Fighting Criminal Charges

There are many different kinds of theft crimes, and accusations can come from many different parties. For example, if you received property as a gift but the giving party claims it was only on loan, they may accuse you of theft. If you accidentally left a store without paying for something, you may be charged with shoplifting. You may have even been a victim of identity theft and accused of fraudulent purchases. While you know the true story, your prosecutors will do whatever they can to secure a conviction and ensure you suffer the maximum criminal penalties.

  • Shoplifting
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Embezzlement
