Violation of Probation/ Community Control Defense Consultations
Defending probation violation cases can be a daunting experience. The low "conscience of the court" level of proof necessary to be found in violation, combined with a probationer who is usually in custody with no bond, makes the need to be prepared extremely important.
Many violation cases that first appear to be open and closed, can in fact, have formidable defenses, These defenses can lead to a variety of satisfactory dispositions including dismissal, reinstatement, modification, time served or even termination.
After working as State or Federal Officers, our investigators have the professional experience and acumen to provide expert opinion and perspective to the case.
Investigators gather information from a variety of sources including, but not limited to, the court file, probation file, probation officer case notes and probationer to present an overview of the case history and current status.
Through comprehensive research, analysis and discussion we are confident that we will be able to provide the best assistance in determining defense strategies and options.
