If you are on probation or parole, there is a specific set of rules and guidelines that you are expected to follow. Any deviations or violations may be cause to revoke your probation and take further action against you. This could result in jail time and other penalties that you did not initially have to face due to your probation.
If you have violated probation or are concerned that something you are considering may result in your probation or parole being violated, let me help. After working for years as a prosecutor, I now dedicate my career to fighting for the rights of clients dealing with a wide range of criminal law issues, including violation of probation (VOP).

Experienced Probation Violations Defense Lawyer
There can be any number of reasons that your probation is violated. This can include:
- Failed drug tests
- Failure to complete any rehabilitation requirements
- Being kicked out of rehab
- Possessing a weapon when you are not legally allowed
- Committing another crime while on probation
Regardless of the reason why you violated probation, it is important to enlist qualified representation as soon as possible to ensure your rights are protected. Whether I handled your initial case that resulted in the probation, or you are bringing your case to me for the first time, I will use my experience and knowledge to represent you.
In addition to handling cases once you have violated, I can also advise on situations where you may be considering a course of action and are attempting to determine whether or not it would result in a probation violation.
Other Types Of Violations
In addition to handling probation violations for my clients, I also handle other types of pretrial or post-conviction violations that may occur:
- Pretrial intervention (PTI) violations: When an individual is on PTI, there are strict rules that are to be followed, as it is geared toward rehabilitation and future criminal diversion instead of criminal penalties being applied. If the rules are violated, the entire PTI program may be rescinded and you may be sentenced to other punishments.
- Parole violations: If you have been released from prison on parole, you must abide by the terms of your release down to the smallest detail. If you do not, your parole may be violated and you could be sent back to prison.
