Probation Violation Attorney in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
In some ways, probation can be both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, you get to remain out of jail or prison and can live somewhere that is more comfortable to you. While there may be some limitations, you are able to live your life more freely. But...you are still under the strict supervision of the courts and any mishaps can result in harsh consequences.
If you find yourself in a position where you have been accused of violating the terms and conditions of your probation,, it is of the utmost importance to know your rights.
