Theft charges are difficult to deal with; we can help

Generally, theft is the act of taking another person’s property with the intent to deprive that person of such property. In Central Florida, readers may be familiar with the most common form of theft, which is shoplifting. This criminal offense can be either a minor or serious offense, depending on the value of the stolen item. For example, if a person enters a store and steals a lighter, that person can be charged with a minor offense, whereas a person who has stolen a more expensive item can be charged with a serious theft charge.

One of our law firm’s fields of practice is theft. Theft charges carry far reaching consequences such as loss of job, public humiliation, jail time, driver’s license suspension and mandatory fines. These consequences can turn a person’s life upside down and the only way to avoid them is to fight the charges. As former prosecutors, we know how the system works when it comes to theft charges. Prosecutors will do everything in their power so that the accused will be found guilty of the offense.

Some people who have been accused of theft charges are professionals who have made mistakes while performing their duties. Their reputations can be ruined after they have been charged of theft or fraud. We help these people settle their case as swiftly as possible in order to contain the damage and strive to get the charges dismissed. We can also negotiate with the prosecution for lesser fines and penalties if conviction is inevitable. Our goal is to provide the defendant with the most favorable outcome.
