Bay Area Theft / Property Crimes Lawyer

If you have been charged with any type of theft related crime, hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney is essential for a successful outcome.  James Harwood defends clients who have been charged with:
  • Petty Theft and Shoplifting
  • Grand Theft
  • Auto Theft
  • Residential Burglary
  • Commercial Burglary
  • Possession of Stolen Property
  • Embezzlement
  • Identity Theft
  • All other theft charges
The consequences of suffering a theft conviction can stay with you for life.  It is possible for a person to be charged with a felony for petty theft if that person has previously been convicted of theft crimes.  Some theft related crimes are categorized as strike offenses, meaning a conviction can cause future felony sentences to be doubled, or even a life sentence for future felony convictions. 

Many alternatives exist for people charged with theft crimes, which may prevent them from suffering convictions or serving any jail time.  Many clients qualify for diversion or differed entry of judgment.  For those charged with a more serious theft related charge, it may be possible to convince the District Attorney to reduce the charges to less serious ones.  Only an experienced criminal attorney can accurately assess your case and advise you what options exist.  Call the Law Office of James W. Harwood today for a free consultation.
