Wheaton Lawyers Providing Defense Against Stalking Orders Of Protection

Accusations that you are following someone or have put that person under surveillance could result in the filing of a stalking order of protection or no contact order. The legal injunction has serious consequences and requires the immediate attention of an experienced criminal defense attorney.

Experienced And Knowledgeable Defense Attorneys On Your Side

The attorneys at Marquardt & Belmonte, P.C., are former felony prosecutors who also possess thorough knowledge of Illinois state anti-stalking laws. That background provides them an in-depth point of view of the opposition.

They not only know prosecutors' strategies and tactics, but also the impact that a stalking order of protection has on the recipient. The no contact order places limits on where they can go and bans the possession of firearms or a Firearm Owner's Identification card. A stalking conviction is a class 4 felony that can result in multiple years in fail and up to $25,000 in fines. From there, a permanent criminal record can prevent the pursuit of jobs or education.

Accusations of stalking do not always lead to orders of protection. We take an individualized approach in building strong defenses and getting to the facts. In some cases, we encourage our clients to seek professional help immediately, a step that can put them in a better light before the court.
