Probation Violation Counsel and Representation
A good defence lawyer can be your most valuable asset when you are charged with violating the terms of your probation. Alberta probation officers have the authority to file an arrest warrant if they believe you have been irresponsible in violation your parole. If you think your actions may lead to an affidavit for your arrest, contact us so we can help you plan your next move.
Protect Your Freedom
When a warrant is issued for your arrest, it may include an amount of money that can be paid for your release called a probation violation bond. On summary/misdemeanour warrants, a bond amount is usually listed immediately. However, in indictable/felony warrants, you are arrested and booked; at which point you wait in jail until the judge decides whether or not to set a bond for your release. It is critical to retain effective counsel so that your rights are respected even after you are detained.
