Los Angeles Theft Crime Lawyer
Criminal Attorneys For Any Type Of Theft Offense
Whether the economy is in a good place or on shaky ground, police, prosecutors and the courts will severely prosecute those who are arrested for theft crimes. The reason criminal defense attorneys in large cities are highly sought after is because in a city with so many "haves" and "have nots," theft is a serious issue throughout the city.

Types of Theft Crime Offenses
Whether you are in Van Nuys, Glendale or some other part of Los Angeles, theft crime laws can provide severe punishment. Jail time, penalties, restitution, loss of career opportunities and more are all potential penalties a judge could send your way. Theft crimes in Los Angeles include robbery,
carjacking, larceny, identity theft,
grand theft auto,
petty theft, shoplifting,
receiving stolen property, and more. Our criminal defense lawyers also understand a number of white collar theft crimes, which can include wire fraud. Theft encompasses more than just pick pockets or Oceans 11 type crimes. Young people, the elderly and everyone in between can face years in prison for being convicted of a theft crime.
Understanding Different Forms Of Theft Charges
One item many people misunderstand are the different definitions of theft. Petty theft involves stealing another person's property with the total amount adding up to no more than $400. Grand theft would be any crime that involves theft of $400 or more. Your criminal defense attorney will understand that the penalties will be more severe for a grand theft conviction than for petty theft, so figuring out the value of items might be important. For example, stealing a 2 year old i Phone should have a lower value than stealing a new i Phone, but only a skilled lawyer will understand how important it is to know this value.
