Theft

Representation In A Range Of Theft Cases

The very term “theft” encompasses a broad scope of meanings, including white collar crimes as well as physical taking of property. In white collar crime scenarios, it is common to hear rumors of an investigation well before criminal charges are filed. This is the very best time to bring a defense lawyer into the picture.

Do not “wait and see what happens,” but rather, take control over your destiny by seeking prompt legal counsel. Call the Law Office of Scott N. Richardson at 561-471-9600 or send an email inquiry to schedule a consultation as soon as you have an idea you may be under suspicion for any kind of theft.
