The criminal defense lawyers of Bellon & Maningo will defend you against the new charges or negotiate on your behalf with the district attorney’s office or the Department of Public Safety’s Division of Parole and Probation. Bellon & Maningo’s primary goal is to preserve your freedom.
Parole may be granted to a prisoner who has already served a substantial portion of a sentence. Violation of the terms of parole can send you right back to prison. The lawyers of Bellon & Maningo will carefully examine the facts of the case and listen to your explanation of events. In some cases, they may argue that you substantially complied with the terms of parole. In other cases, they may contend that the event was not, in fact, a true violation of the terms of release.
