Peace Orders

Baltimore Defense Lawyer Protecting the Rights of the Criminally-Accused

In Maryland, restraining orders have two categories: protective orders and peace orders. While protective orders serve to prevent victims of domestic violence from harmful interaction with the person named on the order, peace orders encompass other, non-domestic relationships. Peace orders can be enforced if someone experiences problems with another individual with whom they do not live, such as a person they’re dating, a neighbor, a stranger, or someone else.

Peace orders are issued to those who feel they are threatened or in physical danger and involve certain acts. Acts covered by peace orders include:

  • Serious bodily harm inflicted or threatened
  • Assault in any degree
  • Sexual assault or attempted rape
  • False imprisonment
  • Stalking
  • Trespassing
  • Revenge porn
  • Criminal visual surveillance

I’ve Been Served a Peace Order. Do I Need a Lawyer?

It is worth noting that a peace order doesn’t go on a criminal record, because it is handled in civil court. However, many who petition for a peace order in Maryland do press criminal charges for one of the above-mentioned acts. Because a criminal charge of assault, rape, or stalking is extremely serious and the penalties are severe, it’s important for you to seek legal representation for yourself as soon as possible after being served a peace order.

Don’t leave your future to chance. Contact me, a Baltimore criminal defense lawyer, as soon as you become aware of the peace order filed against you. I will help you assemble a solid defense. I offer free case consultations, so you have nothing to lose.

    “I received a speeding ticket on 95 in Baltimore recently, and I retained Mark Scheuerman to represent me in Maryland court. Mark was thorough and professional during the entire process, and secured a favorable judgement on my behalf. I highly recommend Mark and also highly recommend retaining the services of an attorney if you have been issued a speeding ticket in the State of Maryland.”

  • 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!”
