Maryland Parole Violation Attorney
Probation is a contract with the court. You avoid jail and perhaps keep a conviction off your record in exchange for following specific rules. We can help no matter why you are called back before the judge:
- An arrest for a new crime
- Testing positive for drugs or alcohol
- Failure to report to your probation agent
- Not completing treatment or classes
- Failing to pay fines or perform community service
We Need to Be Ahead of the Game
The judge will give a lot of weight to what your probation agent recommends. We will talk to your agent to discuss not only the violation, but what you’ve been doing right and what you still need to do to meet the terms of probation.
At your probation revocation hearing, we can then show the judge what steps you’ve taken to get back on track. Our goal is for the court to continue your probation. If the judge decides to revoke your probation, Mr. Kadish will argue mitigating reasons so that you are not given the full jail sentence.
