Experienced Attorneys Providing Strong Defense Strategies Against Accusations Of Shoplifting
If you need legal advice following an arrest for shoplifting in Atlanta or elsewhere in north Georgia, discuss your situation with an experienced criminal defense lawyer who can advise you of your best options for resolving the problem.
At Teiger Law Center, P.C., our goal is not only to minimize your exposure to punishment on the current charge, but also to protect your record from a permanent misdemeanor or felony conviction, which at a minimum could expose you to greater punishment on any number of future problems, including limiting your opportunities for employment, education, housing, lending or a security clearance if you work for the government.
Understanding And Defending Against Accusations Of Property Crimes
Whether you are a college student and have been accused of stealing from someone in the dorms, or you are a concerned parent whose son or daughter faces criminal charges, our team can step in and help you understand what you’re up against.
Some of the most common types of cases we see include:
- First offense or repeat shoplifting offenses
- Misdemeanor or felony retail theft
- Retail fraud through returns, credit card theft or bad checks
- Dine-and-dash charges
- Theft of services
When possible, we will investigate the facts to see whether any problems with the evidence or the circumstances of your arrest can be used to move for dismissal or a significant reduction of the charges. If the evidence against you is likely to stand up in court, we will work instead to take advantage of pretrial diversion programs, probation, counseling or community service options. Most of all, we will concentrate on keeping your case eligible for expungement, so as to minimize the lasting consequences of the case.
