Salmu Law offers sound legal advice and skilled defense representation to clients facing a parole or probation violation for any reason, including:

  • Failed urinalysis or “dirty UA”
  • Failure to report to your parole or probation officer (PO)
  • Felon in possession of a firearm
  • Failure to maintain employment or residence
  • Subsequent criminal charges such as DUI or drug possession

Depending upon the nature of your alleged probation violation, resolving the issue can be as straightforward as presenting a compelling argument to your probation officer and judge as to why revoking your probation is not the appropriate action. In many cases, our goal is not only to have probation reinstated, but to advocate for the early termination of probation in order to avoid violation problems in the future.

Our extensive experience in both the state and federal criminal court system enables us to provide you with honest answers and reliable guidance so that you can make an informed decision as to how to proceed. We have successfully defended clients facing multiple probation violations.

We will be with you at every stage of the process. If it is necessary to surrender to the courts, we can negotiate a time and place that minimizes the disruption to your family and job.
