An injunction is a court order to refrain from certain behavior. For example, an injunction can order someone not to call or text another person. The most common injunctions in Florida involve disputes between people, but injunctions can be entered in business matters too. If you’re looking for a St. Petersburg, FL injunction lawyer, we can help you.
We represent clients on both sides of injunctions, whether they’re asking for or defending against the injunction. Our services are tailored for each case because some injunctions require more preparation than others, so we charge an hourly fee for them.
Florida Statutes create injunctions for protection against:
- Domestic Violence
- Repeat Violence
- Dating Violence
- Sexual Violence
The varying types of injunctions require specific facts that must be presented to the judge. If those specific facts are not presented, then the injunction cannot be entered. We will work with you to uncover those facts while walking through the process.

The Types of Injunctions We Can Help You With
A Domestic Violence Injunction is the most common injunction petition in our area. A person can petition for a Domestic Violence Injunction if they’re a victim of domestic violence, or if they have reasonable cause to believe they’re in imminent danger of becoming a victim of domestic violence.
But what does “domestic” mean? In short, it means a family or household member. However, this definition can apply to a wide range of people.
A Stalking Injunction can be based on following, harassing, or cyberstalking. “Harass” is to engage in a course of conduct directed at a specific person, which causes substantial emotional distress to that person and serves no legitimate purpose. We’ve seen stalking cases involving neighbors, family members, and business associates.
Constitutionally protected activities like picketing or organized protests are not stalking.
Injunction cases can lead to big problems in the future, such as an arrest or jail time, or removal of your right to carry a gun or see your children. Call us to discuss your case and bring protection to your life.
