Suitland, MD asked in Criminal Law and Military Law for Maryland

Q: What type of lawyer do I need to sue someone for harassment/stalking?

I have been photographed without my consent multiple times in a publicly used area. These photographs, along with phone calls, have been used to instigate issues with our housing management, we aren't sure to what end. These individuals have tried to bring us to court under pretenses, and one of them has aggressively approached my wife & child in front of witnesses, one of whom is a military police member. My wife & I would like to know what we can do.

A: You can file for a civil peace order, and discuss the case with the police department or take out an application for statement of charges at the commissioner's office. You can also speak with a civil litigator about injunctive relief, defamation, false light and other civil claims wherein you could seek money damages.
