We are knowledgeable of all applicable Georgia theft law and we will apply it to your case. We have successfully defended many clients wrongly accused of theft crimes. Our vigorous defense has resulted in dismissals and acquittals following a jury trial.

Hard economic times, as well as youthful lapses in judgment, can result in an otherwise law abiding citizen facing theft charges. Everyone makes mistakes. But, a mistake doesn’t have to haunt you for the rest of your life. We have been successful in resolving certain theft cases, particularly misdemeanors, in a manner that results in a dismissal and a clear criminal record.

A theft conviction will remain on your criminal record for life and it can be seen by potential employers, colleges, and military recruiters. It can have a negative impact on every aspect of your future. Many employers and educational institutions will not risk hiring or being affiliated with someone who has a record containing a theft related conviction. Most judges take theft charges very seriously and believe that people charged with a theft should be singled out for harsh treatment. An experienced criminal defense attorney can prevent this from happening and can take the necessary steps to protect your record and your future. Do not plead guilty to a theft related offense without consulting an attorney who is experienced in resolving theft cases.
