Building Comprehensive Strategies For Fraud And Theft Charges

Theft and other financial crime charges often arise out of a mistake or a misunderstanding. However, it can be difficult to explain the situation from your perspective. Working with a compassionate advocate can help you make your voice heard.

As an experienced Camden County criminal defense lawyer, I am on a mission to set the record straight for you. For more than 30 years, I have defended people charged with theft and fraud crimes in New Jersey. You can depend on me to put my knowledge and experience to work defending you against criminal charges at The Law Office of Jill R. Cohen.

Financial And Theft Crimes Carry High Stakes

Any time New Jersey law enforcement officials believe you took something of value from another person, you could find yourself facing serious theft-related charges in New Jersey.

Theft, fraud and financial crimes may include:

  • Shoplifting
  • Breaking and entering
  • Auto theft
  • Robbery or armed robbery
  • Burglary
  • White collar crimes, including fraud or forgery
  • Embezzlement
  • Fraud involving credit cards
  • Writing bad checks

However, 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.

The circumstances of how and why accusations of financial crimes arose are less important at this time than taking immediate action to protect your rights. An experienced criminal defense attorney who is passionate about protecting you is your best ally. I understand how to respond for your defense during an investigation or after an arrest.

Dedicated To Finding The Best Path Forward

You can rely on me 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. I will focus on taking immediate action on your behalf to protect your rights. Many theft cases can ultimately be dismissed.

I am a former assistant prosecutor and assistant district attorney, so I understand how the other side builds theft cases. I know how to poke holes in the prosecutor’s case by working tirelessly to obtain the best outcome possible for you.
