A 48-year-old construction worker who was already serving a suspended sentence for welfare fraud knew he needed to contact a criminal defense lawyer when he was charged with violating the terms of his probation. He was accused of failing to repay several thousand dollars in restitution and a conviction would send him to prison.

Not wanting to see his client sent away, we confirmed the amounted owed, arranged for payment in full, and negotiated to have the probation terminated. This removed him from further concern and permanently resolved the matter with the help of attorney Sean Hessler.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
