Domestic Violence Attorney in Peoria

Effective Representation from Miller Law Offices

Cases of domestic violence and abuse are taken very seriously in the state of Illinois. If you or a loved one has been harmed by an individual within your place of residence or by an intimate partner, you must take action to protect yourself.

In the case that you are on the other side of the order, and it has been falsely made against you, my firm can protect your rights. False allegations are often made to gain possession of the family residence or to limit a parent's access to minor children. I can provide family law or criminal defense representation.

According to the Illinois Domestic Violence Act, common acts of domestic abuse include:

  • Intimidation
  • Harassment
  • Physical abuse
  • Stalking
  • Exploitation
  • Willful deprivation

It is a crime for anyone to display a pattern of physical, mental, or emotional abuse against a member of his or her household. If you are a victim of any type of domestic violence, you should immediately seek legal assistance from my firm.

Obtaining an Order of Protection

The law permits victims of domestic violence to obtain an order of protection, which is an order that forbids the alleged abuser from committing further abuse. When you retain me as your Peoria family law attorney, I can help you petition the court for a protective order that best suits your circumstances.

Orders of protection come in different forms, such as:

  • Emergency orders
  • Interim orders
  • Plenary orders

I encourage you to take immediate action to ensure that you are given the legal protection you deserve. Contact my firm at once to protect your rights and ensure your safety. When you call me, I can provide you with a free initial consultation about your case and your legal options.

I Highly Recommend Mr. Miller My parents and I first came in contact with Mr. Miller a few months ago (May of 2012). Being unfamiliar with how the entire process goes within the system when an arrest is made, my parents had contacted Mr. Miller for some legal advice due to a very poor decision I had made which resulted in my arrest (two felony charges; possession of a controlled substance and intent to deliver). Speaking on my parent's behalf, they had said that in comparison to the few other lawyers they had spoken to; Mr. Miller was very professional, straightforward, and very knowledgeable about the situation I had gotten myself into. I am extremely pleased that Mr. Miller was the one who had helped my family and I get through the situation at hand. Throughout the entire process Mr. Miller kept us informed and up to date about what was going on, what could happen, and what was most likely going to happen. Mr. Miller is very professional, understanding, non-judgmental, and very knowledgeable about the criminal justice system. I appreciated that whenever speaking to him about my legal situation, he knew my case, another major factor which stands out was that he was pretty much always available to speak to when trying to get in contact with him and if for some reason I was unable to get a hold of him, he always returned phone calls back right away and also responded to e-mails quickly, he never kept me waiting for a reply! I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my case, which resulted in both of my charges being completely dropped. Thank you Mr. Miller!
