Dealing with difficult family situations is something everyone can relate to, but if criminal accusations are ever made against you, the collateral impact of these claims can significantly impact your life and your rights as a citizen. If this ever happens, it is important to discuss your particular set of circumstances with a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney. Such was the case for a Michigan father after his son filed a domestic violence related Personal Protection Order (PPO) against him, indicating that he was in fear for his safety. Understandably, this caused a substantial amount of stress, but when he learned that a PPO also jeopardized his Concealed Pistol License (CPL), the man decided to consult with a Lansing criminal defense lawyer with experience handling firearm and protection order issues.
This led him to the offices of DeBruin Law, PLLC, where Lansing defense attorney Tiffany DeBruin got to know him and the specifics of his case. With a considerable understanding of Michigan protection orders, attorney DeBruin skillfully navigated the court process and ultimately showed the incidents described in his son’s PPO were false. This resulted in the court dismissing the personal protection order, which alleviated her client’s concerns and allowed him to maintain his CPL.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
