Bauer, Jr., I help clients petition the court to obtain valid protective orders that grant them safety and give them peace of mind.

Restraining Orders In Louisiana
In Louisiana, protection orders take on many forms, depending on the specific situation and the protective mechanisms that a particular court prefers. The most common types of orders include:
- Temporary restraining orders (TROs): These orders grant protection before a court hearing, so the person applying for protection feels safe until the matter can be resolved in the courtroom.
- Protective orders: These orders grant protection after a court hearing in situations outlined by the state's Protection from Dating Violence Act, Domestic Abuse Assistance Act, and Children's Code Domestic Abuse Assistance Act.
- Injunctions against abuse: Injunctions serve a similar function to protective orders, and they prevent contact under certain sections of Louisiana law or during a divorce. Injunctions are classified as preliminary, issued before a hearing, and permanent, issued at the end of a trial.
In addition to representing both plaintiffs and defendants in matters involving restraining orders of all types in civil court, I also represent defendants in protective order hearings in criminal matters.
