Assertive Defense In Property Crime Cases
How can a criminal charge for a property crime affect your future? It is not only the criminal punishment, but also the collateral consequences that can plague you for a long time. Having a criminal record in itself can limit employment and housing opportunities.
At Mingledorff Law, we have defended hundreds of people facing allegations of shoplifting, robbery and other theft-related crimes in Houston and the surrounding Texas communities.
Our knowledge and experience help us thoroughly evaluate your case to determine its strength and potential pitfalls, and then help you decide the best course of action to pursue. Sometimes your interests may be best served by negotiating with the prosecutor, but when a trial is our best option we do not hesitate to fight for you in the courtroom.
Do I Need An Attorney If Accused Of Stealing Or Shoplifting?
Many people think of shoplifting as a fairly minor offense, but when you are facing criminal proceedings, there is no such thing as a small case.
A conviction on theft-related charges can have long-lasting consequences that can make it difficult to live the life you want. Potential employers may be scared off by a shoplifting conviction on your record, and securing certain kinds of work may become nearly impossible.
If a police officer or prosecutor offers you a deal that seems favorable, you may be tempted to pay the fine, plead guilty and get on with your life. Before making a decision, speak with a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney. Securing the right counsel can help you avoid costly mistakes and a lifelong criminal record. We may be able to have the charges reduced or dismissed altogether, or assist with sealing the arrest or conviction if necessary.
