We Defend Your Rights
Most charges involving the theft of someone else’s property will end up in the Pennsylvania courts regardless of whether it is a felony, misdemeanor or summary offense (which is not a criminal offense). It is important to remember that the authorities are obligated to protect your individual rights. They must also provide proof that you committed the theft and that your intentions were malicious in nature.
Whether it is your first offense or a subsequent one, it is crucial to work with a defense lawyer who understands what is at stake. Criminal charges can leave a lasting impact on one’s career, education prospects and standing in the community. It can also involve prison and other severe penalties, particularly if you are a repeat offender or face felony charges.
