Harassment has long been recognized as unacceptable behavior that holds the offending party legally responsible for their unwanted actions. This readily accessible legal recourse provides many victims with hope and, more importantly, a sense of justice. However, with the dawn of the internet age and the launch of such social networking communities as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, harassment has been taken to another level.
At Lonich Patton Ehrlich Policastri, we have assisted clients with harassment allegations for more than 10 years. We have a firm understanding of the complexities of harassment cases in the Internet age. Whether you have falsely been accused of harassment or need an attorney to shield you from offensive behavior, we are ready to help. Contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation with one of our attorneys.
Our attorneys have successfully protected clients with harassment concerns, as well as those clients who have been unfairly accused of harassment.
We handle harassment claims in any form, including those involving the following multi-media communication tools:
- Text messages
- Instant messages
- Social networking communities
Although the information age has provided a new format for individuals to harass one another, the courts have remained consistent in their protection of individuals. Any unwarranted communication that reaches a harmful level can be stopped. Our attorneys have helped clients obtain restraining orders to prohibit face-to-face harassment or to stop the posting of unwanted messages on someone’s personal Facebook or MySpace page.
Looking to Obtain a Restraining Order?
If you need a restraining order, we will work hard to demonstrate that you need one. As a first step, we will investigate your harassment allegations to evaluate the threats or unwarranted communications. For example, if your ex-spouse unexpectedly visits your child outside of the terms of your divorce agreement, we will work with witnesses to prove your accusations.
Our attorneys can also subpoena the offending party and require them to produce the offensive e-mails or text messages. These e-mail and text messages provide a record of harassment and assist in substantiating claims of harassment.
