At Brasier Law, LLC, we help victims of stalking seek the necessary protective orders to enjoy peace of mind and relief from harassing behavior.
Scenarios of stalking can vary widely. Many people consider stalking to be situations where one individual falls in love or obsesses over another person to the point where he or she is following that person continually. While this is a common case of stalking, the net can be cast to include a wider scope of harassment.
A stalking order can be granted whenever a person has intentionally behaved in a way to alarm, coerce or concern another individual for his or her immediate safety. This has to have occurred within the last two years. No prior relationship needs to be in place, unlike a restraining order. The stalker generally displays aggressive behaviors, and mental instability often plays a role in the situation.
Generally, a written or verbal threat is involved. Because of this, it can be very difficult to fight these cases in the state of Oregon.
The Oregon Supreme Court staunchly upholds the First Amendment, which can make it difficult to submit written or verbal threats as harassing behaviors, no matter how intimidating they may be. Instead, other certain tests must be met.
At Brasier Law, LLC, we are equipped with the legal knowledge and understanding needed to gain you the protective orders that you need. We will gather all evidence and find the creative solutions that will make your case successful.
We understand how difficult and frightening these situations can be, and our lawyer will fight on your behalf to ensure that you are protected and can enjoy peace of mind.
