Grand Theft Lawyers Fighting to Protect Your Freedom

Grand Theft is the unlawful seizure of someone's property with the motive to deprive the owner of his or her assets permanently. Grand Theft is considered a felony offense and this charge is usually filed when the value of the property stolen is more than a certain dollar amount, usually $400.00. In most jurisdictions, you can face over a year in state prison, excessive fines and a lengthy probation in most cases. Repeat offenders are often prosecuted with much harsher penalties and that is why you it is so important to have a skilled grand theft attorney defending you.

An experienced grand theft lawyer may be able to reduce a grand theft offense down to a lesser offense such as petty theft, if the right defense are presented and accepted. For example, you cannot be convicted of grand theft if the "victim" gives you the property willingly. Often times someone will lend property to an individual, then later become angry with that individual for one reason or another and this will result in the lender claiming to authorities that the property was stolen. If this is the case, our grand theft lawyers can look into the background of the accuser and determine whether they have a history of false allegations or a criminal record which may question their character. If there are any witnesses to testify that the property was loaned, not stolen, we can use these testimonies to our advantage. Terani Law Firm's grand theft defense attorneys have been able to beat many tough cases using this method and many others.

Even if the property was not given with consent, there are many ways to prevent those accused of grand theft from going to jail. Not every criminal defense attorney is able to defend grand theft allegations effectively. However, our experienced grand theft attorneys will be able to explore potential defenses other criminal defense attorneys may overlook, such as whether the defendant suffers from impulse control problems, which is a mental illness that demands counseling and therapy rather than extensive jail time. If the accused steals a product out of financial necessity, an aggressive and skilled grand theft lawyer will be able to relate this hardship to the judge and depict the defendant as a human being placed in difficult circumstances just trying to survive, not a common criminal looking to get something for free at the expense of an innocent victim.

If the evidence linking you to the property stolen was obtained illegally we may be able to have that evidence found inadmissible (or thrown out) as “fruit of the poisonous tree”. Often times the police are ruthless and overly aggressive with trying to obtain evidence and confessions and this often leads to them violating constitutional rights. If the arresting officers did not go through proper protocols and they have a history of misconduct, their background can be brought into question. We are not afraid to butt heads with the District Attorney’s office, judge or investigating officers to get you the best possible outcome. We never want to have any of our clients see the inside of a jail cell and will do anything within our power to prevent that. When you or someone you love is accused of a serious felony and are facing prison time, we understand what a nightmare it can be. We've guided many families and individuals through these hard times and have provided not only peace of mind, but amazing end results that often times include dismissal of the charges or no jail time.
