If you find yourself in violation status, it is important to seek the advise and counsel of an experienced Seminole County Violation of Probation Attorney who can assist you in avoiding a lengthy jail or prison sentence.

Violation of Probation Defense
Before the Court can find that you violated your Probation, you are entitled to a hearing before a Judge to determine whether the alleged violation was willful and substantial. Some typical defenses for Violations of Probation include:
Was the alleged violation willful and substantial?
If the violation is based on a new law offense, can the State establish the elements of the new offense?
If the violation was for failing to pay costs, were you under a financial hardship at the time making it impossible to pay costs?
If you failed to report to probation, was there a reasonable excuse?
These are only a number of the potential defenses that our office will explore in an effort to get your Violation dismissed and get you back on Probation.
