York Probation Violation Attorney
Were you accused of violating the terms of your probation?
At Ilkhanoff & Silverstein we have a combined 30 years of experience in obtaining successful conclusions to legal matters on behalf of our clients. Our attorneys and support staff work diligently to provide you with effective legal representation. Our experience may be of great benefit if you are accused of violating the terms of your probation or have been incarcerated for a violation and are waiting for a hearing before the judge.
A person accused of violating probation may face the same punishment they could have received when they were originally accused of the crime, including the stiff penalties for felony crimes. It won't be relevant that you took a plea on your original charges or weren't guilty of the crime. The only thing that will be viewed by the judge is whether or not the prosecution can show that you violated your probation. The end result can be you spending time in jail. Commonly, probation officers and judges are not easily swayed by the excuses or reasons that a defendant gives. It is important, therefore, to utilize a trusted York criminal defense attorney to aggressively pursue a positive resolution to accusations of parole violations.
