Riverside Criminal Attorney

Riverside Probation Violations Attorney

Nearly any time you are brought up on charges, you face the possibility of jail time. But if you were a first-time offender, your charge was small, or your lawyer worked very hard in your defense, you were probably able to avoid jail in exchange for a period of probation. This is great news, but it’s not over yet. If you violate one of the terms of your probation, you could end up back in court facing even heavier penalties than before. If this is your case, you need a criminal defense lawyer with skill and experience in probation hearings.

Many infractions may count as a violation of your probation: perhaps you failed a drug test, or skipped a meeting with your probation officer. Maybe you neglected to pay a fine or perform your assigned community service before your allotted time ran out. No matter what happened, our law firm understands that sometimes situations happen that get in the way of even our best intentions.

Our Riverside Criminal Attorney can review your case and advise you of your options

Our Riverside probation violation defense lawyers defend clients in Riverside and surrounding counties against all types of probation violations. We conduct our own investigations of every case we take on, building a strong defense to explain your situation or contest the charges against you. For example, if your illness or the illness of a family member took precedence over a scheduled meeting, we can obtain verification from doctors and hospital staff to corroborate your story. Alternately, we can work with the court to negotiate a reduced sentencing plan that will best benefit you.

Whatever happened in your past, you made it out without jail time. Don’t let a probation violation put you back in a dangerous situation. If you are faced with a probation violation charge, contact us to schedule a free consultation with a Riverside probation violation defense attorney today.
