  • Parents

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.

  • Outstanding legal representation!

    “I was recently rear-ended on the beltway by a disbarred attorney. This person claimed that I was at fault due to road rage. The state trooper sided with the person who struck me. This resulted in 6 citations, 9 points on my driving record and $1000 in fines. If the charges would have stuck, I would have lost my license. My entire family would have been severely affected not to mention my livelihood. Thank God I chose Mark Scheuerman to represent me in court! Mark did an outstanding job examining all aspects of the charges, as well as the facts of the case. Having never experienced being in a courtroom before, he went above and beyond to prepare me for the trial. The result of his hard work was a complete acquittal. I can't speak highly enough of Attorney Scheuerman.”

  • 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.”
