Theft Offenses & Crimes Against Property

Every criminal charge has the potential to affect your life adversely, and property and theft crimes can range from shoplifting to grand theft, embezzlement of substantial amounts and other business or insurance fraud.

If you’re facing these types of charges, it’s crucial to obtain representation from an experienced criminal defense attorney who can help you understand the legal context of the charges and the risk to your future.

Why You Need An Attorney

As your defense attorney, I will use every legal tool available to protect your rights, your reputation and your freedom. For professionals charged with fraud or other white-collar offenses, the damage from merely being charged can be significant and long-lasting. A conviction can be career-ending.

Call Me And Remain Silent

During any arrest or police investigation, the best course of action for your defense is to not answer police questions and do not attempt to “explain” your side of the story.

Ask for an attorney and then remain silent and wait to speak with me. Allow me to speak for you. As a former prosecutor, I understand they types of information they are seeking and I can ensure that you to not make an inadvertent misstatement that can be used against you later.

For any suspect, the greatest risk when speaking with the police is inadvertently saying something that may compromise or complicate your case.

No matter what charges you face, I will work to help you obtain the best outcome available.
