Father Reunited with Children
In a bond review hearing before a District Court Judge, Mr. Emden convinced the judge to reduce a very high bond to a bond of only $2,500. He also convinced the judge to eliminate the “ no contact” provision of a court order which had prevented his client from seeing his children. As a result of this ruling, the parent, who had been charged with assault, false imprisonment of his child, and multiple counts of violating a protective order against his wife, won the right to have visitation with his children.
