Theft Crimes in California

In California, the severity of a theft charge depends on the extent of the crime, the specific circumstances, the value of the stolen property in question, and any prior criminal record of the defendant. Regardless of the seriousness of the charge, any criminal record can have far-reaching and long-lasting consequences for your life.

Prosecutors face many obstacles in obtaining convictions for theft crimes, and an effective defense attorney can help individuals facing these charges avoid conviction and the consequences of a criminal record.

Defense Strategies for Property Crimes

We use every available strategy to obtain a dismissal or not guilty verdict. We thoroughly review all evidence and consider factual defenses as well as defenses based on law. This may include coercion by the store management to sign a statement, missteps by a security guard, and more. In many cases, we have been able to persuade the prosecutor to not file a charge or to file a lesser charge. Early intervention is often key to a successful negotiation, so don’t wait to get the help you need.
