We Can Help You Avoid Probation Violation Penalties
If you violate probation, a Judge can impose the maximum penalty for the original charge. When a violation of probation is alleged, the Judge may sign the warrant and not include a bond. We can file a motion to set a bond and present testimony to the Judge on why you should be released from jail.
We will analyze the reason for your violation of probation and determine the best way to defend your case. If your violation of probation is for allegedly committing a new offense, the best way for us to assist you is by defending you against these new allegations.
