Theft Crimes


Even Minor Shoplifting Charges Are Serious

A theft charge can range from an accusation of embezzling thousands of dollars to an allegation that a teenager stole jeans from a store. Serious theft charges such as embezzlement can result in hefty fines, prison time and other stiff consequences, but even minor shoplifting charges can have significant consequences that last for years.

If you or a loved one is charged with theft — any theft — contact the Fort Worth theft defense attorneys at the Schneider Law Firm, P.C., today. We understand the consequences that can result from even shoplifting charges and will work to find a resolution for your case that reduces the damages.

Representation for Misdemeanor and Felony Theft

Our attorneys represent people who are charged with both felony theft, meaning the amount alleged stolen is greater than $1,500, and misdemeanor theft. Regardless of the amount, you can expect us to take your charge seriously. Having a conviction for even a minor shoplifting charge on your criminal record can make it difficult to get a job and cause other problems that follow you for years. A shoplifting charge can be particularly devastating for youthful offenders who are about to go to college or enter the workforce.

We provide the same aggressive, passionate, client-driven defense for theft crimes as we do for all our criminal charges. We will prepare your case for trial and then assess whether alternative resolutions may work better for your situation. For some first-time theft charges, we may be able to have the case dismissed or reduced so that it can be wiped off your record some day.
