Probation Violation

Probation Violation Attorney — Lawrence, KS



Have You Been Arrested While On Probation?

A probation violation is not a matter to be taken lightly. You are on probation because you were convicted of a crime and were fortunate enough to be given some reprieve from your original sentence. If you have violated the terms of your probation or have committed an additional crime, you may be subject to completing your original sentence.

Regardless of what your probation officer may tell you, it is vitally important to have criminal defense representation at your probation violation hearing.

The Probation Violation Hearing

After a person has violated his or her probation, he or she will most likely be arrested and will have to go back to court for a hearing. During the hearing, the judge will review the case and listen to the probation officer’s testimony. If the person is found guilty of violating the terms of his or her probation, he or she may lose the privilege of parole and be forced to serve an enhanced sentence and pay hefty fines.


As your legal representatives, we work to present the details of your case in the best possible light. It is our goal to have the allegations against you dropped or greatly reduced, lessening the impact on your life.
