Theft Representing People From All Walks of Life

Fort Wayne Theft Defense Attorneys

Do Not Let A Theft Conviction Impair Your Ability To Secure Employment

We are all aware of the main consequences of a criminal conviction: prison, fines and other issues. What many may not focus on is the damage a criminal record can have on their lives, especially a crime of dishonesty such as theft. Employers are utilizing background checks as standard procedure for a growing number of positions. If an employer sees a conviction for theft on a person's background check, the chances of that person being hired become very small.

One way to fight risk of a felony criminal record is to pursue a reduction in charges. We are strong negotiators, and we know how to aggressively and persuasively pursue a reduction in the charges our clients are facing. Also, we can advise you whether the crime can be expunged.
