What kind of attorney would consider defeat as a first option? Not the kind that you want on your side.

Mike Norris and John Callahan, don't back down, no matter how strong the evidence against you may be. Our first option is to beat the case. You can be certain that we will look for every opportunity to get your case dismissed. We will dig through every nook and cranny looking for opportunities to win. If negotiations with the prosecution fail, we will be ready to take the matter to the next level. We are serious about getting positive results.

Seeking Dismissal: The most important thing for many of our clients charged with theft is to try to keep their record clean. Many attorneys will try to end the case quickly by pleading their client guilty for probation. We are patient and do not take the easy way out. We have represented people charged with felony theft, both employees and nonemployees, and we have had many charges dismissed.

Diversionary Programs: Another alternative is (sometimes) a diversionary program called theft school. This program allows the defendant to obtain counseling and a couple of classes and once successfully completed the felony charges are dropped. Theft school is 99 percent of the time a result of a misdemeanor charge - we have obtained theft school and subsequent dismissal of charges in felony cases.

Further, we have even represented a police officer charged with retail theft. Despite the fact that the video showed him removing items from a store, the judge found our client not guilty after the trial. Sometimes the security staff do not come across as professional (they are often referred to as rent-a-cops.) In that case, the judge found it important that all of the guard's training in loss prevention amounted to two days in a class.

Our lawyers are ready to take on all types of felony theft and grand larceny charges. Whether you have been accused of stealing from a department store, electronics store, grocery store or anyplace else, we are on your side. Frequently, we turn to investigators and experts to strengthen our case.

In addition to handling felony theft charges, our team can take on challenges involving employee theft, also known as embezzlement. You can count on us to defend you, no matter what you've been charged with.
