Probation & Community Control Violations

We have extensive experience in dealing with Probation and CC (community control) violations throughout the state of Florida. Sometimes we can avoid your arrest on a warrant for a violation of probation. We can set up a court date for you and assist you with turning yourself in if this is necessary to deal with the warrant.

On numerous occasions we have had violations of probation dismissed and had clients reinstated back onto their probation despite having violated their probation.

We also file motions to convert community control to probation, motions to modify probation conditions, and motions to early terminate probation. We have handled hundreds of these matters.

Handling Probation Violations Quickly

Proactively dealing with a probation violation can be very beneficial and can avoid unnecessarily sitting in jail waiting for a court date.  Proactively addressing the upcoming violation of probation can also result in a better outcome for you when we go to court to resolve the violation.  Even if you have to go to jail before your court date, we can be better prepared when we go in front of the judge if you have our advice on what to accomplish before an arrest warrant is served on you for violating your probation.


Having a Successful Trial Lawyer on Your Side

Additionally, it is very important to have a successful trial lawyer because sometimes the sole basis for a violation of probation is a new charge. Sometimes, successful defense of a new charge can lead to dismissal of violation of probation.

You should understand that violations of probations are decided under a preponderance of the evidence standard at an evidentiary hearing held by a judge. Because of my experience, I am able to understand the different legal requirements in successfully defending both the violation of probation and some new cases which can be the basis of violation of probation.
