A charge of Shoplifting can alter a person's life.  I have represented teenagers who made a mistake, adults who used terrible judgment, and people of all ages who are wrongly accused.

Shoplifting is a charge that can be kept off of your record.  Knowing the Courts and the Prosecutors can help an attorney navigate a way to get his client out of a charge of shoplifting.

I have  negotiated deals with the stores so that they would drop the charges.  I have negotiated with the State to get my client diversion.  And I have tried shoplifting cases and received a Not Guilty verdict.
