There are multiple reasons that people run into problems with their probation, and many of them are beyond their control. If you have been accused of violating your probation, my law firm — The Law Office of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A. — can help you to either fight the violation or attempt to reinstate your probation.
Fighting Allegations Of A Probation Violation
I represent people throughout Florida in probation matters:
- Probation violations: If you are accused of violating your probation, you may still get up to the maximum sentence you were facing. It is extremely important to work with an attorney who fights hard to protect your rights.
- Early termination of probation: Under Florida law, you may be eligible for early termination of probation after you have reached the halfway point in your probation. I can guide you through the process.
- Technical violations: You can be charged with violating your probation if you have been found to violate a probation-related rule, e.g., you changed your address without notifying your probation officer. An experienced attorney can often help you in this situation. You should know, for example, that successfully prosecuting this type of violation requires that the state prove the violation was both willful and substantial.
- Committing a new crime while on probation: If you commit a new crime while you are on probation (a new law violation) — even if it is a misdemeanor or a criminal traffic offense — it is important to contact an attorney immediately. If you do not, a conviction can weigh heavily on your probation, since a double penalty attaches in the sense that the new charge will result in both a violation of your probation and constitute a new and independent charge by itself. I can help.
At The Law Office of Gustavo E. Frances, P.A., I offer reasonable prices for parole violation matters. I understand that sometimes a payment plan may be necessary, and I work with you to set up a plan you can afford. If needed, I also accept most major credit cards. And, initial consultations are always free.
Probation Violation? Take Action.
If you have been arrested on a probation violation, take action. Do not communicate further with any detectives, police, states attorneys or other government personnel without having an experienced attorney beside you. It is important to understand that anything you say to law enforcement after being arrested can become evidence that will potentially be used against you.
