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.

Matthew Miller is an All Star!!! I contacted Matthew Miller after I was arrested in Peoria county in May 2014 for possession of 2 ounces of marijuana. I had never been in trouble like that before and I was very scared that I was going to go to Jail or have years of probation; putting my life on hold. Mr. Miller was incredibly responsive. He always contacted immediately whenever there was new information about my case. Matthew went out of his way for me. After helping me get my car back he was able to convince the prosecutor to drop the felony charge I had to a misdemeanor because the money I was paying to the county for my car was punishment enough. Not only that but he was able to get me in front of the judge right away on my court date. Even before the judge presented himself to the rest of the court room. I spent a total of one and a half hours which included paying my court fines and reporting to probation for my court supervision information. I really could not have asked for a better person to represent me. Matthew Miller truly helped me and never judged me as a person, he even stated he was happy to help good people like me. Matthew is my new hero and I encourage anybody who just made a mistake like I did to seek him out for help and support with their case.
