Shoplifting Accusations in Bergen, Hudson, & Passaic Counties

Contact an Englewood Criminal Defense Lawyer

The law does not take such a lenient view of retail theft, and views all shoplifting, from "prankish" shoplifting to carefully executed retail larceny, as serious theft crimes. Legal penalties vary based on the amount of merchandise stolen, and may result in jail time and expensive fines. If you have been accused of stealing from a retailer, you need an experienced Bergen County shoplifting defense lawyer to help fight your charges and protect your rights.

Retail theft is a serious crime that requires a serious defense. Contact attorney Liebowitz online to schedule an appointment to discuss your situation.
