If you have been arrested or issued a notice to appear for a theft related case, you are probably embarrassed and feel humiliated. Our attorneys and staff understand this and are more than happy to listen to you and not judge you. Our experienced criminal defense lawyers will defend you against charges of all types of theft crimes, from petit theft to armed robbery. At the law firm of O’Toole Law Firm , our attorneys know when to fight and when to negotiate. Our main goal is to get your case dismissed whether it means going to trial or simply helping you enter into a diversion program.
If you have been accused of stealing, we can help. Our attorneys are former criminal prosecutors. This gives us the benefit of knowing the tactics of the opposition from firsthand experience. We have used the tactics that they will use. Our attorneys understand how to build a legal strategy to defend against them.
We have successfully defended hundreds of theft related cases ranging from shoplifting to armed burglary. Our record of success includes “not guilty” verdicts for armed burglary cases at trial, dismissals for armed robbery, and even a civil judgment against the police for wrongful arrest in an armed robbery case. We are available to defend you in both misdemeanor and felony cases, including: shoplifting, retail theft, grand theft, embezzlement, burglary, robbery, and worthless check.
We have also successfully resolved countless cases by way of the diversion programs offered in Miami, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. These diversion programs allow you to have your case dismissed if you perform community service and attend a shoplifting course. Sometimes, this is the best option. Sometimes, it is not. We will guide you through this process to make sure you choose the best option for you.
In shoplifting theft cases, the retailer has the right to ask for restitution. You may receive a letter from the retailer demanding a civil payment of $200, which is the minimum amount they can ask you for. We will guide you through the process of how to deal with this matter. Our experienced attorneys can help with all facets of defending against theft charges.
