As a former prosecutor and private defense attorney, David W. Foley has extensive experience defending people charged with property crimes. Expect experienced, aggressive defense representation in cases involving:
Penalties for shoplifting and other theft crimes will vary in severity, depending on the amount of money involved. The difference between a misdemeanor and felony lies in the value of what was stolen. A conviction for any of these crimes can place a blemish on your criminal record and complicate your efforts to get a job, acquire a loan or secure housing.
Our team looks closely into whether a violation of your constitutional rights occurred during your arrest and processing. A case can be thrown out because of violations like these. We explore every avenue possible to facilitate reduction or dismissal of your charges.
Often, first-time offenders can avoid jail and other adverse consequences of arrest for misdemeanor shoplifting and theft charges. We have experience negotiating these types of outcomes and will work to help you obtain the best possible outcome in your case.
In addition to misdemeanor and felony theft charges, The Foley Law Firm also defends people facing white collar crime charges such as embezzlement, fraud and money laundering. We will aggressively defend you at all stages of the legal process.
