A theft is committed any time a person “exercises control over the property of another without that person’s effective consent.” The rules and factual circumstances associated with theft and burglary are very technical. Fortunately, it is usually the case that we can use those technicalities to your advantage.  We will aggressively pursue every loophole to ensure your freedom. 


A conviction for domestic assault carries severe consequences.  Most convictions result in a jail sentence and every conviction results in a permanent impairment of your gun ownership rights. Our office understands what is at stake for you.

Our success rate for domestic assault is outstanding.
