Rooth Law Group routinely defends clients for Tampa violations of probation (VOP) or community control charges. Please contact our law firm as soon as you learn you are in violation status so that we can intervene on your behalf with your probation officer and address any outstanding warrants that have been issued. The Court will often withdraw a warrant if you are represented by private defense counsel and appear serious about complying with the terms of your probation or otherwise resolving the situation.
As your Tampa probation violation attorney, we will evaluate your case to determine what actions can be done to reinstate you back on probation or possibly even terminate your probation. In addition to working with the prosecutor to allow you to remedy the violation by paying any outstanding fines, costs, or restitution, we may be able to negotiate a creative solution in your defense.
Each client’s case is unique, and such solutions depend on the facts of the case. These remedies include, but are not limited to, undergoing voluntary drug screening, mental or psychological treatment, relocation, completion of a substance abuse treatment program, or obtaining and submitted medical records to the prosecutor.
Our goal is to avoid having you be taken into custody as a result of the violation, and then avoid the imposition of a harsher sentence than the one originally imposed. We want you to achieve the best possible outcome, including termination of your probation if at all possible.
Contact your Tampa probation violation attorneys for a free consultation and we will assist in determining your best course of action.
