We are Greg Hill & Associates. If you or a family member have questions you need answered or issues you need resolved concerning a violation of probation, we can help you.
We have had a great deal of success in resolving probation violation cases in Los Angeles, Ventura, Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange and San Diego Counties.
We strive to have the client reinstated on probation or the jail/prison sentence minimized without a probation violation hearing, as the burden of proof to find a violation is low.
Most commonly, the client is arrested for a new violation which involves its own separate exposure, as well as exposure as a probation violation.
Sometimes, the probation violation is out of a separate courthouse, so coordinating the two cases to avoid duplicative or redundant punishment is vital. Often, when the two cases are out of different courthouses, we will seek to transfer the new case to the courthouse handling the probation violation, or visa versa to the courthouse handling the new violation. Our experience with the two courthouses and the two prosecutors helps us make this decision.
If you or a family member have questions or concerns regarding bail and release, please call us today for a free 45 minute consultation. (310) 782-2500.
|Facts About Probation Violations|
If a probationer on felony or misdemeanor probation has failed to complete a condition of probation, he faces substantial jail or prison time. It is therefore critical that you have an experienced criminal defense attorney at your side.
Other times, a probation violation arises from the client’s failure to obey all laws because the client is arrested on a new offense. In such circumstances, our office must defend the client on two fronts, both as to violating probation and on the new offense. If the new offense ends in dismissal, the probation violation is resolved as well. Therefore, it is extremely important to hire an experienced criminal defense attorney on the new offense to ensure your best chances of having the probation violation resolved by dismissal.
