Our criminal defense lawyer, and former prosecutor, Christian Van Riper, is skilled and experienced in representing clients charged with probation violation offenses in West Palm Beach, Stuart, Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce, FL.

In Florida when you are put on probation, you are advised of the rules and guidelines you must abide by while under probation. If you violate the rules, your probation may be terminated and you sent back to jail pending the results of a violation or bond hearing.

Probation violation proceedings are unlike other criminal proceedings in Florida. Most significant is that the burden of proof is "preponderance of the evidence" and not "beyond a reasonable doubt" as it is in criminal trials.  Further, in a violation of probation, otherwise known as a VOP hearing, the judge will hear your case, not a jury.

If you are found guilty of violating the rules of your probation, your judge can sentence you to the maximum penalty you faced prior to being put on probation, including prison or jail. It is critical that you have an experienced and skilled criminal defense attorney represent you at your probation violation hearing.

Our trial lawyers, Christian Van Riper, a former prosecutor and DCF investigator, and Timothy Nies, a veteran and former insurance company trial lawyer, are experienced litigators. Our law firm works hard to provide professional, but economical probation violation services.
