  • Child abuse
  • Assault
  • Stalking
  • Abuse of an adult if they are vulnerable

To be considered a “vulnerable adult” the person must not be capable of taking care of themselves.

The following are considered to be a household or family member:

  • People who are married
  • Relatives by blood
  • Relatives by adoption
  • Current or former spouses
  • People who live together
  • People who have a child in common
  • Parents
  • Stepparents

Protecting Against Domestic Violence Charges

In Maryland, domestic violence charges can be raised for simply putting someone in fear of their safety; your innocence could be jeopardized because someone thought you wanted to hurt them. In these situations, it is crucial that you get the chance to tell your side of the story and raise doubt about the suspicions against you.

Defenses against domestic violence include:

  • Mistake of fact, such as if the wrong person was accused of the acts in question
  • Self-defense
  • False allegations in order to gain an advantage
  • Consent, such as when two people have a heated argument
  • Lack of proof

Being convicted of a domestic abuse charge can lead to sentences ranging from years in prison to thousands of dollars in fines. Your rights to own a firearm will also be jeopardized.

  • Highly recommend!

    “Mark was a great fit for me, as a lawyer. Right from the beginning I felt comfortable with him and he felt confident we could win my case. Mark kept in touch and always returned my calls and emails quickly. He came fully prepared to court and ready for trial, my case was dismissed and my record cleared. I would definitely recommend him for anyone that finds themselves in a similar situation. Thank you!”

  • Mark Scheuerman is, in every way, a fantastic lawyer.

    “Mark Scheuerman is, in every way, a fantastic lawyer. He represented me two days in a row, and within a week of being hired. Both court dates had nothing short of fantastic outcomes. He really cares about people, and it shows in the way he conducts himself in and out of the courtroom. He just loves what he does, which makes the process much more smooth. His prices were extremely fair as well, considering the caliber of work you're getting out of it.”
