San Diego Domestic Violence Restraining Order Overview

Restraining orders are issued by the court to prevent acts from recurring that violate the laws under the Domestic Violence Prevention Act.  In order to be considered a domestic violence restraining order as opposed to a civil harassment, one you must have, or have had, a close personal relationship with the party you are trying to have restrained.

If you feel your safety is at risk because someone close to you is attempting to cause you harm, contact The Law Office of Sammer A. Zakhour for a free case evaluation.

Client Testimonials

  • Defense lawyer

    Thank you!! I am grateful to have a lawyer who takes the time out of his day, even a day before his birthday to meet with me, text me updates throughout the day and make sure I understand everything that is happening. I had a great experience working with Sam, and the case is now behind us and I can go on with my life, free.

  • Incredibly helpful, thoughtful and thorough

    Overall, Sammer was professional, caring, communicative, and extremely hard-working. The very first day I called Sammer about attaining a restraining order, I was waiting for police to arrive at my home. He left work immediately to meet up with me on location and get all the details of the case. Throughout the legal process, he was available, timely, made the entire process easy and clear, and gave safety advice above and beyond legal matters.
