Understand Your Rights & Legal Options

The attorneys at Shepard Law take a holistic approach in representing VOP clients. More so than in any other type of criminal proceeding, judges and prosecutors concentrate on the defendant’s life situation and circumstances surrounding the alleged violation.

Mr. Shepard works with clients, their family, friends, co-workers, doctors and counselors, to develop a comprehensive mitigation strategy. Routinely, this entails working with doctors, mental health professionals and addictions counselors to properly diagnose and develop a treatment plan for any physical, psychological or addiction issues that the client may be suffering from in their life. Shepard Law will go the distance in order to safeguard your rights, future, and freedom!


When you are accused of violating your probation, it is vital that you retain the representation of an attorney who regularly works with the presiding judge as well as the prosecutors and law enforcement officers on the other side. This is Shepard Law's bread and butter. Mr. Shepard works hard to develop and maintain excellent working relationships with prosecutors, police and the judges. He can give you the upper hand in court and increase your chances of securing a favorable outcome.

Common Probation Violations

Unfortunately, probation often subjects people to exceedingly strict terms that can be difficult to follow. While it is reasonable to order a probationer not to commit a repeat offense, many probationers have difficulty satisfying all the other terms such as paying fines, completing extensive community service, completing education such as DUI school, anger management classes or a shoplifting course, not missing meetings with the probation officer and attending all court dates. Whether you have been accused of failing a drug test or have been arrested for a new law violation, our attorneys may be able to help you resolve the situation without further incarceration.

In some cases, Mr. Shepard may be able to address a probation violation prior to the violation being filed with the court by contacting the probation officer directly to explain the circumstances surrounding the alleged violation. Other times it is necessary to go to court and present the case to the judge, challenging the evidence of the violation and seeking to have the violation dismissed and/or the client reinstated. One thing is certain, you can improve your chances of success by selecting an attorney with experience and knowledge in handling VOPs.
