Florida Violation Of Probation Lawyer
Probation is a contract with the Court. In exchange for a stayed sentence or lesser punishment, you agreed to stay out of trouble and follow certain rules. If you are accused of violating the terms of probation, a warrant may be issued for your arrest and the judge has the power to revoke your probation and make you serve the original sentence.
The judge also has the power to give you one more chance. That’s where Ferrer Shane, PL, comes in. Our criminal law attorneys can intervene to avoid an arrest if you have not already been picked up. We can represent you at your violation of probation (V.O.P.) hearing to convince the judge to continue your probation and not punish you just yet.
We handle V.O.P. hearings in Miami-Dade County and surrounding jurisdictions of South Florida. Contact us today for a free initial consultation.
Violation of Probation (V.O.P.)
We have handled every type of probation violation:
- New criminal offense
- Failed drug test
- Failure to pay fines and court fees
- Failure to complete classes, treatment or community service
- Failure to report to your probation officer
Our goal is to avoid imposition of your jail sentence and other stayed penalties from the original charges. To get back in the good graces of the judge, we need to show that your violation was a setback or an isolated mistake, and that you are serious about getting your life on track.
Prior to your V.O.P. hearing date, we can help you take steps to improve your position, such as making contact with your probation officer, submitting clean urine samples, paying off outstanding fines or entering/re-entering treatment. We will review the terms of your probation and present to the judge all evidence of what you are doing right to comply with the court.
New charges are trickier to overcome. We are aggressive in trying to get those charges dismissed or reduced so that they do result in revocation of your probation.
We don’t want this episode to ruin your future. Our experienced lawyers work hard to get you another chance at probation. Call us at 305-262-2728 or 888-609-5947 to discuss your case.
