- Theft Defense Lawyer in Yuma
Our legal team has decades of shared experience in the defense of serious criminal cases, including all types of theft offenses. There are frequently strong options to defend such cases, and the attorney will immediately review and evaluate your situation to determine how to defend you. There are often cases of mistaken identity, or a case in which an individual inadvertently walked off with an item without paying for it. This is an error that can happen to anyone, and should be addressed carefully so that you don’t suffer the legal consequences of a criminal conviction.
In other more serious theft crimes, there could be errors in police procedure, failure to uphold your rights with regard to search and seizure, or other aspects of the case that can be exploited for the defense. It is vital that you act quickly as there could be evidence or witness statements that can become difficult to find, and you need the protection of our defense attorney during any questioning. If you discover you are under investigation, do not answer any questions, but politely tell investigators that you are going to contact your attorney for counsel. We will protect you throughout the process and aggressively pursue a not guilty verdict in court, or a dismissed charge, or in some cases negotiate with the prosecutor for a less serious charge.
