Protective Orders

Baltimore Criminal Lawyers 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.

Our criminal defense attorneys in Baltimore at The Law Office of Mark G. Scheuerman, LLC, has more than 25 years of collective experience and have 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 has a great reputation and good rapport with not only the judges and prosecutors but often the police officers as well. Based on the individual circumstances of my case, Mark laid out plan for me to complete prior to my court date. The end result could not have been more favorable and far exceeded my expectations.

  • 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!”
