At Paul D Petrus Jr. & Associates, PC we are willing to continue the fight after the criminal or parole case appears to be lost. Writs breakdown into different situations. The first is based on if there was a problematic preliminary hearing in a parole violation and the second is whether or not a person received a fair bail hearing. In both of those situations, the client may have a right to have the criminal court’s decision modified or the parole preliminary hearing officer’s decision reversed. Mr. Petrus is experienced in both of these matters and believes that all parolees should receive a fair preliminary hearing during his/her parole violation proceedings. Mr. Petrus also believes that one’s bail should be set at an amount that is no greater than necessary to ensure the defendant’s return to court. In addition, if a person’s facts change it might be a good idea to argue again for a lower bail or take a writ.
