Order of Protection

An Order of Protection can be issued by the Court to protect the Petitioner (person seeking the Order of Protection) from the Respondent (person who allegedly harmed or threatened to harm the Petitioner.) There are two different forums for getting an Order of Protection: Criminal Court and Family Court. An Order of Protection from either forum can address your safety concerns, including domestic violence, but they differ in a variety of ways. It is important for you to pick the forum that will work best for you and your situation.

Gilbride, Esq. if you have questions or if you would like advice on obtaining an Order of Protection.

Client Reviews
The most tenacious, caring, down to earth hometown hero! Not only an attorney, but a compassionate, realistic, FRIEND! He's the only attorney I know who answers his phone, calls to check in on you, and genuinely cares. Consummate professional that has his clients best interests at heart. Tim K.
Andrew is currently working with me, and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about his attentiveness to my situation and circumstances. HIGHLY recommended. Ralph R.
As first time home buyers, my husband and I were very stressed out, especially running into bumps in the road trying to obtain a mortgage within the contract time. Andy put our minds at ease throughout the whole process and was extremely knowledgeable. I have since referred a number of friends and family to Andy for all kinds of matters including residential Home Sales, Divorces and Family Court Matters. They, as us, have all been very pleased with his services. We highly recommend. Melissa and Thomas Q.
