Probation Parole Violations Attorney


Probation & Parole Violation Lawyer Serving Central & South Central PA

It can be difficult when you have been convicted of a crime and subjected to the criminal consequences of jail, fines, court costs, and conditions of probation or parole. The experience becomes more difficult when you are accused of violating the conditions of your probation or parole. Now, you are looking at a revocation or violation hearing where you face the prospect of being re-sentenced by a judge for the alleged violations of the conditions of your supervision.

If you or someone you care about is facing a probation or parole violation, you need PA Criminal Defense Attorney who understands the ins-and-outs of the revocation process and can help you through this difficult undertaking. Our Criminal Defense Lawyer understands a lot is on the line when you face a probation or parole violation – your freedom, your employment, and your life as you know it are all on the line…again.

Sometimes Good Things Go Wrong

When good goes wrong, you need someone on your side that understands and maintains the ability to place the situation into the proper perspective. Our Probation/Parole Violation Attorney appreciates that many people work hard at strictly complying with the conditions of their supervision and slip-ups or mistakes happen.

In these instances, it is important to make sure that the judge is provided the proper context for the mistake or violation. There is a difference between an excuse and an explanation. We understand how to meaningfully distinguish one from the other in order to persuasively communicate with the court on your behalf.

The Human Component

We recognize that the basis for a violation often is triggered by a human element. For example, there may be an underlying drug and alcohol dependency or mental health issue that has not been adequately identified or accounted for. Where appropriate, we will work to restore your life and freedom through rehabilitative measures.

A rehabilitative component to any sentence places you in a better position to have a meaningful life and continue to be a productive member of society. It is important that placing you in a position to make positive contributions to the community through employment or otherwise is not lost in the process. If realized, it is win-win for everyone, which is the result the court should be looking for.

Our Probation/Parole Violation Lawyer recognizes the importance of not only understanding you as a person but, also, having an appreciation for the goals of the probation/parole officer, prosecutor, and judge. Understanding the goals of the other parties puts us in a position to make their objectives consistent with your own.
