Probation Violations


Sarasota Parole Violation Attorney

If you face charges for violating the terms of probation or parole, you want an experienced and aggressive lawyer to protect your rights. The dismissal of any charges against you can result in the dismissal of charges of violating probation or parole. You want an assertive attorney who will work hard to get an acquittal.

At the Law Office of Eric Reisinger, we know how the state prepares and argues criminal cases. Before opening our criminal defense practice, Eric Reisinger was a prosecutor at the State Attorney’s Office. We understand how the state’s attorneys think, and can quickly evaluate the evidence they have against you to determine the strength of their case. We take an aggressive approach on behalf of our clients, carefully investigating all the facts and circumstances of your arrest to determine whether your rights have been violated.

Our Florida Probation Violation Defense Practice

We offer comprehensive representation to people who have been charged with violating the terms of probation or parole. We handle cases involving:

  • Parolees or people on probation who have been arrested again (picked up for a new law violation)
  • Individuals who test positive for drugs in violation of the terms of parole or probation (so-called “dirty urine” tests)
  • Failure to report to a parole or probation officer as required
  • Failure to appear on a bench warrant

It is critical to understand that simply being arrested for a new offense is not a violation of probation — you must be convicted. Our goal will always be to get an acquittal on the new charge, so that it no longer is considered a violation of your probation.

When you have been charged with violating the terms of parole or probation, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances leading to your arrest. We will carefully review whether police had probable cause to make any search or seizure, and verify that all evidence was properly obtained.
