Is it worth getting a lawyer for my Oregon stalking order case?
This question is standard, though completely subjective and fact-specific. Obtaining a stalking order does not require a lawyer, and it is usually secured without an attorney. However, if the matter goes to a hearing, while it is certainly possible for people to handle the stalking order hearing independently, it is probably not a great idea. In addition to being held to rules of procedure and evidence, the untrained person likely will not know which aspects of the law should require the most focus. Because judges are bound to follow the law, if you don't present the correct information, they may have no choice under the law to make a ruling that is adverse to your goals.
Oregon stalking orders have significant consequences, so having an experienced Oregon stalking order lawyer help you is almost certainly in your best interest.
