Mix-ups happen all the time.

You may have picked up an item just to look at it and forgotten to pay for it on the way out. Perhaps, you made a poor decision when you were in a difficult situation and you got caught. Our attorneys have significant experience in defending theft crimes ranging from petty shoplifting to more serious charges such as robbery and burglary. At Austin, Katzman, & Thom, P.C., we understand that people make mistakes, but your future should not be ruined because of one impulsive act.

At the Liberty Law Center our defense attorneys vigorously defend adults and juveniles facing any level of theft charge.

We defend against any theft issues you may encounter including the following charges:

  • Theft from their employer
  • Shoplifting
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Fraudulent use of a credit card
  • Auto theft
  • Embezzlement
  • Check fraud

Theft is not really a big deal, right?

Having a criminal record is a serious matter. Depending on the value of the items in the case, you could be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. If you are convicted of a petty offense or misdemeanor, you may find it difficult to find a job. A felony conviction has even stronger repercussions. If the prosecution is claiming you stole more than $1,000 worth of items, you could be facing felony charges, a prison sentence, and further consequences including losing the right to vote, bear arms, or get a student loan. Speaking with an experienced theft lawyer is important.

What about shoplifting?

In Colorado, shoplifting charges are serious. You can be banned from the store making it a criminal offense if you return. You can also incur a civil penalty from the store. Some business owners are even retaining the names of people charged with theft or shoplifting in computer databases. That could impact your ability to get a job in the future and even your ability to enter certain retail facilities.

Don’t let one mistake steal your future

With your very future at stake, why risk having a poor defense? At Austin, Katzman, & Thom, P.C., we examine every facet of the charge and arrest. Did the police have probable cause to search or arrest you? Did they follow appropriate procedure? Can the actual amount of the items in question be proven? Our goal is to get the very best outcome for our clients by negotiating the reduction or dismissal of the charge, or if necessary, take the case to trial. We vigorously defend your liberty and your rights in all cases, no matter the level of offense.
