Charlotte Criminal Lawyer Brad Smith answers the question: “Do I need to hire an attorney if I have been falsely accused?”
Most everyone can agree that violence against another person is wrong. North Carolina law has a system in place to protect those who have been abused at the hands of a spouse or partner through an order of protection. While orders of protection are excellent tools for people to feel secure and safe, they are not always warranted or correctly granted. Therefore, a defense attorney who is able to challenge an order of protection that may have been granted against you can help. Before you can challenge an order of protection, though, it is essential to understand what exactly an order of protection is and the types you might encounter.
