Customer Question

There was an order of protection poit against me in new York. My lawyer wants to call and speak to the protected person but I am worried that this will be seen as a violation of the protective order. Will the protective order be violated if my lawyer contacts the protected person by phone?

Thank you for your question. I look forward to assisting you.

This is not a violation. Only your attorney can do that. A personal restraining order prohibits direct and indirect contact. Sending messages through someone else (such as a friend or family member) is indirect contact but the exception is an attorney. You would not get in trouble for that --and I'm sure your lawyer knows that, because they would not not want to do anything that could potentially get you into trouble,
