Portland Probation Violation Attorney

Probation violations can stem from a variety of actions, but the most common is failure to attend a court-ordered treatment for alcohol, sex or drugs. It may also stem from a financial situation when someone hasn't been able to pay court fines, fees or restitution, or from failing to pay child support or another court-imposed payment.

Many people don't realize that if they try to work with the probation officer and the court, it may help them out of a probation violation. It's possible that it will even fend off a probation violation allegation from ever coming into effect.

If you find yourself in this situation, it's important to act decisively.

When people facing probation violation issues partner with me as their Portland criminal defense lawyer, I'm able to put together a strong case and present it to the court so that it understands that my client is taking his or her responsibilities seriously.

In my 15-plus years of criminal practice as an attorney, I've come to understand that this is the strongest approach to these charges; it has had substantial success in helping clients avoid fines and jail time.

Because I put an utmost premium on looking for creative solutions for criminal charges and work one-on-one to establish a personal connection with clients, I have several tools at my disposal to do everything possible to get a parole violation dismissed.
