Probation/Violations

Once you’re put on probation, you are scrutinized by a probation officer. Your life is essentially under a microscope and everything counts. There are lists of classes and conditions that you must do in a timely manner, including payment plans, in order to complete the punishment for the offense and stay out of jail. When the probation office and ultimately the State of Texas through a District Attorney’s Office believe you haven’t done what you’re supposed to, you can get into trouble. The ability to fight the original charge is gone, so you can’t go backwards, but you do have a right to a hearing on whether or not you really violated any of the terms or conditions of your probation. The allegations that are found in the Motion to Revoke or Motion to Adjudicate Guilt are subject to review by a Judge. Lloyd Law Firm frequently assists clients facing jail or prison time, based on the alleged violations of probation. We have successfully fought to keep our clients on probation, too. Sometimes, the terms are tweaked or modified to accommodate a change in lifestyle of our clients. Sometimes, we fight the District Attorney’s Office because they are not offering a good solution or deal. It is important to have an attorney review the allegations in order to make a proper decision when facing the consequence of conviction or incarceration.
