There are a variety of ways an experienced criminal defense attorney can help you when you go to circuit court for a probation violation. Defense attorneys have experience cross examining probation officers and other prosecution witnesses, highlighting critical points that are beneficial to your case.
Attorneys can also present documentation of your work history, substance abuse or mental health treatment, and community service in the best light to the judge.
Some jurisdictions even allow defense attorneys to negotiate probation violation cases with prosecutors and make agreed upon recommendations to the judge similar to the way they would with a standard plea agreement.
