Theft allegations are not just about the dollar amount. Stealing is viewed as a moral breach and an invasion of privacy. Potential employers look at a theft conviction and see a person who cannot be trusted.
If you are suspected of or charged with a theft or burglary, it is in your best interest to fight the allegations or "make it go away." That is where Douglas A. Ball, Attorney at Law, can help. Our legal team provides experienced criminal defense in Clermont County and nearby communities of Ohio.
From 25-plus years as a criminal defense lawyer, Douglas A. Ball knows how damaging a theft conviction can be. He has experience with the full spectrum of charges, both misdemeanor and felony:
Shoplifting and petty theft
Theft and grand theft
Credit card fraud and identity theft
Burglary of a business or residence
Breaking and entering
Simple robbery (theft by force)
Armed robbery (robbery with a deadly weapon)
We explore opportunities to dismiss the charges, such as restitution, or deferred adjudication to keep the conviction off your permanent record. When necessary, we will go to trial to avoid a conviction, especially when our clients' freedom, employment, or professional license hangs in the balance.
We understand that pleading guilty as charged is no option. We are confident we can improve the outcome. For experienced theft crime defense, call our Batavia office today or contact us online to arrange a free initial consultation.
