Aggressive Property Crimes Defense

While not as serious as crimes against a person, individuals who commit property crimes, such as theft, face a host of substantial penalties that increase depending upon the severity of the offense. Knowing what to do when charged with these crimes is essential to finding a way to possibly minimize the consequences you may be facing if you are eventually convicted of theft or related offense.

At the Law Office of Jack Kotchick, we understand the way the criminal justice system in New York operates. Our lawyer, Jack Kotchick, has more than 30 years of criminal law experience, on both sides of the issue. Mr. Kotchick served as a prosecutor for several years before starting his criminal defense practice, and he is focused on providing you with a comprehensive defense in your case.

We can help defend against a number of theft-related charges, including:

  • Petit theft
  • Grand larceny
  • Shoplifting
  • Burglary
  • Breaking and entering
  • Robbery
  • Possession of stolen property

Many of these charges will result in jail time if you are convicted of the offense, as well as fines and restitution costs. You might feel embarrassed about the arrest and wish to talk to police and prosecutors in an effort to make things right. If you talk to them without an attorney present, you are placing yourself in a very dangerous position.

Until you have an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side, you cannot be sure that your rights are being protected. Police gather evidence for prosecutors to use against you, and their goal is to obtain a conviction or guilty plea. They are not going to provide you with options unless you have someone working for you who knows how the system works. We will fight for you, and help you determine the best approach to take for your case.
