Burke successfully argued that the parties should be realigned. As a result, HE, the original petitioner, walked out as the respondent restrained by a domestic violence protection order.
