What constitutes a probation violation?

Often times, an accusation of violating your probation is a misunderstanding or a simple accident on the part of the accused with no intention of violating probation. Our firm can argue you did not purposely violate probation.

Technical violations of probation can include:

  • Non-payment of fines
  • Curfew violations
  • Absconding
  • Failed drug tests
  • Being out of residence
  • Failure to report to a probation officer
  • Changes to a residential address without permission

Those found guilty of violating probation will most likely receive added conditions to their probation terms. The probation period can be extended or revoked and the offender can face jail time.

    Mr. Casanova was very helpful. I could tell he wasn't money hungry. Most common folks are not fortunate to have a huge savings. The information he gave me was very accurate after researching. He easily could have taken advantage of a mother who has never experienced anything with the law if wanted to. When I asked about cost he simply said if your not satisfied with a public defender call me back. I felt he was sincere and honest in his answers. I think my gut is on point and will contact his office if I'm in need.

    “It's clear to me that he doesn't practice law for the prestige of doing so but for the satisfaction he gets by hearing how much he's made a positive impact in peoples lives.”
    Mr. Casanova has been giving me solid counsel for 2 1/2 years. Each time I've spoken to him his feedback has always made a positive impact on my life. It's clear to me that one of his missions in life is to help those who need his advice. Most of us have a passion that provides us with satisfaction. It's clear to me that he doesn't practice law for the prestige of doing so but for the satisfaction he gets by hearing how much he's made a positive impact in peoples lives.

    Mr. Casanova and the staff in his office handle everything for your case and do so in a friendly professional manner. The work Mr. Casanova did for my case was outstanding with results far better than I could have hoped for. If I ever find myself in trouble again, there will be no research needed, I will IMMEDIATELY call Mr. Casanova's office. I suggest if you find yourself needing legal representation, you do the same.

    “He is the consummate professional and does everything first class.”
    Steve Casanova is an exceptional trial lawyer. He is smart, talented, quick on his feet and knows how to talk to a jury. He is the consummate professional and does everything first class. He knows the law, is innovative in his approach and his legal research is second to none. He is worth every penny. The way I look at it is you can either have a cheap lawyer or a great lawyer--after all if you needed brain surgery would you hire the cheapest brain surgeon you can find or would you hire the best. Hire Steve--hire the best!

    “I wish this comment box was larger, because there simply is not enough room for all the good I have to say about this man. Simply the BEST.”
    I have had extensive experience with criminal defense attorneys (from $1,000 attorneys all the way up to the $100,000 attorneys) and can attest that Mr. Casanova is the best in town. He and his staff are top-notch. Mr. Casanova will hold your hand when you need it, but "tell you how it is!" It's rare to find such an honest attorney, especially one who is so talented. He is not a "bottom dollar" attorney, but his pricing is more fair than anyone in town, and he will not take advantage of you in your time of need like most attorneys in Brevard. He is highly respected by the state attorney's office, and is able to negotiate favorable resolutions, but this guy is darn-sure ready to go the distance when you have a strong case. I have sought his expert guidance numerous times, referred him to friends and acquaintances, and even my own family members. I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Casanova for any and all criminal (and traffic) matters. I wish this comment box was larger, because there simply is not enough room for all the good I have to say about this man. Simply the BEST.

    “Thank you, Steven and staff”
    A call for help from our son, living 1000+ miles away, led us to Attorney Steven Casanova. What a find! From the very first phone call, we were assured that we had found the perfect individual to navigate us through a most difficult situation. Steve was extremely professional, friendly, and compassionate at all times. And, he made himself available to us by phone, even on weekends. Through his efforts, our son’s charges were dropped. Thank you, Steven and staff, for your guidance, encouragement, and kindness through this trying time.

    “Best Possible Outcome!”
    I recently referred a client to attorney Steven Casanova and I could not be happier with the result he obtained. Mr. Casanova's knowledge of criminal law and procedure, his years of experience in the courtroom, his great communication skills, the respect he has among his peers, his quick and timely responses to questions and concerns, and his true compassion for his clients makes him an extremely effective lawyer. Using these traits and his ability to strategize and negotiate, he recently and quickly achieved the best possible result for my client who I referred to him for criminal defense in a felony case. Way to go Steve! We all are extremely grateful.
