A final peace order can cause severe damage to your reputation, and even disqualify you from certain jobs. If you work with children, or need a security clearance, a peace order can be especially dangerous to your career.

There are many legal and factual defenses available that I can use to get your case dismissed. I have successfully defended peace order cases in courts across central Maryland. After your case is over, I can also often block public access to any court records showing that a complaint was filed.
It is important to defend peace order cases before a final peace order is issued. A final peace order can make it very easy for your accuser to file false or exaggerated criminal charges in the future.
If you feel that your accuser has lied in the complaint, you should assume that they are ready and willing to lie regarding subsequent criminal charges. A prosecutor may use a final peace order coupled with the alleged victim's false or exaggerated claims to have you incarcerated for violating the order. Worse, because your accuser often claims that there is a danger to him or herself that continued after the issuance of a peace order, you could potentially be jailed for months awaiting trial. I can help you avoid these grim possibilities.
Sometimes criminal charges are filed at the same time that the petition for a peace order is filed by your accuser. You may not even know about them until you are arrested on a warrant well after you learn about the peace order. I can help find out whether you have any pending criminal charges or arrest warrants, and I can also defend you against any criminal charges that may be related to the order.
I've been involved with many of these cases in the past. I can defend you in court, and explain your options. It is important to contact me as soon as you know about the order. Even if you've already been to court on your own and lost, I may still be able to help you. Call me at (301) 556-8709 for a consultation today.
