Have you been accused of a theft?
An owner's rights to property are protected by law. Taking the property of another without the owner's consent is a theft crime and treated very seriously by law enforcement in this state.

Taking something of great value or the use of violence can mean a felony charge. If you have been accused of or arrested for a theft, a criminal lawyer at our firm is prepared to help.
