No matter how serious the accusations against you, our firm can help. While a protective order is civil in nature, you may be investigated for charges, such as assault, rape, stalking, or causing bodily harm. To combat these charges, you need to contact the Law Offices of Maria Mena to speak with an experienced domestic violence defense lawyer about your case. We will do everything in our power to make sure that you are free from both your protective order and your charges of domestic violence! To take the first step in your case, call (240) 607-8686.
