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.

    “One to describe Mark's representation was AWESOME! Being a first time offender for driving while under a suspended drivers license Mark gave me more than enough assurance that everything was going to be okay. I was so nervous about going to court. When I reached the court room Mark had already settled everything with the states attorney office. Having my case dismissed! I am truly impressed by Mark's professionalism. He was very knowledgeable also educated me throughout the entire process. I am so thankful Mark represented me. He showed me why it is important to have a lawyer represent you. When you could be facing some maximum penalties including jail time. I will be sure to spread his good work.”

  • 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.”

  • The best there is

    “Facing 4 charges against me, including DWI and DUI which if charged I would lose my job. Mark was excited from Day 1 that we have a great case and he is going to do what he can to make sure that we get the best outcome for me, he gave me very detailed instructions on how to help better my case so that we can be prepared in court. Long story short, we beat the case and it was a complete acquittal. Thank you for everything Mark, I recommend you to anybody.”

  • I felt very confident in his ability to represent me.

    “I contacted Mark via email regarding several traffic violations. He responded that same day and was able to meet with me in person the next evening! Mark is very personable and knowledgeable and I felt very confident in his ability to represent me. He was well prepared for my hearings and was able to secure the best possible outcomes. I will definitely recommend Mark to any of my friends or family needing legal counsel.”

  • Phenomenal Lawyer that produces the best results for his clients. Worth every penny!

    “Mark Scheurman is one of the best lawyers to have in your corner in tough situations. He wants the best for his clients and produces great results. Under his representation, he always assured me that I was in good hands no matter how much I worried. He listened to me kept me well informed of my rights and options. Long story short I was given 13 citations by a cop after my car was crashed into the sidewalk even though I was not the driver. The citations alone were enough to revoke my license and included $1,300 worth of fines; furthermore, 2 of the citations carried a jail sentence up to 2 months each. I have never been in trouble before and never experienced any of this, but Mark handled everything. The day before court he called and told me he convinced the prosecutor to dismiss all13 citations because she did not have enough evidence to prove I was the driver and the only thing I had to was show up to court. Next thing I know, in court, the prosecutor dismissed every single citation as well as all the fines and I left with a clear record and not having to pay a penny. I'm so grateful for Mark because he really saved me from a bad situation that I was ready to plead guilty to even though I didn't do it because I was scared of the consequences if I didn't win. But he told me he would never let me plead guilty to something I didn't do and he handled it. He really is a blessing and I' m thankful for him and his representation. He knows the law and has a real passion for helping his clients. Thanks again Mark!!!!!! You are greatly appreciated.”
