Property crimes may not seem as important as other crimes, but they are often charged as felonies. Any conviction has the potential for jail time and fines. It also appears on a background check, making it more difficult to get a job, apply for school or get a loan.
Be aware: Whether you have been charged with what seems to you to be a minor property crime or a more serious one, you need an experienced property crime defense lawyer to defend your rights.
Minimizing The Impact On You
We understand how any conviction can affect the rest of your life, and we want to minimize the impact. If you retain our services quickly, our criminal defense attorneys can be by your side during initial interviews and hearings. This also gives us the opportunity to negotiate the charges against you, potentially reducing the harm they may cause.
We can defend you against property crime charges, including:
- Retail theft
- Receiving stolen property
- Theft of services
- Theft of leased property
- Criminal mischief
These can result in mandatory jail time if a gun is used. The severity of the sentence also depends upon the nature of the injury or threat.
Defending Your Rights
Our lawyers sit down with you to hear your side of the story. We build a close, comfortable relationship with you so we can be honest about the charges you are facing and what your available options may mean for your future. If going to court is your best option, we are experienced trial lawyers providing aggressive representation and compassionate, personal service.
Our goal is to mitigate the damage an arrest may cause and to obtain the best possible outcome in your case. To do this, we review all of the evidence the police have gathered against you and compare it to your version of the events. If necessary, we work with experts to gather further evidence in your defense.
