Defense Against Probation Violation Charges
A violation of your probation is essentially a breach of contract with the court. If you are not holding up your end of the bargain, a judge can terminate your probation and execute the original jail sentence or other deferred punishment.
If you have been arrested or notified about a probation violation, turn to David G. Moore, Attorney at Law. Our team can help you get back in the good graces of the court and get back on track with your programs to stay out of trouble with the law. Our lawyers regularly handle probation matters in Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and throughout southwest Michigan. Contact us online for a free consultation.
Representation For A Wide Range Of Probation Offenders
In our work as defense attorneys, we have represented juveniles, college students and adults in probation violation hearings. We are familiar with all the scenarios in which people must appear in court to answer for:
- Failing a drug or alcohol screening
- Failure to report to the probation officer
- Leaving the county or state without permission
- Prohibited activities (entering a bar, hanging out with certain people)
- Failure to complete counseling or treatment
- Failure to pay fines and court costs
- New criminal offenses
We can help you arrange a hearing and avoid arrest if you have a bench warrant for a violation. We can help you attend to any unfinished business to come into compliance with the terms of probation. We also help clients take proactive steps such as enrolling in classes or treatment, making restitution or other ways to signal to the court that the probation violation was a setback and that you are serious about getting back on track.
