Theft Crime Defense Attorney
Depending on the severity of the offense, a conviction on theft crime charges can carry stiff penalties including fines, probation, jail or prison time. In addition, you could find yourself with a permanent criminal record that makes it difficult for you to get a job, apply for credit. Theft related criminal records carry many consequences beyond just the sentence.
Theft crimes can involve a broad range of offenses from shoplifting, petty theft, dine and dash, embezzlement, grand theft, forgery, insufficient funds checks (NSF) to burglary or armed robbery. If you are facing any type of theft crime charges, be sure that you have an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side to help protect your rights. At the law office, I have helped countless clients who were accused of a theft offense.
Creating a Strong Case on Your Behalf
When you hire me as your attorney, I will pursue every legal option available in order to reach the best possible outcome available in your case. I will review the police reports and any witness statements to learn as much as I can about the incident. I will create the strongest argument I can in an effort to beat the charges against you.
I have also been successful in the past with negotiating a civil compromise for my clients. This is a negotiation that happens directly with the victim to return the stolen property or reimburse the victim for the loss. In a civil compromise, the victim would drop the case against you once the property had been returned or restitution had been made.
