If you or a loved one has been charged with violating the terms of probation or parole, you need a skilled criminal defense attorney on your side. This is a complicated area of the law, because the burden of proof is lower to prove probation violation than to convict you of other criminal charges.
HELPING CLIENTS WITH PROBATION OR PAROLE MATTERS
Whether you have been accused of violating probation for failing a drug test, being unable to find or keep a job or allegedly committing another crime, we are ready to fight for you.
The terms of probation vary significantly in misdemeanor and felony cases. We are committed to carefully understanding your specific situation and, based on that unique scenario, providing you with the best defense possible.Contact us today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your unique situation with probation violation attorneys in Raleigh, North Carolina.
PROTECTING CLIENTS FACING PROBATION VIOLATIONS
Attorney Michelle Sparrow started the Sparrow Law Firm with the goal of providing each client the ample time, compassion, understanding and resources he or she needs. A key part of our hands-on approach involves answering clients’ questions in plain English, not throwing around legal jargon that is nearly impossible to understand. We are also committed to keeping clients informed of the legal process for probation violations/parole violations, which includes the right to a trial before a judge, but not one before a jury. Depending on your circumstances, the judge could decide to:
- Modify your probation/parole, adding additional or more restrictive terms
- Continue you on probation/parole with no added provisions
- Terminate your probation/parole successfully
- Terminate your probation/parole unsuccessfully
- Add additional terms to your probation/parole
We work hard to have clients enrolled in alcohol or drug awareness programs or anger management courses as well as getting them connected with job placement organizations while their probation violation case is pending. We will take whatever actions legally necessary to improve your standing with the court. Proactive steps are invaluable in presenting clients in the best way possible. This presentation can have a tremendous impact on having penalties reduced.
