Oshawa Property Offences Defence Lawyers
Shoplifting or minor theft may not seem like serious offences. However, the negative repercussions of such property offences convictions, regardless of severity, can be life-long.
The Oshawa firm of Affleck & Barrison LLP represents clients from across the Durham Region and points east of the Greater Toronto Area of Ontario charged with all types of property offences, from physical theft to robbery, as well as commercial and credit card fraud.
Comprehensive Defence Against Theft & Robbery Charges
If this is your first brush with the criminal justice system, you likely have many questions and fears about the future. We will take the time to review your case in detail and explain all your likely defence options, drawing upon our knowledge and practical experience gained in more than 20 years of practice. Our Oshawa lawyers defend against the following theft charges:
- Break-and-enter charges
- Possession of stolen goods
- Credit card fraud
- Identity theft
- Wide-scale commercial fraud
In some cases, we may be able to seek alternative sentencing such as court orders in place of criminal punishment. Each individual case will be determined on its own merits. We will meet with you to assess your individual case and to determine the best defence strategy to protect your rights and freedoms.
Repeat Theft Offences
We have experience representing clients who have previous criminal history of theft or other criminal offences. In such situations, there may be mandatory unavoidable penalties. If you are facing repeat offences, do not give up hope and do not attempt to fight these charges alone. With our years of experience in this area, we may be able to help you avoid a severe sentence. We will work with you to protect your long-term interest through diligent negotiation with the Crown. It pays to consult with a knowledgeable lawyer on your options, some you may not even know you had.
