Protective Orders

Baltimore Criminal Lawyer Defending Those Named in Protective Orders

Sometimes called restraining orders, protective orders are court-certified documents prohibiting the person named from approaching or contacting the person who sought the order, the petitioner. A protective order differs from a peace order: Protective orders involve two parties in a domestic relationship, and peace orders involve non-domestic relationships. The existence of a protective order in itself is not a criminal charge, because it is a civil law matter. However, violation of a protective order can lead to criminal charges. Those prohibited from contacting or approaching a person named in the protective order are subject to fines and jail, depending on the nature of the offense and the original criminal charges.

As an experienced criminal defense attorney in Baltimore, my law firm, The Law Office of Mark G. Scheuerman, LLC, has handled many cases involving protective orders. If you’ve been hit with a protective order and feel the petitioner used it as a means of retaliation or to tarnish your name, you need to build a solid defense. While a protective order doesn’t go on your criminal record, it still can have very unpleasant consequences. Those who have been served a protective order are forced to vacate a residence shared with the accuser and often lose custody of their children if they do not challenge the protective order.

  • 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.”

  • 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.”
