New Charges · Violating Terms · Failure To Appear In Court
We can help no matter what you supposedly did to violate your probation:
- Committing a crime
- Failing a urine test for drugs or alcohol
- Disobeying terms of probation (stay out of bars, e.g.)
- Quitting a drug/alcohol treatment program
- Not fulfilling community service
- Not paying fines and fees
- Not reporting to your probation officer
- Not showing up for court appearances
The most common violation is committing a new crime. If you are convicted of the new offense and your probation is revoked, the court may impose the original jail sentence plus additional jail time. In fact, you can be sent to jail or prison before the offense is formally charged. That is why it is critical to talk to a lawyer right away.

— If you are accused of a new crime, we will ask the court to postpone the probation revocation hearing until the new offense is adjudicated. We will do everything we can to get the new charges dismissed or downgraded. In many cases, we can negotiate a package deal on the new charge and the probation to limit the punishment.
— If you are accused of violating the terms of probation, we will try to get you back into the good graces of the court to earn a second chance. While waiting for your revocation hearing, it may help to pay fines, submit to tests and otherwise show the court you are making an effort. We have also helped clients get into inpatient treatment programs as an alternative to jail.
