Probation appears deceptively simple.
That doesn’t mean it’s easy.
It may feel like the hard work is behind you, but technical probation violations can be a disaster.
Good lawyers advise their clients to retain professional help for technical compliance issues in all fields, because any issue of technical compliance can be a minefield. While not every misstep will blow up, you never know when a simple error will explode. Perfect probation compliance is hard.
Did you know that missing a filing on probation can send you right back to State Bar Court?
Rule of Procedure 5.310 gives the Probation Department the ability to send your case back to Bar Court for an expedited proceeding. Your probation can be revoked and any stayed suspension can quickly be made into an actual suspension.
