Criminal Protective Orders

A criminal protective order, additionally known as a restraining order, is an order from the courts declaring that a person must refrain from doing particular acts, generally involving seeing, interacting with, threatening, hurting or otherwise harassing another person or individual. If you fail to fulfill the requirements of such an order placed against you, you could face serious charges if you don't take action and contact a Temecula criminal defense attorney.

Typically, violations of protective orders are misdemeanors. However, if you have two or more previous incidents on your record of violating a restraining order or if you stalked, harassed or the individual you are not to contact in any way, you could be charged with a felony.

A huge thank you to Parwana Anwar who represented my husband in a difficult case. She is an honest, and hard working attorney who fought hard to keep my husband out of jail and to keep me calm and reassured along the way. Hands down, best attorney experience we have ever had! Stephanie L.

Most lawyers keep you in the dark but Parwana explained every step to me along the way. She always answered my calls and my questions. I trust her completely! I can honestly say I am free because of her. She never gave up on me and I am eternity grateful! David I.

Parwana fought and won my case against Riverside County. I was facing 2 felony strikes which she contested and got completely dismissed! If it wasn't for her hard work, determination and commitment to my case I would be behind bars for crimes I did not commit. Thank you so much Parwana! Roger L.
