Attorneys Handling Shoplifting Charges in NJ

From Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyers

While being convicted of shoplifting will not land you in prison, it will still create a criminal record that can affect your future when it comes to career, educational and other opportunities. If you have been charged with grand or petty theft from a store or other retail location, seeking qualified legal advice is an essential first step.

There are several ways to fight shoplifting charges and minimize the consequences when working with a capable defense lawyer. In some cases, especially for first offenses, it is possible to avoid having a permanent blemish on your record through the record expungement process.

The lawyers of DeGrado Halkovich, LLC have extensive knowledge of record expungement and can defend you against shoplifting charges in NJ in a number of ways depending on your circumstances. We can:

  • Challenge the evidence against you
  • Question the testimony of store personnel
  • Work to mitigate or reduce the charges themselves
  • Seek alternatives to traditional sentencing

The type of shoplifting charge will depend on the value of the allegedly stolen goods. Because of this, a person can be charged with misdemeanor or felony shoplifting. Working with an experienced attorney is imperative to ensure that you understand all of your defense options.
