Houston Probation Violation Attorney
Hire an Experienced Advocate
If you are being charged with violating the terms of your probation, you must consult an attorney right away. The judge in your case may revoke your probation and impose a long jail sentence without any trial. Probation always comes with a long list of things that you must do, as well as a list of things you are forbidden from doing. Sometimes, a judge may cut you some slack on one or two minor deviations, but after a serious violation or a series of minor ones, you will be needing an attorney.
In most probations, the judge can sentence a violator up to the maximum sentence allowed by Texas law. Being on probation or deferred adjudication leaves you at the will of the judge. Do not go into court expecting leniency or automatically getting a second chance. You must be represented by a lawyer who has been in front your judge many times over the years and will know how to best avoid the wrath of an upset judge.
