Speak with a proven Arlington County Probation Violation Attorney
At the Flynn Law Firm, we recognize how serious probation violations are, and the threat that they present you and your livelihood, especially in Virginia. Violating the terms of one’s probation often presents the same, if not worse consequences, in front of a judge than the underlying charge. The first time you were sentenced, the Judge may have “given you a break,” and suspended a significant portion of your sentence. But now that you have been accused of a probation violation, you may be looking at a harsher outcome than the first time around! You need a proven Arlington County Probation Violation Attorney to fight for you!
Probation Violations can come about through deliberate action, inaction or many times it can arise from a mistake or misunderstanding. Examples of actions that can trigger a probation violation include: positive urine screens, commission of a new crime or interacting with someone or someplace that the Court prohibited. In the same manner, inaction can be the source of a probation violation in situations where you have failed to maintain contact with your probation officer, or have moved without notice to the Probation Officer. Many times it is a misunderstanding that can be cleared up fairly quickly, and others require lots of hard work and advocacy to convince a judge to not do what they think they want to do.
