Jacksonville Theft Lawyer
Legal Guidance from Our Jacksonville Attorney
In Florida, there are a variety of theft crimes that can result in substantial penalties upon conviction. Whether you have been arrested for a misdemeanor shoplifting crime or felony burglary crime, you must speak with an experienced lawyer at your earliest convenience. At the Albaugh Law Firm, we stand strong when it comes to protecting your rights and can employ a comprehensive approach to ensure that you are adequately defended against criminal charges. We can begin by performing a thorough investigation into the facts of your arrest. Our Jacksonville theft lawyers know how to handle the allegations made against you!
You can either be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the value placed on the items stolen. In many cases, victims of theft crimes inflate the value of what has been stolen or add to the list of items taken. As a result, you can face worse charges than you actually deserve. At the Albaugh Law Firm, we can help you avoid undeserved felony penalties. We are aware of the issues surrounding theft crimes and can steadfastly investigate the reported loss and question the claims made by the victim. Our goal is to pursue a reduction or dismissal of your charges.

If you have been arrested for a theft crime, it is important to understand the short- and long-term consequences that a conviction can have on your life. Your conviction can lead to lengthy jail time, probation, and heavy fines. Theft is considered a “crime of dishonesty,” and therefore, your credibility will always be in question, which can prohibit you from obtaining future employment opportunities. Even if you have only been arrested for petty theft, you need one of our experienced lawyers by your side.
