  • Can I be violated on my probation?

    I am on alcohol terms & blew a .023 at probation and am on alcohol terms

    Brian’s Answer

    That depends what you mean by "alcohol terms." But, assuming these terms said not to consume any alcohol, I'd say violation is not just possible, it's darned likely. Get a lawyer.

    Brian’s Answer

    If your attorney was privately retained, you can fire him at any time. If you are represented by the public defender you must make a Marsden motion in court. These are hard to win.

    Whether you will get any money back depends on the terms of the contract you signed with the attorney. If you and the attorney dispute the terms or if you agree, but he refuses to return the money anyway, the only way to get your money back is to sue him.
