If you find yourself in court because of a probation violation, we can help. Generally, a probation violation occurs when a probationer violates one or more of the terms or conditions of probation. Examples of violations include failing a drug test, failing to report as directed, failing to complete community service, failing to complete required classes, and sometimes for failing to pay fees or other related costs. When this occurs, a warrant for your arrest is issued. You are expected to then answer to your judge. You will be permitted a hearing on the matter – your attorney will attempt to lessen the impact of your violation. In some cases, you may even contest the violations. Your attorney will attempt to have your probation reinstated, sometimes with an extension or other sanction.
