The Law Offices of Amar S. Weisman represents both victims of domestic violence  and individuals accused of perpetrating domestic violence.

Each action for a protective order begins with the filing of a Petition For Protection from Domestic Violence, Child Abuse, or Vulnerable Adult Abuse.

Services Provided to Victims of Domestic Violence In Baltimore County and the State of Maryland. 

The first step in assessing a potential domestic violence matter is to determine whether the person eligible for relief should seek a protective order or a peace order. Protective orders can be sought against relatives, a spouse, an ex-spouse, or an individual with whom you have a child. The next step is to determine whether there are grounds to pursue a protective order. Under the Maryland Domestic Violence Act, one must establish an imminent fear of bodily harm based on a objective/subjective hybrid standard that is nuanced but well understood by Amar S. Weisman.

Elements of the Domestic Violence Case For the District Courts  Located In Catonsville, Essex, and Towson. 

On the other hand, there are certain overt elements that can cement the case for obtaining a protective order: Shooting the victim with a gun, Stabbing the victim, Biting the victim , Hitting (with an object), Shoving the victim, raping the victim, kicking the victim, Strangling the victim, Choking the victim, punching the victim with a fist, Shoving the victim, and slapping the victim. Matters become more complicated when dealing with “threats” of domestic violence in the absence of physical evidence. When prosecuting a domestic violence action, the attorney gathers properly admissible evidence including photographs, hospital records, police reports, telephone records, and live witnesses (including compelling court appearances by way of subpoena).
