Portland Probation Violation Attorney

Offering a Strong Defense to Alleged Probation and Parole Violations

Generally speaking, probation is preferred as a punishment over prison or jail. With that said, probation still places many restrictions on what a person can and cannot do. The failure to conform to these restrictions can put a person at risk to go to prison. Some probation violation cases can involve substantial prison terms upon revocation. If you have been accused of violating the terms of your probation, you have an urgent need for a lawyer.

At Kohlmetz, Steen & Hanrahan, P.C., our four lawyers have defended many people against alleged probation or parole violations. Probation violations can occur under a number of circumstances such as:

  • Failure to report to a probation officer
  • Failure of a drug test
  • Using alcohol in violations of the probation order
  • Failure to pay restitution or fines
  • Failure to complete community service

One of the more common violations involves further criminal charges. Whatever your case involves, our attorneys can take the approach that is most likely to achieve a favorable resolution in your case.

If you have been accused of a probation violation, it is important to know that you do not have the right to a jury trial. Further, these accusations do not have to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Despite this, if you are found to have violated your probation, the judge can sentence you to the maximum sentence of the charge you previously pled guilty to.

Our attorneys can discuss your circumstances with your probation officer to show you are still a good candidate for probation. If you have been accused of additional criminal charges, we can fight these allegations as well. Every part of our approach will be designed to keep you out of jail or prison and in probation. Our parole violation lawyers also represent individuals accused of violating the terms of their Post-Prison Supervision (PPS).
