Probation violations in Arizona usually come with serious penalties. If you violated your probation agreement, even if you didn’t realize what you did was a violation, you may be facing jail time, additional fines, more community service hours, or a longer probation period.
Hiring an experienced Phoenix criminal attorney means that your rights are protected and you are armed with the legal knowledge you need to avoid or reduce these penalties. In many cases, your lawyer can help you explain to the court why you violated probation, which means you may be able to see your original probation agreement reinstated, or you may be able to avoid time in jail with a modification of your probation agreement.
Additionally, an experienced Phoenix criminal lawyer can help you prepare for the probation hearing, gather character references, communicate with the court and the probation officer, and make sure all the details are handled appropriately within required time limits to give you the best chance for the best outcome.
