After a tough battle yesterday, I took a huge monkey off my client’s back. His ex-wife had filed for a protective order because she didn’t like the shared custody arrangement that resulted from their divorce. Worse, the order forbade my client from even contacting his daughters. It took a lot of homework, but with a string of texts, I was able to persuade the court that the no contact order was baseless. My client was ecstatic, and he called his girls right away.
