We take swift yet thoughtful action for our clients, whether they are seeking a PFA or need to have one removed. Under the leadership of Westmoreland County attorney Debra Henry, our firm is a place where domestic violence issues are handled with sensitivity, care and urgency.

When Might A PFA Be Appropriate?

If you are in any of the following types of relationships and you have been victimized by or threatened with abuse, then you may want to consider seeking a protection from abuse order:

  • Spouses
  • Domestic partners
  • Any type of sexual or romantic relationship
  • Former spouses or former domestic partners
  • Immediate family members

What Does A PFA Do?

PFAs are very powerful. They have several immediate consequences that alter the landscape of family life. For example, alleged abusers can be removed from the home, can be prevented from seeing their children, and can face restrictions on where they can and cannot go for up to three years.

PFAs are very helpful for victims of domestic violence, but they also greatly disrupt the lives of those who are falsely accused, making it critical for such people to seek legal help. We handle both sides of these disputes for clients in the Greater Pittsburgh area.
