Attorney Phil Jacobs of Logan-Thompson, P.C. was recently awarded a Certificate of Appreciation for his assistance in implementing a new Order of Protection program for Cleveland and Bradley County. Orders of Protection exist to protect victims of physical violence, sexual assault or destruction of property. Because of their importance in protecting individuals from further abuse, it is essential that the court has an efficient method by which to approach them.

Due to an increasing volume of Orders of Protection being requested in the area, the court felt the need to restructure itself in order to meet demands. Phil Jacobs worked to address this issue alongside attorney Cathy Allhouse by developing a process that directly addresses prior concerns through a system that rotates judges and utilizes volunteer attorneys in order to maintain an efficient process that meets the needs of all parties involved.

In an interview with the Cleveland Daily Banner, Judge Dan Swafford stated in regards to this new system that, "We are fortunate to have judges, clerks, and attorneys willing to work in a partnership to achieve this goal. I appreciate the professionalism and dedication of all involved in making this such a successful endeavor."
