Domestic Violence & Protective Orders 

Our attorneys have a depth of experience handling domestic violence matters, including assistance in the establishment of the domestic violence assistance project in Fulton County at the “Safe Families” office.   Most often, these matters involve requests for or enforcement of protective orders, also often called restraining orders.  These orders relate to acts of abuse that have been threatened or committed by a spouse, domestic partner or other family members.

Smith & Lake is serious about protecting all individuals from acts of domestic violence.  As we assist clients with these types of matters, we listen carefully to their needs and concerns. We maintain sensitivity to each unique situation and work as quickly as possible to protect our clients, their rights and to ensure the safety of all.
