What Did I Do Wrong?
If you are accused of a restraining order violation, it means that you defied (a) an automatic 72-hour no-contact injunction following an arrest for spousal abuse, or (b) a permanent restraining order that continues the temporary order.Virtually any action can be considered a violation of a restraining order:
- Showing up at the house or the person’s workplace
- Going to your children’s school or day care
- Phone calls, e-mails or letters
- Sending flowers or other tokens of apology
- Messages to the victim via a third party
- Stalking, harassment, hang-ups or threats
After an absolutely crazy incident that could not have been seen almost anywhere besides a movie. I received some serious charges and was in search of an attorney. They would not only represent me but need to do the right thing because it's the right thing...- Lance F.
I, unfortunately, was involved with two separate situations within a few years of each other, which left me in quite a bind both times. I was lucky enough to have Caryn assist me in both cases and was absolutely floored with the knowledge and expertise that not only she carries, but the firm as a whole. One of the best, if not the best lawyers I've ever come across. Extremely nice and very honest. I was able to resolve my situations with minimal impact and continue my life without fear of being held back.- Former Client
I dug myself a deep hole and didn’t have much hope or luck with the attorney I used before. I called Gasper law group and Caryn Adams was my attorney that took charge of everything. I couldn’t have asked for anything better the outcome she made possible is everything I wanted. She is great at her job and takes cases seriously … don’t have much hope leave it to Caryn she will change that. Thanks Gasper law group you’re the best!- Mike L.
Christine, Kris, and Ebony are amazing and compassionate. We enjoyed every interaction. Gasper Law firm keeps appropriate communication and not in excess which keeps our cost low. We are so very grateful. Even if an unexpected turn in our guardianship hearing they remained diligent to ensure things were done in a timely manner. Thank you so much! You helped complete our family and we are forever grateful.- Misty M.
Highly professional team of attorneys and paralegal staff who work hard to reach the best outcomes for their clients. A courteous, respectful, and efficient group in all phases and aspects of due diligence, and discovery with effective preparation of cases entrusted to them. The partner representing me, Ms. Caryn Adams was truly impressive in her knowledge of the law, her empathy, and her care for getting the best possible resolution in my favor in pre-trial negotiation. And I have no doubt she and her team would be just as dedicated and efficient in more complex defense situations. I recommend them highly and without reservation in all areas of the law in which they are eminently qualified.- Salah H.

Protecting Your Rights and Reputation
To be arrested and charged, you must have been served with the restraining order or had knowledge that it was issued (i.e., the victim, friend or family member informed you of the order). We explore all defenses, including lack of intent to harm or intimidate, false accusations and motivations of the victim relating to a pending custody dispute or divorce.
In one case, we represented a man accused of driving by the house to spy on his estranged wife. Attorney Allen Gasper proved that the incident never occurred; receipts proved that our client was on the other side of Colorado at the time.
We also serve clients in divorce and family law matters. Managing Attorney, Carrie E. Kelly, heads the GLG division that practices in divorce and custody law.
We fight the charges to preserve your freedom and avoid the collateral consequences. If you were arrested for a restraining order violation, contact us for a free initial consultation.
