Individuals who face charges of theft, burglary or robbery should not underestimate the serious consequences that a conviction could have on their job and family life. A theft conviction could result in a jail sentence, or if you are a legal alien, you may suffer deportation.
At the Law Offices of Mickey Sherman in Greenwich, Connecticut, I have extensive experience defending individuals against a wide variety of theft charges, including:
- Armed robbery
- Check fraud and check forgery
- Receiving stolen property
- Identity theft
Fairfield County Larceny Defense Attorney
Many theft cases involve shoplifting by an individual with no prior arrests or convictions. Often, it is a juvenile. The most common mistake in these cases is failing to recognize the importance of hiring an attorney who will protect your rights and act in your best interest.
False accusations for shoplifting also occur. If you have been falsely accused of any kind of theft, you should act quickly to have a knowledgeable attorney address the issue. Sometimes, a theft or robbery is a direct result of an underlying psychological problem or an addiction that can be treated outside of the criminal justice system.
By being proactive in seeking counseling or alternative sentencing, I may be able to show the court and prosecutors that you do not deserve a criminal record or jail sentence. If this proves to be the best strategy in your case, I can help negotiate the terms of diversion and make sure you are entered into the program as quickly as possible.
Of course, we don't look for plea bargains when the evidence is strongly in your favor. I am an experienced litigator who will go to trial to clear your name if it's in your best interest. I have the experience, reputation and knowledge of the law to develop a strong defense on your behalf.
