An individual charged with any type of theft offense should contact an attorney as soon as possible. A theft allegation is serious and it can lead to significant penalties such as significant fines, jail time, and probation. Also, a theft charge could adversely affect an individual’s reputation and employability.
Many employment opportunities involve trust, whether it involves the handling of money, trade secrets, or sensitive company information. If an individual has a disposition on their record for a theft-related case, that could be problematic with respect to their employment prospects and whether or not they are deemed trustworthy in general.

Our lawyers will be looking for anything that could result in the case being dismissed as well as potential constitutional infringements.
