Protecting Your Rights In Parole And Probation Violation Cases

A parole or probation violation could have serious consequences and severely affect your rights, livelihood and freedom. If you have recently been accused of a parole violation or are facing a probation violation penalty, you need immediate legal representation to minimize the consequences.

James M. Porfido has more than 20 years of experience in the criminal justice system and can effectively assert your rights. He has worked both as a prosecutor and defense attorney, and has extensive experience in the courts of Morris County and throughout New Jersey.

You need to take immediate action after a violation. An effective defense attorney can minimize the consequences of a parole violation and protect your rights and freedom. Contact us for an immediate consultation or case evaluation.

Any number of convictions can cause a defendant to come back before the court. In some instances, you may have to go back to prison on the original sentence. We will explore all of your options and alternatives to mitigate the consequences of a probation or parole violation. We may be able to refer you out to a drug treatment program, an anger management program, or a monitoring program. We can help you to negotiate the payment of restitution if you are financially unable to.

We have experience in parole and probation matters including:

  • Positive urine screening
  • Failure to pay restitution
  • Contact with a victim
  • Violating Megan's law
  • Failure to register as a sex offender

Our goal is to help the court see that you are making a good faith effort to do what is expected of you. For more information about your options after a parole violation, please contact our offices.
