Peace Orders

Stop the Cycle


Peace orders in Maryland often require an attorney like Brian Sadur or Donny Knepper to help resolve the situation. They can often result in a long string of court appearances and it is often difficult for the courts to determine the best possible outcome for all parties. Peace orders can be used to harass and they can also be legitimate orders of protection. Sorting through these possibilities is difficult for the court and an attorney is important in offering protection for both parties. Maryland recently lowered the burden of proof in obtaining a peace order and so they will most likely become more common. Violations of a peace order are criminal in nature and an attorney is important in defending against them.
