Phoenix Criminal Defense Attorney Joshua S. Davidson: Defending Probation Violations

A probation violation is a serious offense in Arizona, and it is very important to enlist the services of a Phoenix criminal defense lawyer to deal with probation officers and help you navigate through the court system. The consequences of violating probation can be serious, and if charged, you could be held in jail without bond while the court determines if a probation violation was committed. Unlike a trial where the prosecutor has to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, the court need only find a preponderance of the evidence before holding you in violation of your probation.

If you or someone you care about has been charged with violating felony or misdemeanor probation in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Glendale or Tempe, you need a committed and aggressive criminal defense lawyer at your side to fight for your rights in order to achieve the best possible results. As a former Phoenix prosecutor, Joshua S. Davdison knows exactly how to ensure the best outcome of your probation violation, and will put his knowledge and experience to work for you.
