Whether you’re on state or federal probation, you may have the possibility to work out any misunderstandings.

Defending Charges Of Probation Violation
If you are on probation, you must adhere to a variety of conditions. The state must prove that you violated the terms of your probation with “clear and convincing evidence” – a lower standard than “beyond a reasonable doubt.” Sometimes, the state will drop the probation violation charge after attorney Jackson has spoken with them about his clients’ alleged violations.
If the court finds you to be in violation of the terms of your probation, it can impose serious penalties on you. These penalties may include:
- Revocation of your probation
- The addition of a new probation condition
