Have you Heard “Marshall Law” on the Radio?

Do you wake up early Monday mornings with burning legal questions? If so, tune in to my radio segment entitled “Marshall Law” on the radio at WDAD 1450-AM. The show airs every other Monday morning at 7:45 during the “Indiana in the Morning” show with host Todd Marino. For each live show, Todd and I spend a few minutes discussing a different legal topic. Past shows have centered on estate planning, probate, residential real estate transactions, and child custody.

This week I talked a little bit about domestic violence and Protection from Abuse orders. We discussed the requirements for filing a PFA in Pennsylvania, how it can protect you, and what the consequences are for both the victim and the alleged abuser in the event a PFA Order is entered. We also touched on the fact that only relatives; spouses; and ‘intimate partners’ may file PFA petitions against one another – PFAs generally don’t apply between neighbors, strangers, or acquaintances. If you follow my Blawg, you will remember that I gave a written overview of PFA’s a while back, and you can find it here.

The next installment of Marshall Law will be Monday, December 1st. If you have an idea for a topic, contact me and I will try to cover it. Of course, we take on-air questions during the show, so feel free to call.
