Pittsburgh Probation Violations Attorney
Violating your probation or parole can land you in jail or even extend your punishment. At Spivak Law Firm, we aim to keep you out of jail and avoid additional penalties.
If you are found to have violated your probation, a court may order you to serve the maximum time you faced when you were originally sentenced. For violating parole, a court may order you to complete your sentence in prison.
If you have been accused of violating your probation or parole, call Spivak Law Firm at (412) 344-4900 or toll free at (800) 545-9390.
Probation and Parole In Pennsylvania
Probation is given instead of a prison sentence. Parole is granted to prisoners as a reward for good behavior.
Probation allows a person to avoid jail so long as he or she follows certain conditions set by the court. Such conditions commonly include remaining employed, abiding by a curfew, submitting to alcohol and drug tests, and receiving psychological treatment. Parole, meanwhile, refers to the early release of a prisoner who promises to follow certain restrictions.

Probation Hearings In Pennsylvania
If you are accused of violating your probation or parole, you have the right to a hearing.
At the first hearing, the prosecutor has the burden of proving that there is probable cause to believe that you violated your probation or parole. If probable cause is shown, you are entitled to a separate hearing for the court or parole board to determine if your probation or parole should be revoked.
We strongly defend people accused of probation and parole violations. For more information, call Spivak Law Firm at (412) 344-4900 or toll free at (800) 545-9390.
