Greenspun Shapiro represented a petitioner seeking a civil protective order in the Fairfax County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court, as part of the volunteer program managed by Legal Services of Northern Virginia.  The petitioner was seeking a protective order against his ex-wife due to threats he had received.  After hearing from four witnesses and hearing arguments by both sides in a trial that lasted nearly five hours, the judge granted the protective order with all the conditions requested by the petitioner.
