Experienced Defense Against a Wide Range of Property Crimes

Property crimes involve taking someone else's property (stealing) or destroying property. We have defended clients charged with property crimes involving:

  • Shoplifting
  • Theft charges, including petty theft and grand theft (anything over $400)
  • Car theft
  • Arson
  • Vandalism
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Criminal trespass
  • Receiving stolen property

Reducing Your Charges by Returning Stolen Property

If you have been charged with stealing an object, and you did in fact steal the object, and the object is in the same condition it was taken in, you can return the stolen item to help reduce the possible penalties. This is one of the best ways to help prevent serious penalties if the evidence is against you. However, make sure you speak with a criminal defense attorney before you act.

A Crime of Moral Turpitude for Immigration Purposes

Property crimes are considered Crimes of Moral Turpitude for immigration purposes. This means that you may be subject to deportation, removal, loss of permanent residency, or denial of naturalization for a property crime conviction. If you are an immigrant charged with a property crime, do not hesitate to contact us.
