Experienced Theft Charges Attorneys in Houston
Our attorneys have spent countless hours defending those accused of property crimes. In all cases, a theft or property crime conviction is a blemish on your criminal record and is accompanied by jail time, probation, and restitution. A theft conviction will prohibit you from getting a good job and permanently ruin your credibility.
Throughout our experience, we have learned that a large portion of those accused of these offenses are suffering from other life issues such as substance abuse, mental illness, depression, recent divorce or unemployment. These are all valid mitigating factors on which we can often get theft charges reduced or dropped, in addition to counseling or treatment recommendations. Our staff will also contact the victims or other witnesses to explain the client’s situation and discuss an appropriate punishment or restitution.
