Experienced Theft & Fraud Defense Lawyer

Theft and fraud charges are some of the most damaging charges to one’s reputation. The accusation of being dishonest can have devastating and long-lasting effects on your future. In Minnesota, theft crime charges are determined by the value of the stolen goods. If you are charged with stealing less than $250 of goods/services, you will be charged with a misdemeanor. For goods/services between $250 - $500, you will be charged with a gross misdemeanor. Anything more than $500 and you will be facing charges of a felony.

In Addition To Fines:

You may face possible jail time and could pay restitution to victims. A conviction can be expensive. It’s best to fight the charges against you. Many times, theft and fraud charges can be reduced or even dismissed. We understand that your freedom and livelihood are at risk and will work with you through the entire process.
