We Know How To Defend Against These Charges
Dummier Young LLC has handled the full spectrum of charges, including:
- Credit card fraud
- Bad checks and forgery
- Auto theft
- Destruction of property
- Embezzlement (stealing from an employer)
- Fraud and white collar crimes
Property crime charges can range from misdemeanors to serious felonies. The charges are based on the value of the property in question and other factors such as prior crimes. The penalties can include jail or prison, heavy fines and a criminal record that may affect jobs, college, housing, lending and more. The victims of property crimes may also pursue a separate civil action for reimbursement.
We explore the possible defenses to theft, fraud or burglary charges. Did police charge the wrong person? Was there criminal intent? Were you unlawfully detained or subject to an illegal search? Our goal is to put this episode behind you with the least impact on your life and your future. Sometimes we can get the charges dismissed or negotiate restitution in lieu of prosecution. Sometimes we can reduce or eliminate jail time. When necessary, we will go to trial to fight for your freedom and clear your name.
