St. Louis Criminal Defense Lawyer

Violating an Order of Protection

It is a serious offense to violate an order of protection, regardless of whether you feel the order is valid or not. Attorney Brent Labovitz has dedicated his practice of law to criminal defense so that he can give all of his attention to defending clients charged with such crimes. He was lead counsel for hundreds of successful criminal defense cases while working for the Missouri Public Defender's Office, ranging from misdemeanors to felonies, and is prepared to go to work for you. If you have an order of protection entered against you in the State of Missouri, violation of that order can result in criminal charges. Whether it is an ex parte or a full order of protection, most orders prevent you from having any contact or communication at all with the individual who filed for protection. If you find yourself facing criminal charges for violating an order of protection, it is very important that you consult with a hard-hitting St. Louis criminal defense attorney without delay.

Stalking, Abuse and Other Violations of Protective Orders

A violation of the terms and conditions of the protection order can include things such as abuse, stalking, child custody issues, any type of prohibited communication with, or entrance upon the premises of the person who filed the order of protection.

A charge for violation of an order of protection is a misdemeanor, unless you have pled guilty to or been found guilty of violating an order of protection in the past, in which case the charge can be a felony. If you are facing criminal charges for allegedly violating an order of protection you need to act immediately to find out what your legal options are. Failure to do so could lead to having to pay large fines and a possible jail term.

If you or a loved one is facing charges for violating an order of protection, contact a St. Louis criminal defense lawyer for immediate assistance.

I would highly recommend Brent When feeling uncomfortable with the public defender in IL, I decided to seek additional information from Brent. I was impressed with Brent's knowledge and experience. I ended up firing my public defender (who was about to have me plead guilty) to hire Brent. After hiring Brent, we reviewed all of the details of my case. He immediately saw "red flags" and was able to investigate my case thoroughly, and in the end filed a motion to dismiss the case. My case was thrown out by the judge siding with Brent instead of the Attorney General from the state. In facing some significant charges, Brent was able to make me feel comfortable and I immediately thought I could trust his knowledge and experience to help me defend my rights in court. I knew he was fighting for me and could prove the charges were false. I would highly recommend Brent if you are need of a competent and professional lawyer to represent you
