There are times when a person has been convicted of a crime, and they are eligible for probation in lieu of a prison or jail sentence.

Violating these conditions can result in significant consequences. At the Nunez Law Firm, PLLC, we are here to help when you need a Phoenix probation violation lawyer.

If probation is revoked, a person may need to serve the entire sentence related to their original charge. If a person has been charged with a new crime and thereby had their probation revoked, they may end up serving time for their original conviction as well as any new conviction.
