Skilled Strategies Based On Decades Of Representation
Theft is the unauthorized removal of another’s property without the intent to return it. Theft crimes come in many forms, including:
- Robbery: Theft that involves the use of threat of physical force.
- Armed robbery: Robbery in which a firearm is pointed or brandished.
- Burglary: The unlawful entry into another’s property with criminal intent. You can be charged with burglary even if you have not taken anything.
Sometimes what is considered theft is simply a misunderstanding between individuals or a case of mistaken identity. Our lawyers are skilled at strategizing in criminal defense cases, regardless the severity of the charges or complexity of the issues.
Protecting You From Embezzlement And Fraud Charges
Embezzlement and fraud are nonviolent theft crimes that do not involve the unlawful entry of a place or theft by force or fear. These cases are more complex and often require a sophisticated defense strategy to combat.
Embezzlement occurs when an individual converts property for their own use. Fraud involves the misrepresentation of facts for the purpose of obtaining ownership of another’s property/funds.
These charges often come with layers of legal ramifications and require thorough examination of the facts. We are well-versed criminal attorneys, and we know how to approach your case.
