New Jersey Theft Charges Attorney

Aggressive New Jersey Criminal Defense Lawyer Helps Clients Charged with Theft Crimes in Camden County, Gloucester County, Atlantic County, and Throughout NJ

Any time NJ law enforcement officials believe you took something of value from another person, you could find yourself facing serious theft-related charges in New Jersey. However, these crimes often involve a considerable amount of hearsay and to be convicted of any theft you must be proven guilty of all elements of the offense. This means that the prosecutor must prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Experienced Camden County criminal defense lawyer Jill R. Cohen knows that theft charges, including charges for shoplifting, often arise out of a mistake or a misunderstanding. For more than 30 years, Ms. Cohen has defended people charged with theft crimes, including robbery, burglary, and embezzlement, in Camden, Cherry Hill, Gloucester Township, Voorhees, West Deptford, Atlantic City, and everywhere else in South Jersey. Attorney Cohen is a former assistant Camden County prosecutor and assistant Philadelphia district attorney, so she knows how the other side builds theft cases and will put her knowledge and experience to work defending you against your theft charges.

Serious Theft Crime Charges in NJ Require Serious Legal Representation

The circumstances of how and why you have been accused of, arrested for, or charged with theft are less important at this time than taking immediate action to protect your rights. An experienced Franklin Township criminal defense attorney with a zeal for protecting the accused is your best ally. Ms. Cohen knows how to poke holes in the prosecutor’s case by working tirelessly to obtain the best outcome possible for you. Many New Jersey theft cases can ultimately be dismissed.

You can rely on Ms. Cohen to negotiate for the following on your behalf:

  • Dismissal of the case
  • Reducing the charges
  • Probation instead of jail time
  • No prison time or reduced jail time
  • Restitution in lieu of conviction

Whether your charges arose out of a misunderstanding or more deliberate actions, the circumstances of how and why you or a loved one were charged with alleged theft should not be your focus now. Ms. Cohen will focus on taking immediate action on your behalf to protect your rights.

“Theft” itself is a broad concept that may include any of the following alleged offenses:

  • Shoplifting
  • Breaking and entering
  • Auto theft
  • Robbery
  • Armed robbery
  • Burglary
  • White collar crimes, including fraud or forgery
  • Embezzlement
