Probation Violation Concerns and Consequences
If you are on probation in Oregon and have been accused of committing a new crime or violating the terms of your probation, you may be on very thin ice. Each step you take can make the difference between potential incarceration and loss of privileges, or life continuing on as normal. Our law firm has experience with the following:
- Proactive negotiations to help prevent prison time or loss of privileges such as a driver's license
- Behind the scenes counseling referrals for clients and/or family members as needed
- Acting as an intermediary with probation officers
- Skillful interaction with prosecutors about new criminal charges
- Protecting the client's opportunity to accomplish expungement (wiping a criminal record clean) at a later date
- Frequent client communication and status reports regarding the case and any developments
