A Practical Approach To Theft Charges

Theft is called a property crime because it typically involves taking things, not harming people. Unless a theft charge is combined with an assault or weapons charge, it may be resolved by arranging to compensate the other party, since the charge could result from a misunderstanding.

Most people just want their money back. We have successfully negotiated arrangements where the case is viewed as civil in nature and the charges are dropped in return for full compensation from the accused. This does not work in all cases.

If successful, the case is dropped and our client does not have a criminal record.

Because these agreements can only be negotiated early in the process, it is important to contact us as soon as possible after your arrest. The initial consultation is free of charge. By the time a public defender is assigned, your options may be more limited.

If we cannot get the case dismissed, we will work to reduce the charges and develop a strategy for minimizing the negative consequences to you.
