Matthew provides personalized phone support for those facing wrongful:
- Civil restraining orders
- Civil harassment orders
- Civil protective orders
- Civil protection orders
- Civil stalking protective orders
While I do provide general phone support, you must know that I am not a lawyer and I do not and cannot give you legal advice. What I do, however, is share my opinions, experiences, and research.
I do not provide phone support on any criminal-related matters. That is beyond the scope of my personal experience and education and criminal matters vastly differ from civil cases. That is something that you absolutely must find a criminal defense lawyer for. If you cannot afford a criminal defense lawyer, you will have to seek out a public defender.
Although I am not a lawyer and I do not provide legal advice, you will gain insights by own personal experiences, observations, and research from pre-hearing to the hearing to the aftermath and the appellate process.
This is some of what I will discuss and share with you in a Phone Support Call:
- Explain generally what civil restraining, harassment, protective orders are & how they generally work
- How civil restraining orders, harassment, protective orders can be used against you
- What legal papers and legal cases I read and researched to prepare for my case
- How to find, interview, and consult with lawyers
- The information I gathered and the information I should have gathered but missed for my hearing
- How my hearing transpired and the things I said to the judge
- How I cross-examined my adversary and what I would do differently if I had to do it again
- How I testified on my behalf, what I did right, and what I did wrong
- The mistakes I made and the things I did correctly
- How I prepared for my hearing and set the groundwork for success for a later appeal
- How I learned to dissect and parse my state’s civil stalking statute
- What exhibits I submitted to the court and the exhibits that were used against me
- Why my hearing was recorded by a court reporter and how I obtained an official court transcript
- How I made my opening statement and what I did right
- How I made my closing statement and the mistakes I made
- How I asked for breaks and used breaks to my benefit
- Why you must always ask for what you want

Matthew Valor Comments about Scheduling of Phone Support Calls
Phone Support Calls are NOT my primary line of business. It is a side business project. As such, I fit Phone Support Calls into open slots during my workday. If I have an extraordinarily busy or exhausting day, I don’t do Phone Support Calls. If I am sick with a cold or flu, I won’t do Phone Support Calls. I don’t do Phone Support Calls on weekends and most U.S. holidays. I do tend to make Phone Support Calls during weekday afternoons (1pm – 6pm EST) but that is NOT an absolute rule. I try to call people back as quickly as I can (within 1-3 business days on a first-pay, first-callback basis) but unexpected things do come up. If I cannot reach you, I will certainly leave you my number and have you call me at a time better suited for you.
Please don’t ask to set appointments, I cannot commit or promise specific times. However, I will make every attempt to call at a time-frame that is reasonably convenient for you.
