Boca Raton Theft Defense Lawyer

Protecting Your Rights And Your Future

The long-term consequences of a theft conviction can significantly impact your day-to-day life. For example, many employers use criminal background checks to screen potential employees. A conviction for theft — even for something like shoplifting — may cause them to think twice about your application. Furthermore, felony property crimes can result in a limitation of your civil rights, including your right to vote and to bear arms.

Therefore, if you or someone you know has been arrested for crimes involving another's property, contact me, Boca Raton theft defense attorney Douglas J. Rudman. I aggressively defend clients facing theft charges in state and federal courts throughout South Florida.

Before you speak with law enforcement officials, exercise your right to receive counsel. Contact my office at 561-367-2542 or 800-481-3829 toll free for a free initial consultation.

Experienced Palm Beach County Attorney For Burglary And Robbery Defense

As a former prosecutor, I have handled property crimes from both sides. I apply my hands-on experience to helping my clients defend their rights against misdemeanor and felony property crimes such as:

  • Burglary
  • Home invasion
  • Robbery and armed robbery
  • Grand theft
  • Retail theft/shoplifting
  • Check fraud/worthless checks
  • Forgery
  • Credit card fraud
  • Identity theft
  • State and federal white collar crimes
  • Fraudulent pawn transactions
  • Dealing in stolen property
  • Perjury

Most theft and property crimes are built on circumstantial evidence, so it takes an experienced criminal defense lawyer to assess the strength of the prosecution's charges and plan your defense strategy accordingly. For misdemeanor offenses such as shoplifting, for example, this may include exploring diversionary programs and other sentencing alternatives. For felony offenses such as robbery or burglary, aggressive trial representation may be necessary.

Whatever the nature of your charges, I will thoroughly investigate all the evidence involved to determine the most effective defense strategy given your unique circumstances. I am always prepared to take matters to trial if it is in your best interest to do so.
