Fort Myers Theft Crime Defense Lawyers
Being convicted of a theft crime such as larceny or dealing in stolen property can turn your world upside down. You could be facing fines, incarceration, probation and more. If convicted, you will have a permanent mark on your criminal record. This could negatively impact your life for many years to come.
At Aiken & O’Halloran, we understand what is at stake in theft crime cases. Our team includes former prosecutors and investigators. We know how prosecutors build theft crime cases of all sizes, and we know how to defend against allegations of theft and minimize the negative consequences for the accused.
Have You Been Charged With Petty Theft, Robbery Or Grand Larceny?
At Aiken & O’Halloran, criminal defense attorneys Peter Aiken and Sean O’Halloran represent clients accused of various theft crimes, ranging from purse snatching to grand larceny. With decades of trial experience and familiarity with local courts, our attorneys may be able to convince local prosecutors to agree to pre-trial diversion and ultimately drop your case.
If you have been charged with petty theft or a much more serious white collar crime such as embezzlement, do not wait to speak with an attorney. Delaying may greatly limit your options for a defense. We encourage you to contact Aiken & O’Halloran today to discuss your defense options.
Our attorneys also represent clients accused of identity theft and other technology-based crimes.
Will Your Criminal Case Proceed to Trial?
The simple fact is that only a small fraction of criminal cases, including those alleging theft crimes, go to trial. Most criminal cases are resolved through skillful negotiation. An “aggressive,” “in your face” approach may not always be either effective or productive.
Effective, competent representation draws not only on aggressive trial skills, but also on skillful negotiation. Good negotiation begins from a position of strength. Our skilled investigators, our attention to detail, our thorough and exhaustive trial preparation and — most important — our personal commitment are what we promise to each of our clients. However, in some theft crime cases, trial is the only option for protecting our clients’ rights and future.
