Defending Clients Accused of Serious Theft Charges
If you have been accused of stealing more than $950 worth of money or property, you may be charged with grand theft, which under certain circumstances is considered a felony under California law. You need an experienced defense attorney to protect your rights.
At The Law Office of Charles B. Smith, we have helped many clients fight felony theft charges. San Mateo felony theft lawyer Charles B. Smith — a former prosecutor and former police officer — has more than 25 years of experience in the California criminal justice system.
Pursuing Every Available Option for Obtaining a Positive Outcome
The prospect of going to prison on a theft charge can be intimidating. Even if you do not get a prison sentence, you could lose your job after being convicted of a theft offense, and a felony criminal record could affect your employment prospects for the rest of your life.
Our firm provides aggressive, compassionate criminal defense representation to clients who have been charged with grand theft and other serious property crimes.
While we cannot guarantee any specific results in your case, our individualized approach to legal representation and careful investigation of every case have, in many cases, helped us identify opportunities to defeat our clients' charges at trial or get them dismissed or reduced.
