Paterson NJ Theft Defense Lawyers

Charges relating to taking or destroying property often hinge upon a victim’s testimony to police and prosecution. Damaging testimony from the victim may lead to harsh penalties that can dramatically impact your future. When charged with theft or destroying property, it is important to contact a lawyer as quickly as possible to begin the process of drafting the best possible defense against the penalties stemming from a conviction. A seasoned attorney can immediately undertake efforts to mitigate and/or appease an alleged victim so that damages and related testimony is minimized.
