Camden County NJ Theft and Fraud Lawyer
Criminal Defense Attorney with Offices in Collingswood, New Jersey
A theft or fraud charge can happen to anyone. It’s possible that you didn’t even mean to take an item or defraud another person. Nonetheless, you now find yourself in a frightening situation because NJ prosecutors don’t hesitate to seek maximum punishments for theft crimes. If you are convicted of a theft offense, you could be looking at serious prison time, heavy fines, civil penalties, and a permanent criminal record. Worse yet, the damage to your reputation and your career could be devastating. If you are convicted of a “crime of moral turpitude,” you may find yourself unable to maintain or even apply for certain jobs in the future. And if you are not a U.S. citizen, you may find yourself facing deportation for even a minor theft conviction.
It’s possible that the only chance you have of beating your criminal charges is to hire an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer. We can help you. The criminal defense lawyers at the Law Offices of Leonard D. Biddison have almost 40 years of combined experience.
