Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a theft lawyer cost?

Every case is unique. Depending on the charges you’re facing, we’ll be able to provide an estimated cost of representation. Contact us for your free and confidential consultation.

How will you defend me against theft and property crime charges?

Without knowing the specifics of your case, it’s impossible to tell you what your strategy might look like. However, using his experience as a former prosecutor, Craig Russell may challenge evidence to have it excluded, question whether a search was legal, seek out exculpatory evidence, or pursue a variety of other legal strategies to help you win your case.

Should I plead guilty to the theft charges against me?

Most criminal cases end in some form of plea agreement. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean you should plead guilty at the outset of your case. If you’ve been charged with theft or a property crime, contact us to discuss your case and learn more about your options.

I’m a first-time offender. Can you help?

Yes! Depending on the charge, as a first-time offender, there may be legal strategies to pursue that wouldn’t be available if you were a repeat offender. Craig Russell looks at the facts of every case (including your past criminal record) when creating a legal strategy designed to get the best possible outcome for you. But if you have been convicted of a property crime in the past, let us know.
