Are You Facing New Criminal Charges While on Probation in Chelan or Douglas County?
Many new charges – or even infractions (such as driving without insurance) – will trigger probation violations for those who have prior criminal convictions. Depending upon the circumstances of your case, you could face receiving a minimum of 30 days in jail, up to a year of previously suspended jail time or an extension of your probation. In some instances, you may also be forced to pay suspended fines on your prior conviction or return to jail and serve the full term of your original sentence.
When you meet with me, I will discuss the impact of new charges on your probation case. I will inform you of your rights and options under the law, giving you the information necessary to make smart legal decisions. My knowledge of the law is comprehensive, and my advocacy is ardent.
Put an Experienced Attorney on Your Side
It is often surprising for many people to learn that penalties for probation violations can exceed those for a new criminal conviction. They may secure counsel to defend a new charge, but neglect to retain a lawyer for a probation hearing.
When you engage my services, I will do my utmost to minimize the penalties you face. As a long-time Wenatchee probation violation attorney, I know how to coordinate with your defense counsel and work with prosecutors and probation officers to garner the best possible recommendation to the court.
