Probation Defense That Considers Your Needs

Any legal challenge is frightening, but when you're going to court for a probation violation or revocation, your freedom may be on the line. The probation system is different than a regular criminal proceeding. With everything on the line, you need an attorney who can negotiate and defend you.

Probation violations are judged by preponderance of the evidence, instead of requiring proof beyond a reasonable doubt. This means you need an attorney who understands the nuances of the system and what the judge or probation seeks in charging you.

Common revocations or violations include:

  • Failure of a drug test
  • Failure to report
  • Committing a new offense
  • Failure to pay fines or fees
  • Failure to complete assigned community service
  • Failure to complete assigned drug awareness or treatment programs
  • Failure to appear in court
