Charged With Violating Probation In The Miami Area?

Probation violations are handled differently than other types of criminal offenses. The burden of proof is much lighter for the prosecutor, and the hearings happen much faster, with little time for discovery. A client needs an experienced criminal defense lawyer to protect his interests in this situation.

Work With A Former Prosecutor And Law Professor

Probation violation lawyer Russell Spatz offers unique experience that many other Florida attorneys cannot. He not only has experience as a prosecutor, but he is also a former assistant state attorney in Miami-Dade County, and he is an adjunct professor. Having the respect of the judge who will determine the outcome of a case is a major advantage for his clients.

What Are The Consequences Of A Probation Violation?

A probation violation can have immediate and lasting effects on your freedom and livelihood that you may not anticipate. Some of the consequences may include:

  • Being held in jail or prison time while your case is resolved
  • Being sentenced to jail or prison for the violation
  • Being ordered to pay expensive fines and/or restitution

Attorney Russell Spatz has more than 40 years of experience as both a prosecutor and criminal defense lawyer. His unique perspective allows him to view a case from all angles. His ability to anticipate a prosecutor’s moves is invaluable to his clients.
