If you would like to speak with a criminal defense attorney about your case and begin a proactive and aggressive defense, contact our law office to arrange for an initial consultation.

Tuscaloosa Theft Defense Lawyers ▪ Shoplifting ▪ Identity Theft ▪ Wire Fraud

We represent clients from the Tuscaloosa area charged with misdemeanors such as shoplifting or theft where the value of goods is less than $500 as well as felonies such as burglary or fraud involving amounts over $500. All of our clients receive the same level of vigorous defense: we evaluate the evidence, investigate the facts, analyze police procedures, negotiate with prosecutors and judges, and are determined advocates at trial, if necessary to protect your rights.

Crimes Involving a Weapon or the Use of Force

A simple theft such as purse snatching becomes the more serious crime of robbery if force is used. The use of a weapon in any theft enhances the minimum prison sentence by 10 years. Our theft defense lawyers have successfully negotiated pleas where the weapons enhancement was not applied in our clients' sentencing.

Identity Theft Crime

Credit card fraud, illegal possession of a credit card, 1st degree forgery (such as social security fraud), 2nd degree forgery (such as signing stolen checks), wire fraud, identity theft, and embezzlement are examples of what is commonly called "white collar crime" – crimes involving non-violent financial gain. Our lawyers have over 37 years of criminal defense experience and will assemble evidence and build a case designed to get the most favorable outcome of your case – whether through negotiation or trial.

We are committed to an aggressive defense for every client.
