Each of the attorneys at Donet, McMillan & Trontz. (DMT) has extensive experience successfully defending probation violation cases. A probation violation is fundamentally different than a new criminal case. There is already a plea or a verdict in place, which means that the underlying case is closed. The standard of proof in an open criminal case is beyond a reasonable doubt. Once the case is closed and a defendant is placed on probation, there is no right to jury trial and the judge will determine whether or not the defendant violated his/her probation. Although a probation violation case is a sticky situation, the Lauderdale-By-The-Sea probation violation lawyers at DMT can help.

The team at Donet, McMillan & Trontz is exceptional. Mr. McMillan, in particular, has a way of explaining the processes involved, the options that may come up and the potential outcome in a manner that makes "legal-ese" simple to understand. The support staff (especially Ms. Collazo) is also wonderful. Even during this COVID period, this team kept me informed and up-to-date on all details. Whether you have a need for civil or criminal legal assistance, this team is there for you.
Something else to keep in mind is that it is easier for a state or federal prosecutor to prove probation violation than it is to convict an individual at trial. When you face a probation violation, you are likely to be held in custody without bond while you wait for a probation violation hearing. During your hearing, your case will be heard by a judge. The standard of proof is much different here. During a trial, the prosecutor has to prove guilt beyond reasonable doubt. With a probation violation hearing, the prosecution only has to prove the case by a preponderance of evidence. There are two types of probation violations, substantive and technical. The Lauderdale-By-The-Sea probation violation lawyers at DMT have the experience necessary to handle both types successfully. The criminal attorneys at Donet, McMillan & Trontz. have the experience and reputation you need when you are facing a probation violation.
