Violation of Probation Legal Help in Baltimore and Annapolis
A "Serious Trial Lawyer" Fighting for Clients' Rights Since 1992
The courts generally consider probation to be a light sentence when contrasted with jail and prison time. When probation is violated, judges and parole officers are often intolerant of the reasons and excuses and unwilling to grant further leniency.
With experienced legal help, people accused of violating probation can often succeed in having their probation reinstated and avoid incarceration. I am attorney Jim Crawford and I have helped hundreds of clients manage their probation and parole violations. Have you been accused of violating your probation by:
- Leaving a geographical area
- Failure to report to work
- Changing your job or home without permission
- Failing to perform community service
- Committing a drug or alcohol infringement
- Failing a drug test
- Failing to report to your probation or parole officer
- Committing a crime or associating with a known criminal
Perhaps there was a mix up and the drugs didn't belong to you. Or perhaps you meant to meet with your parole officer but were understandably detained. Whatever the reason, I will work to help you avoid jail time and have your probation reinstated. My track record includes numerous successful bids for the dismissal of parole and probation violations.
