Solid Representation is Critical
At the stage of being charged with probation or parole violation, solid legal representation is key. An individual could face the original penalties for the original crime committed and other penalties. These penalties are generally determined by the severity of the violation.
An individual may be charged with parole or probation violation based on a number of factors:
- Failure to pay required fines
- Missing a court appearance
- Failure to abide by rules of probation or parole
- Being arrested
Our attorneys have a thorough understanding of Illinois sentencing practices. We work with clients to explore all avenues in avoiding further penalties imposed during the probation revocation hearing.
Our lawyers closely examine all probation violation charges, considering the following factors:
- What is the allegation?
- Is this a new, substantive offense?
- Is this a new crime?
- Has the client paid his/her fines?
- Has the client missed any probation or parole appointments?
- What is the disposition of this offense?
Our attorneys understand what is at stake for those accused of probation violation. We know that avoiding jail, extended probation and other severe penalties is your number one priority, and we will work diligently and seek to protect your rights by seeking acquittal and negotiating sentences.
