Washington, D.C. Civil Protection Order (CPO) Lawyer

Trial Attorney Jay P. Mykytiuk defends Civil Protection Order (CPO) respondents in the District of Columbia. While a CPO is a civil remedy, much like a restraining order, its issuance can have criminal consequences, and impact one’s ability to obtain a security clearance necessary for employment. CPOs can be issued for up to one year, and can be extended at the end of the CPO period. Your D.C. CPO lawyer will explain your options, including negotiation, entry of an order without admissions, and a contested hearing.
