Attorney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a client who had a protection from abuse (PFA) order filed against him by an ex-girlfriend. On the day of the hearing, Attorney McAllister was able to successfully negotiate a settlement, without any admissions by our client, whereby the “temporary PFA” was extended for a short period of time, after which the “temporary PFA” would expire. Under the terms of a normal PFA, a Judge has the authority to grant a PFA for a maximum of three (3) years.
Immediately after the “temporary PFA” expired, Attorney McAllister was able to get a Court Order directed that the Berks County Sheriff’s Office return the firearms and permit to carry that were taken from our client. Although our client was very nervous and scared at the start of the PFA case, he was very happy that Attorney McAllister was able to successfully navigate him through the court system and secure a positive outcome.
