Theft & Shoplifting

Defending Against Theft And Shoplifting Charges

It is important to mount a strong defense against theft charges. Even a seemingly minor charge such as shoplifting could have serious consequences, making it difficult for you to find employment in the future.

As an experienced criminal defense lawyer, I can give you the best possible chance of putting this theft charge behind you and avoiding the consequences of a theft crime conviction.

Have You Been Charged With Theft In New Jersey?

I defend clients against a wide range of misdemeanor and felony theft charges (also known as larceny or stealing) in New Jersey, including:

  • Shoplifting
  • Burglary
  • Grand theft
  • Petty theft
  • Auto theft
  • Credit card theft
  • Cellphone theft

There are defenses against theft charges. In some cases, it may be appropriate to argue that the defendant was not aware that the property belonged to someone else, or that he or she had an honest claim of right to the property.

For first-time offenders, there may be an opportunity to get charges reduced, depending on the circumstances. I will carefully review the facts of your situation to determine the best defense strategy to help you obtain a favorable outcome.
