DETAINED OR FACING A PROBATION VIOLATION HEARING?
When someone is on probation and gets accused of violating their probation or committing another offense, they are often subject to being detained in jail while awaiting a violation hearing. Unfortunately, this often results in months (sometimes even years) of wasted time.
Often times, however, we are able to petiton the court to lift the detainer entirely or, alternatively, to transfer the detainer either to an alternative housing facility, rehabiliation clinic, or house arrest pending the outcome of their violation accusation.
Additionally, we provide full-service representation for probation violation hearings themselves and we always seek to minimize any punishment which the court may apply.
CRIMINAL CASE REPRESENTATION
Although this web site is focused on bail and probation issues, our office represents individuals in criminal cases throughout Pennsylvania in both State and Federal Courts. We are considered to be among the top defense firms in the United States and our attorneys have successfully represented people in thousands of legal matters.
From the most minor charges all the way up to capital murder, we are here to help.
If you would like to discuss representation (other than simply on bail or probation issues), please contact our firm directly at (412) 281-5002 or visit our main site, www.daffnerlaw.com, and we will be happy to discuss your situation in greater detail.
STUCK AWAITING TRIAL?
Do you have a friend or family member who is stuck in jail on a prohibitively high bond?
Even though you're presumed to be innocent until proven guilty, many times the court may initially set a bail which is unreasonably high, or hasn't taken into account certain factors which should have been examined.
Your loved one IS NOT simply stuck in jail if this happens, however - in many cases we are able to get a different court to LOWER THE BAIL AMOUNT, or release our client on nonmonetary bond (i.e., with no payment required).
If your friend or family member is facing this situation, please let us know - we will be happy to do everything we can to to prevent your loved one from needlessly spending time behind bars!
