Experienced Seattle
Anti-Harrassment and Protective Order Lawyers

Everyone deserves to feel safe and secure as they go about their daily life. If someone has been harassing you (or a minor child or adult you are responsible for) it can feel intimidating and scary. Washington state law allows you to petition a judge to grant an Antiharassment Protection Order, meaning that person isn’t allowed to contact or harm you, and any breach of that order would bring severe legal consequences.

Whether you are a victim or wrongly accused of harassment and want help to clear your name, our restraining order lawyers will fight to make sure the whole story is fairly considered by the judicial system. We know these situations can be distressing and confusing, and we endeavor to clearly explain the process and to give you peace of mind through the proceedings. Contact us today to discuss your case.
