When you have been accused of a theft, burglary, shoplifting or any other crime in or around Houston, your best chance for success is working with a knowledgeable attorney skilled in the defense of Houston theft charges.
In Texas, theft charges can cover a wide range of activities from shoplifting to armed robbery. The severity of the crime and the value of goods or services allegedly taken will determine whether the state decides to file misdemeanor or felony charges against you.
At the Gilligan Law Firm we aggressively represent individuals who have been accused of theft, burglary, and other property crimes. Our Houston theft charge defense is designed to protect our clients with tough, smart representation for misdemeanor and felony charges.
When defending a theft or robbery case, we carefully examine the details of the alleged offense for weak points. There may be factual issues relating to your intent to possess the property or consent to use the property. The value of the property may be disputable or difficult to accurately determine. The prosecutor may not have solid, undisputable evidence as to your identity as it relates to the alleged charges. Hire an experienced criminal defense attorney who knows how to locate and expose any points of weakness in the charges that have been filed against you.
The Gilligan Law Firm handles all theft cases including:
- Grand theft auto
- Armed robbery
- Bank robbery
If you are a suspect in a theft or burglary case, consult with a qualified lawyer as soon as possible. Do not wait until you are indicted to begin formulating your defense. The consequences of theft and burglary charges can range from fines and community service to jail and even prison terms.
