NYC Property Crime And Theft Lawyer
Robbery, burglary, larceny and other forms of theft can affect your prospects for employment, carry heavy jail sentences and even result in deportation if you are convicted. They also can be a challenge to prosecute as the police do not always follow proper procedures in gathering and preserving evidence against you. If you have been accused of any theft-related offense, the
Law Offices of Michael V. Cibella, LLC, a New York City criminal defense law firm, can offer the knowledge and diligence required to challenge and overcome the prosecution’s case against you.
Manhattan Robbery Attorney With Prosecution Experience
People from all walks of life can be accused of simple shoplifting, but the collateral consequences of a conviction can be severe and permanent, including the loss of employment, securities licenses or residence in the United States. On the other hand, those charged with crimes like robbery, burglary and grand larceny of a vehicle face severe jail sentences and must refute the often powerful in-court identifications of the accuser. We have over 15 years of experience handling property theft offenses from both sides of the courtroom, including:
- Grand larceny
- Petit larceny or shoplifting
- Possession of stolen property
- Identity theft
lawyers will carefully review all police reports and prior testimony to identify procedural illegalities or mistakes. We will examine all forms of evidence against you, including fingerprints, DNA, and video surveillance and work with forensic experts to reveal the unreliability of such evidence. Through thoughtful and well-planned cross-examination, we will work to expose potential issues such as mistaken identity or statements coerced by the police.
