HOW WE CAN BEST HELP WITH YOUR SHOPLIFTING CHARGE:

Our primary goal is the dismissal of your charge and removal of the allegation from your record. Defense of a shoplifting case in Fort Lauderdale can be best achieved by the strategies outlined below:
  • Contact the State Attorney's Office Before Court - Often times there is evidence that was not considered by the store or law enforcement at the time of the alleged offense. Some of the smaller prosecutor's offices, including the City of Fort Lauderdale, may be willing to negotiate a resolution of your case without the need for court. We will also request and advocate for the filing of a lesser charge if dismissal is not an option.
  • Immediately Start to Prepare the Best Defense - The sooner you allow us to represent you, the better. We will discuss any and all defenses and strategies, the facts surrounding the allegations, the effect it may have on your livelihood or citizenship and explore the best methods to make your shoplifting case go away.
  • Dismissal of your Shoplifting Charge as a Result of a Diversion Program - We have had great success in achieving dismissal for our clients accused of shoplifting in Fort Lauderdale utilizing this method of defense. Each prosecuting agency has different diversion programs with different rules and requirements. The city of Fort Lauderdale Prosecutor's Office has their own unique diversion program. We will evaluate your eligibility for entry and completion of the Fort Lauderdale or any other diversion program. After the program is completed, the City of Fort Lauderdale prosecutor will drop your case and it will be dismissed.
  • Negotiate with the Prosecutor - We have successfully negotiated favorable results for clients accused of shoplifting in the Fort Lauderdale area. We will look for ways to make sure a shoplifting conviction remains off of your record by way of a "withholding of adjudication" and minimize any other potential penalties.
  • Determine if your Shoplifting Charge can be Removed From Your Record - We have helped thousands of clients accused of shoplifting in the Fort Lauderdale area get their records sealed or expunged after successfully concluding their cases in court. After the case is sealed or expunged, you will be able to lawfully deny or fail to acknowledge your shoplifting charge and the case will be removed from your record and most background checks.

An allegation of shoplifting can have a devastating effect on your reputation, your livelihood and overall well being. It is crucial that a shoplifting case be handled with extreme care and caution by an experienced shoplifting defense lawyer who can obtain the best possible result. We are former prosecutors and have handled thousands of shoplifting cases in Fort Lauderdale for over 25 years.
