Salt Lake City DUI Probation Violations
Experienced Probation Violations Defense Attorney
If you have been convicted of a DUI, the court may enter a number of orders that you are required to follow as part of your sentence. These orders may include a set number of community service hours, a requirement to abstain from drugs or alcohol, or enrollment in a drug treatment program. Unfortunately, addiction is a chronic disease and sometimes people do violate their probation. Violation of the terms of probation may lead to a lengthy jail sentence. That is why it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side.
Fighting for a Second Chance
People may violate the terms of their probation for a variety of reasons, and a violation does not have to involve a DUI. People may not take the terms of their probation seriously or they become so busy that they neglect to show up for their required community service or drug testing. In severe cases, they may have a crippling drug addiction that they are having difficulty beating.
Regardless of your situation, as an experienced Salt Lake City DUI defense attorney, I will fight diligently on your behalf to show the court that you are working to amend your mistakes. If you are suffering from drug or alcohol addiction, I can help you get the counseling and treatment you need. Steps such as these will help show the court that you are serious about getting help and do not deserve prison time.
Seasoned Representation for Repeat Offenders
When you are charged with a Repeat DUI offense, you face the threat of increased penalties. These penalties are compounded if the DUI charge also results in a probation violation stemming from an earlier DUI. I will work with you to help convince the judge that you deserve another chance and will do everything I can to help you avoid a lengthy prison sentence.
