You need an experienced defense attorney with experience handling violation of probation and getting early termination of probation for good behavior.

Thomas C. Grajek, Attorney at Law is a top rated lawyer with offices in Lakeland, Tampa, and Lutz, Florida. We accept clients charged with a crime or in violation of probation in Polk County, Pasco County, Hillsborough County and surrounding areas. Call today and let me work to keep you out of prison.

What You Should Know About Violation of Probation in Florida

Unlike most arrests, when you are arrested for violating your probation or community control, you are not entitled to a bond, although the judge may give you a bond. That makes it important to get your case resolved as quickly as possible with the best result for you.

Even though your court date may be more than a month away, that does not mean I can not speed up the process for you. I can contact the prosecutor and work towards resolving your case and getting you released from jail.We can also add your case onto the court docket weeks sooner and resolve your case. I handle both felony and misdemeanor VOP cases. I urge you to hire a probation violation lawyer if you have violated the terms of probation and are facing probation revocation, and I hop you call my office to schedule a free consultation.

Why You Need an Attorney for a Probation Violation

Many people on probation know they have a warrant outstanding for violating their probation. They are afraid of reporting to their probation officer for fear of being arrested and taken into custody. Unfortunately, that cause them more problems because it adds additional grounds to the violation affidavit.

Most people with an outstanding warrant want me to contact the prosecutor and work out their case. However, the prosecutor usually will not speak to your violation of probation attorney until you have been booked into the jail on the VOP. Some counties allow you to turn yourself into the court and you can ask for a bond at that time. Your time in jail is limited to being booked into the jail and the time necessary to process your bond, but that is rare.

Usually, the best way to handle the situation, is to hire an experienced criminal lawyer like me, then turn yourself into the jail and your legal counsel can appear with you in court the next day at your first appearance and request a bond or try and resolve your case at that time.

This way you spend the least amount of time in jail.

Defending Violations of Probation

There are many defenses to Violation of Probation cases. The prosecutor has to prove that your violation was willful and substantial violation of the terms of your probation. You are also entitled to file Motions to Suppress or Dismiss in your VOP case. As a violation of probation attorney with years and vast experience handling VOP cases, I can try your hearing if necessary.

There are many ways and options available to resolve your case. There are many alternatives less restrictive than jail or prison that you may be eligible for:

Alternatives to Jail or Prison Time

  • house arrest
  • community control
  • in-patient treatment program for drugs or psychological issues
  • GPS monitoring
  • weekends at the jail
  • weekend work release

It is important to have an experienced probation violation attorney who knows the ins and outs of the criminal justice system. Many times I can protect your Withhold of Adjudication by negotiating with the prosecutor to MODIFY and REINSTATE your probation so that you are not Adjudicated Guilty and convicted of a crime. This way you stay eligible to seal your record!

Can I Get Early Termination of Probation?

If you are you currently on probation, community control, or house arrest you may be eligible to terminate your probation early! Often, I can get the motion filed and have your probation terminated within a days if you qualify for an early termination of your probation.

How To Get Off Probation Early In Florida

  • Don’t get a Violation of Probation.
  • Don’t pay the cost of supervision if you don’t have to.
  • Call me so that I can file a Motion to Terminate your Probation Early.

Thomas Grajek is a great lawyer

I have just moved to the Tampa area. I was intoduced to Tom after being arrested for a DUI. Within minutes of being bonded out Tom came to my place of employment with all needed documents to "get the ball rolling". He always kept me informed on my case and when the time came for my hearing, I plead guilty to wreckless and had no fines and very little commuity service. Thomas Grajek is a great attorney and I feel he would be a valuable assett in anyone's defense.
