Facing Theft Charges? Get Help From A Street-Smart Defense Attorney And Former Police Officer.

If you or a loved one has been charged with theft, it's important to speak with a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.

The consequences of a theft conviction can affect your life for many years. Along with jail time and expensive fines, it will also appear on background checks that employers, landlords and schools conduct. Even a shoplifting conviction can exclude you from jobs, housing, financial aid and other kinds of opportunities.

The exact penalties are determined by the type and value of property involved and whether the offense included the threat, use of force or a weapon.
