Legal Answers
8 Questions Answered

Q. A vapo was placed on me with hearsay. They demanded gun be turned in. Never used in any way to threaten ect. My rights
A: Hello, I would need more information to help you. We are available until 9pm this evening for a free phone consultation and tomorrow morning at 9am.
Q. If me and my roommate both get a Temporary Protective order, what happens? Asking from Washington State
A: Hi, in that scenario, you would both be required to remain away from each other. However, the law disfavors competing protection orders so once a final hearing is scheduled, a judge will determine who gets a final order. These usually last one year.
Q. can i have past convictions removed from my record ?
A: Washington State does allow for vacation of certain DV convictions. Having the conviction vacated and the charge dismissed will clear your record and increase job opportunities moving forward. Please reach out to an attorney who can review your criminal history, the specific DV case and other factors to determine if you are eligible. We handle this type of case in Olympia so please feel free to call us any day of the week for a free consultation.
