If you are charged with assault or are faced with a protective order or peace order from your spouse or partner, the consequences can be permanent. Over the last few years, Maryland has taken an extreme approach to cases involving domestic disputes. There is even a special category for these in some jurisdictions, including Baltimore City. If you are charged with assault and the other party is your current or former spouse or partner, this can automatically trigger the case to move into the “domestic violence” arena which has special prosecutors and extra resources designed to punish offenders severely and they often seek jail sentences. If you area facing a protective or peace order, unless you win at your hearing, you will likely be forced to surrender any firearms you have and you will also have limitations placed on where you can go and who you can see. In other words A conviction will harm your career and your lifestyle and potentially your freedom. You may also lose your child custody and visitation rights. You may go to jail.
The Law Offices of Allan Rombro aggressively defends clients accused of domestic violence in both civil and criminal courts.
Representing You in Civil Proceedings
Following the issuance of a civil order of protection, the Court schedules a hearing. At that hearing it is essential that you are represented by experienced counsel. Attempting to represent yourself is not a wise move. If a protective order is issued against you, you may be forced to leave your residence and you may lose the use of shared property such as a vehicle. The existence of an order also acts as a red flag if you are stopped by the police for any reason. A final protective order typically lasts one year and can be renewed indefinitely.
