A Message From The Law Office of Edward J. Kone, P.A.

We hope that everyone is doing well during this difficult Coronavirus situation. We are praying for a prompt end to this virus and for things to get back to normal. We Americans are strong, optimistic and full of life and we will not let this get us down. There is no reason to be depressed or panicked - think positive because according to the Torah, our minds influence our realities.

Please be aware that our office has been open and will continue to be open barring any unforeseen circumstances. We are here from 8:30 am until 5:00 pm Monday - Friday and I can always be reached on my cell phone after hours and on weekends. My cell phone number is 561-212-2968. We are at full capacity and are ready and willing to deal with any legal needs that you might have.

Thank you and G-d bless.

Violations of Probation (VOP)

When a citizen is placed on probation, he or she is required to comply with all of the terms and conditions that are imposed. Any violation will almost always result in an Affidavit of Violation of Probation being filed and the Judge issuing a Warrant (usually No Bond). VOP Hearings only require the State to prove the violations by a preponderance of the evidence rather than beyond a reasonable doubt, hearsay is allowed with limited exceptions, and the Defendant can be required to testify. If found in violation, the Judge can sentence the citizen to significantly more punishment than what was originally imposed including but not limited to substantial jail or prison time. An experienced criminal defense attorney is a must.
