Olathe Probation Violation Lawyer

Worried about a probation violation?

Being on probation and meeting all of the requirements can be difficult. Sometimes a probation officer may seem difficult to work with. Maybe something you didn't think was important turns out to be very serious in the eyes of your probation officer. If your probation officer has decided you have violated your probation, or the prosecutor has filed a motion to revoke your probation, you need the help of an experienced Olathe criminal defense lawyer. My firm has been helping individuals in Johnson County and throughout Kansas with probation violations for many years.

Probation Violation Lawyer in Olathe

When a judge decides to suspend an individual's sentence and allows probation instead, there will be certain terms set which must be fulfilled by the individual, which can include;

  • Restitution which must be paid,
  • avoiding use of controlled substances (drugs), or not drinking alcohol,
  • a specified amount of community service to be completed,
  • no new violation of the law,
  • keeping all appointments with your supervisory officer
  • and more

In my years of practicing as a probation violation lawyer, I have seen that every violation has unique circumstances and reasons behind it. It is important to show the judge that his or her faith in you wasn't misplaced in allowing you probation. When we meet, I will advise you to immediately start following all of the rules, keeping all appointments, and work hard to complete any community service or paying any outstanding restitution. Showing the prosecutor and the judge that you are responsible and making a determined effort will go a long way to convincing them that revoking your suspension would not be just in your case.
