Theft And Property Crimes Defense Lawyers

Penalties for theft crimes can be surprisingly harsh. In Missouri, you can be charged with a felony for stealing goods worth as little as $500. The penalties will depend on the specifics of the offense, but in general, a felony theft conviction can include a prison sentence of at least four years. You can also face civil penalties such as fines and restitution to the victims.

If you or a loved one has been charged with a theft crime, you need to take the situation seriously. Having a conviction for theft on your record can make it difficult to get a job, get financial aid, get into college or find housing. Employers and financial institutions may be especially reluctant to trust someone who has committed theft.

We Fight Theft And Fraud Charges

We represent people charged with misdemeanor and felony theft crimes such as:

  • Shoplifting
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Auto theft
  • Theft of a firearm
  • Identity theft and credit card theft
  • Fraud and embezzlement
  • Receiving stolen property

Some theft and fraud charges are the result of an error or misinterpretation of the facts. We will investigate your case to determine what really happened. If you believed you were entitled to the property or would have been granted permission by the owner to take or use it, we will work hard to prove that.

In other cases, we may work to reduce the charges or minimize the penalties. Regardless of the circumstances, we will stand up for your rights and ensure that you are treated fairly. When appropriate, we take theft cases to trial to protect our clients.
