Do not face theft charges alone. Get an experienced defense attorney by your side.
Have you been charged in Gwinnett county or the surrounding areas for a theft crime? Whatever mistakes you may have made, it’s extremely important that the choices you make today reflect your desire to avoid conviction and stay out of jail.
Hire an experienced attorney who can represent you forcefully and safeguard your interests and rights throughout the legal process.

If you’re convicted of a theft crime, you can face anywhere from 6 months in jail to 10 years in state prison, and be stuck with a misdemeanor or felony record for the rest of your life. Do not chance these outcomes.
