Though, we always make it a point to emphasize that a protective order is ultimately a piece of paper.

What to Do If You Want to Challenge a Restraining Order
Our Galveston family law attorneys understand that not all protective orders are sought on legitimate grounds. Unfortunately, there are cases in which a spouse makes false allegations of domestic abuse. This happens for many different reasons, including because bad-acting spouses are attempting to secure more favorable child custody, child support or property division terms for themselves. The simple fact is that most petitions for protective orders are granted. As such, those facing false allegations need to take immediate action to fight back and protect themselves. If something like this has happened to you, our attorneys are here to handle all of your criminal and family law needs.

I hired them a while back for a DWI out in Harris County, they're good and if you need help with any kind of legal matter, give em a call. For a lawyer, Tad has a great personality so working with him should be easier than working with other lawyers.
He is the one lawyer that I can call and put my trust into. We’ve used him a couple of times, once for a family matter and another time for a troubled relative. He’ll help, tell you the truth with no sugar-coating, and will work for his salt. He’s a good guy and when you go to their office, they make you feel at home, like you’re part of the team. Good lawyers and great folks.
I've had the pleasure of working with Tad personally as a technology consultant for him in the past. We've eaten lunch and dinner together. I know that Tad is very dedicated to his clients and cares for them off the clock. He's definitely the lawyer you want on your side.
