Probation Violation Defense Lawyer

Probation violations are nothing to treat lightly. If you are convicted of violating the terms of your probation, the court may choose to enforce the full penalties of the original crime, sending you to prison, for instance, for the entire length of the sentence.

Plus, the prosecution does not have to prove this charge beyond reasonable doubt like it does for other crimes. For the very best chance of avoiding a very negative outcome, it is important to engage the help of an accomplished Tennessee probation violations attorney.

Rob McKinney is just such a lawyer. He holds the highest peer review rating (AV Preeminent*) from Martindale-Hubbell and can challenge the charges against you at the court hearing. In cases where the defendant has little to no prior criminal history and the probation violation was a minor technical infraction, he can sometimes get the charge dismissed altogether.
