An Attorney With Experience In Family And Criminal Court

CPS cases often begin in family court with dependency, neglect and abuse (DNA) charges, and may lead to criminal charges, such as:

  • Misdemeanor and felony child abuse
  • Misdemeanor and felony child sexual abuse
  • Domestic violence

Attorney Krsna Tibbs practices extensively in family and criminal law. He knows how to investigate the case against you and fight for your rights, no matter how serious the charges. He has experience with all types of cases, including those that involve false allegations.

In addition, our firm can assist you with domestic violence orders/emergency protective orders (DVO/EPOs) and interpersonal protective orders (IPOs). It is important to have a lawyer represent you at the hearing(s) so your side of the story is presented to the judge. If you have an order taken out against you, you must understand the restrictions and consequences. DVOs and IPOs can last for up to three years. You may be ordered to leave the home you share with the accuser and to pay temporary spousal and/or child support. You may not be allowed to see your children.

If you violate one of these orders, you will face additional criminal charges. Violation of protective orders is considered contempt of court. You will likely be arrested and may be sentenced to jail time.
