Probation Violations

The criminal defense attorneys at KLG have been defending against allegations lodged by probation departments throughout Massachusetts for decades, in both the District and Superior Courts. When a probation officer issues an initial notice of an alleged probation violation, you need an experienced litigator at your side. You need an attorney who knows how to conduct a hearing: how to cross examine a probation officer, how to challenge technical violations, and how to present evidence that proves that you did not violate your conditions of probation. Whether you have suspended time or are on straight-probation, you need a seasoned attorney that can make sure the results of your hearing are either that no violation is found or that the judge understands the mitigating circumstances while considering sentencing options.

At a probation violation hearing a judge can do one of four things:

  1. find a violation and keep the conditions of probation the same;
  2. find a violation and change the conditions of probation and/or the end date of probation;
  3. find a violation, revoke probation, and sentence the probationer to an amount of committed time authorized by the charging statute; or
  4. not find a violation.

Attorneys at KLG have navigated these hearings many times, successfully securing results such as "No Violation Found" by judges in courts throughout the state. No matter how high or low the stakes, you deserve the confidence of knowing that you have an experienced and aggressive litigator by your side who is not afraid to fight probation departments for your liberty.

“Koufman Law Group, LLC retained me as an expert in a medical case. They effectively and thoroughly prepared for trial by, for instance, developing a good working knowledge of the content of my testimony. They also helped me determine the best manner by which I presented my expert testimony, and at trial, they were relaxed but very effective before the jury. “ Peter M.
