Maryland Theft Lawyer

If you’ve been charged with theft of any kind in Maryland, it is very important to consult with a Maryland criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Whether its felony theft or shoplifting, a theft conviction in Maryland can be devastating to your future. Employers often do not want to hire an individual who has a record (or even a charge) for theft. If you are seeking a security clearance, a theft charge can stop you in your tracks.

A Maryland criminal lawyer can help keep your record clean and assert any defenses you may have to the crime. I have a case right now in which my client is charged with theft, but I believe he actually owns the property in question. There are many other defenses to theft that you may not be aware of. In addition, a Maryland criminal atttorney can negotiate with the prosecutor to help you get into a “theft diversion” program (if available) and work out a deal whereby restitution is paid in exchange for a dismissal.

I am an experienced criminal attorney in Maryland who has handled thousands of theft cases. I have offices in both Prince George’s County, Maryland (Greenbelt) and Montgomery County, Maryland (Silver Spring). A criminal charge can be scary and you may not know what to do. Don’t panic, call me. I’d be happy to help you move forward!
