Five Star Client Reviews Trusted Colorado Family Law Attorneys
Our case was one of the worst for the record books. A case of precedent. We had lies at every turn from opposing counsel and mom that needed to be debunked and Fred, Wendi and Lucy were there to save my family! They treated my family as their own and won massively for us in court! They were fair and compassionate with my son's best interest in mind. Over the course of our case we had several (top, so they said) lawyers but only Dunsing & Deakins brought us the WIN! They successfully represented us in appeals court and worked great with the UCCJEA laws for over the state jurisdiction. You don't need to look anywhere else because this firm will work intelligently and tirelessly for you and your family! They are more then just lawyers, they became advocates and friends.

Lucy, Wendi, and Fred were all amazing throughout my case. Lucy's knowledge and expertise, as well as the law firm's professional connections with mediators and child family investigators, led to a custody resolution that truly represents the best interest of my son. Many thanks!View On Google
Types of Protection Orders Understanding the Differences
Mandatory Protection OrderIn a criminal case, a mandatory protection order prohibits the defendant from contacting or harassing the victim of a crime until the criminal case is resolved by the court.
Temporary Civil Protection OrderIf you feel that another person poses a threat to you or a member of your family, you can pursue a temporary civil protection order to avoid physical, emotional, or financial harm.
Permanent Civil Protection OrderIf the court finds that the person you filed a temporary civil protection order against is still a threat your safety or a loved one's well being, they can then issue a permanent order.
Emergency Protection Order (EPO)Emergency protection orders are three-day restraining orders issued by the police. EPOs are sought for immediate protection outside of court hours (e.g., weekends and holidays).
