Stalking / Harassment / Injunctions

Have you been served with an injunction or restraining order?

If so, the police can arrest you without a warrant if law enforcement officials believe you went near, threatened or assaulted the person named on a protective order. Unfortunately, there are times when claims of harassment are inflated by the victim with respect to a threat of harm or the number of times that stalking actually occurred. That can lead to a restraining order being issued with too little evidence in support of the court's decision. In such cases, our defense lawyers can request a hearing to challenge the validity of the order issued against you.

At The Law Offices of Edwards & Jones, our attorneys have helped individuals defend their rights for stalking arrests and violations of protective orders for charges such as:

  • Harassing or Stalking
  • Stalking after an Injunction
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Masquerading as a Victim Online
  • Online Solicitation
  • Harassing or Stalking a Minor
  • Internet Stalking
  • Provocative Texting
  • Aggravated Stalking or Harassment
  • Posting Private Info about Others

Restraining Order Violations | Stalking Defense Lawyers

Violating a restraining order means you have been accused of disobeying a direct order issued by a judge and can have strong repercussions. However, the state must prove you acted with criminal intent, so viable defenses are usually available. Since complaints are often an easy way for one partner to exercise power or obtain leverage during a breakup or divorce, our defense attorneys are skilled at challenging the prosecutor's evidence, arguing that events were unintentional and seeking deferred adjudication for counseling or anger management classes.

Thank you for all your hard work!

I hired Mr. Jones to represent my son. We had never had to hire a lawyer and I was anxious. Mr. Jones took the time to explain what was happening and it helped lessen my concerns. Once we hired him he started work immediately and was able to get my son's case thrown out. We are very satisfied with his services. Robert H.

I hired Christopher for situation I got myself in. He worked hard to get my case dropped. I definitely would recommend this attorney to anyone needing one. He puts his heart in his work. Roy M.
★★★★★
I had the pleasure of having Mr. Edwards represent me in 2006. While I was charged with a crime, Mr Edwards insisted sternly that he was very confident he could successfully defend the charges against me. This man exudes confidence. It is my opinion that he is clearly one of the best lawyers in the city of Gainesville. You can't go wrong with Mr. Edwards!!! Everette Sr.

We are from Lake City, Florida. As parents, we sought the help of Mr. Edwards in my daughter's behalf. As a young lady, she had acquired multiple felonies with the prospect of 10-15 years in prison facing her. Mr. Edwards heard our case, took it on with confidence, and got her sentence reduced to 10 years probation, and restitution. That was 8 years ago, and my daughter is married, has a son, and is doing great. She hasn't even had a traffic violation. Because Mr. Edwards believed in us and took a chance, we will be forever be in his debt. He is a great lawyer, with a very big heart. Colin
