Experienced Representation Against Property Crimes

Have you been charged with a theft crime? You should obtain experienced legal representation as soon as possible. You face the possibility of jail or prison time, as well as a criminal record. I am J.B. Katz, a criminal defense attorney with more than 20 years of experience. I am aggressive, knowledgeable in the law and determined to obtain the best possible outcome for every client.


An Aggressive Defense Of Your Rights

The penalties for a conviction of one these crimes will vary, depending upon the severity of the offense. Prosecutors may seek stronger punishments if you have committed other crimes in the past. You need to know what rights are available to you in your situation. At my firm, I defend people accused of all types of theft crimes, including:

  • Petty theft
  • Shoplifting
  • Auto theft
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Credit card fraud
  • Passing bad checks
  • Other theft crimes

If you are in jail, my first goal will be to get you released on bond or your own recognizance. Whatever your circumstances, I will collect as much information as I can about the circumstances of your arrest. If the case against you appears to be flawed, I may be able to persuade the prosecutor to drop the charge or file a lesser charge instead. Many people charged with theft are eligible for deferred judgment outcomes, which can enable you to avoid a conviction and a criminal record. If your circumstances permit, I can seek this outcome for you, as well as an expungement at a later time. If necessary, I will also be fully prepared to go to trial to defend you.
