Morris County Attorney for Theft or Shoplifting Charges
It is difficult for some people to equate a minor theft like shoplifting with a major crime such as robbery, burglary or stealing a car. In the eyes of the law, however, these offenses are all serious and differ only in degree. If you plead guilty or are convicted of theft, you are a thief in the eyes of the law — potentially for the rest of your life.
At the northern New Jersey law firm of Maynard Law Office, LLC in Morristown, our team of experienced criminal law attorneys defend men, women and juvenile clients charged with misdemeanor or felony theft, including:
- Shoplifting and other forms of petty theft
- Possession of stolen property
- Auto theft and grand larceny
- Burglary, robbery and armed robbery (technically a violent crime)
Some offenses often classified as white collar crimes — writing bad checks, credit card fraud, embezzlement and identity theft, for example — are technically theft by deception. We offer experienced defense representation in all types of theft cases.
If a loved one was arrested for theft or you are facing charges for any misdemeanor or felony theft or property crime, it is extremely important to discuss your rights and real legal options with an attorney before making any statement to the police. It is too easy to close the door on an effective defense when you don’t have the guidance of a lawyer who understands the system and is committed to fighting for you.
Don’t let financial concerns keep you from obtaining the high-quality legal advice, experienced representation and dedicated support you need to fight a theft charge. We gladly accept all major credit cards and will work out a flexible payment plan, if necessary. What’s important is that you get the help you need now, before it’s too late.
