Is my probation officer also an attorney?
No. Your probation officer cannot give you legal advice. The probation officer can help explain the court process, but they cannot advise you on how to handle your case, nor can they listen to your explanation of the offense while the case is pending. You must share this information with your defense attorney.

If you need assistance in contacting your attorney, setting up a quash hearing for a bench warrant, if you have questions about the court process or your release conditions, the Intake probation officer can assist you. The probation officer is also a great resource for information regarding programs for youth such as school, community service and drug and alcohol programs.
