Probation & Community Control

Probation & Community ControlFor decades, we have been successfully representing clients facing a wide range of charges. Our Palm Beach and Broward County criminal defense lawyers handle all aspects of our clients’ cases, up to and including the post-trial or diversion aspects, which often include probation and/or community control.

These types of programs, and others of a related, supervisory nature, are defined in s. 948.001 of the Florida State Statutes. Probation, for instance, is defined as a form of community service requiring specified contacts with parole and probation officers and a number of other conditions outlined in s. 948.03. Community control, on the other hand, indicates a form of intensive, supervised custody in the community, which includes surveillance on weekends and holidays, administered by officers with restricted caseloads. Community control is an individualized program in which the freedom of an offender is restricted within the community, home, or noninstitutional residential placement and specific sanctions are imposed and enforced.

Below, you will find links to a variety of pages, written by our Palm Beach and Broward County criminal defense lawyers, which outline various aspects of probation and community control-type programs. Our attorneys believe it’s crucial that you familiarize yourself with the state laws regulating these types of programs, because despite the phrase “what you don’t know can’t hurt you,” we know that quite the opposite is true. If you have any questions about these administrative rules, or about any other criminal defense issue, please contact our Palm Beach and Broward County criminal defense lawyers by calling 1-888-5-DEFEND (1-888-533-3363).

  • Brian Leifert is an excellent criminal defense attorney, well experienced in criminal court cases such as DUI and drug possession as well as traffic cases. If you have a traffic ticket in Broward or Palm Beach County you just bring it to his office and they take care of it. They maintain excellent communication to let you know what is happening with your case. I refer anyone that needs his services and they are always happy.
  • Consulted with Doug on a speeding ticket which I really didn't deserve, in my opinion...
    Doug is great! He is professional, fair and follows through. He took care of my case quickly and thoroughly. I was at ease throughout the entire process. My case was dismissed, no points, no traffic school and his fee was very reasonable!
  • I received a ticket for a stop sign violation. I am a careful driver and had a perfect driving record until now. I hired Douglas Leifert and was thrilled that he got my case dismissed - no points, no traffic school, no fines. Would definitely hire again!
  • After consulting several attorneys, I hired Mr. Leifert to represent me on a complicated and potentially devastating case.
