Handling Shoplifting And Other Theft Charges

Our criminal defense practice is characterized by personalized assistance and aggressive representation. We are often able to obtain a reduction of charges for our clients.
We also represent individuals charged with grand larceny, which is a felony. Grand larceny applies when the value of the items stolen is more than $1,000, when a public record is stolen, or when a credit card or debit card is stolen.
