Some Common Theft Crimes in South Jersey include:
- Armed Robbery/Burglary
- Breaking and Entering
- Car Jacking
- Credit Card Theft
- Fraud/Identity Theft
- Receiving Stolen Property
In defending those accused of theft crimes, our team often finds that defendants have complicated their situation by also engaging in actions and creating circumstances that have led to additional charges, such as resisting arrest, drug possession, or assault and battery.
If arrested, you’ll be given your Miranda warning, in which you’re informed that you have the right to remain silent and to see a lawyer before being questioned. You’ll also be told that you have the right to have your lawyer present during questioning.
We work with you to develop the best strategy and defense possible. We are aggressive in defending those accused of crimes of theft and will be dedicated to ensuring that you receive due process of law and be dealt with fairly through every part of the judicial process.
