Experienced Help Following Probation Violations
By those who have never experienced it, probation is often viewed as the soft alternative to jail time — a mere slap on the wrist as opposed to an actual sentence. But in reality, probation is a difficult, burdensome set of rules that can complicate both your work life and your home life.
Moreover, violating probation is easier than most people realize. If you miss an appointment with your probation officer, fail a drug test or violate a protective order, you will likely end up in front of a judge and facing the threat of jail time.
At times like these, you could use the help of an experienced attorney. At Fox & Fox Co. L.P.A., we have decades of experience in criminal defense work and post-conviction matters like probation violations.
How We Can Help You
When you are accused of violating probation, you are required to go before a judge in a probation violation hearing. The judge will want to hear how and why you violated probation. If you cannot offer a reasonable explanation, you could be facing a jail sentence.
Our probation violations lawyers will work with you to discuss how to best present your case to the judge and how to show all the ways in which you are working to comply with the terms of your probation. A judge will want to see that you are taking your probation seriously and not just offering excuses. Working with an attorney is often seen as a good-faith effort.
At Fox & Fox, we are ready to represent you at probation violation hearings even if we did not originally represent you at trial. It is just one of the many ways that our firm goes above and beyond to help clients in all stages of the criminal justice process.
