Hi, this is Michael A. Haber. Thank you for submitting your question about what to do with your probation officer who seems to have a power trip and is giving you a hard time. The first thing you need to understand is that you must answer your probation officer. However, it's important to note that your probation officer ultimately answers to the judge, and the judge answers to your lawyer. If you call me, I will take your case in front of the judge. In the meantime, I need you to do the following - put a smile on your face and say "yes sir," "no sir," "yes ma'am," "no ma'am." You must follow your probation officer's instructions until the judge orders otherwise. If you need further assistance, feel free to call me. I am here to help you. Remember, Michael A. Haber, PA - we are focused on reasonable doubt.
