      Buffalo Theft Attorneys

      Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyers Protecting Against Shoplifting, Theft and Larceny Charges in New York

      When it comes to theft crimes, the State of New York doesn’t play around. And unfortunately for you, simply being charged with crimes like shoplifting, possessing stolen property, embezzlement, identity theft, or fraud is enough for many Buffalo employers to terminate you on the spot – ending promising careers before you even have a chance to defend yourself. Things can be even worse for immigrants working their way to permanent residency or citizenship, and students relying on scholarships or loans to complete their higher education.

        Mr. Ranzenhofer and his attorneys were great! My case was handled quickly and I got a great result – $300,000. I fell at my doctor’s office, so I knew it was a hard case. Mr. Ranzenhofer developed a strategy that got me a great result. I highly recommend Mr. Ranzenhofer and his team of attorneys.

        We were treated in a respectful, professional and helpful manner while preparing our wills, healthcare proxies and power of attorney. Mr. Friedman took as much time as we needed to answer all of our questions and concerns. His staff was friendly and efficient. We highly recommend him.

Justin was diligent, tenacious, professional, and clearly dedicated to assisting me, all of which led to a very positive outcome. I was very impressed with his work and I highly recommend his office.

        When it comes to theft crimes, the State of New York doesn’t play around. And unfortunately for you, simply being charged with crimes like shoplifting, possessing stolen property, embezzlement, identity theft, or fraud is enough for many Buffalo employers to terminate you on the spot – ending promising careers before you even have a chance to defend yourself. Things can be even worse for immigrants working their way to permanent residency or citizenship, and students relying on scholarships or loans to complete their higher education.

        And that’s all before you’ve been convicted. Innocent until proven guilty? Not when it comes to professional certifications, employment, and more, when you’re facing theft and larceny charges.

        Have you been arrested for a theft crime in Buffalo? If so, understand that you need help from our experienced Buffalo theft attorneys who know how to defend you in court – and the best ways to navigate the legal process to protect you rights today, and for your future. There is so much riding on the decisions you make right now. We can help.

        At Friedman & Ranzenhofer, we have been fighting battles in Buffalo courts for five decades, and have more than 20 years of experience as prosecutors. This means that we know the players in the Buffalo court system, and we know how the prosecution will build its case, what elements need to be proven, and how best to craft a defense that rebuts the charges against you and makes sense to a jury.

        Buffalo Theft Attorneys With Over 70 Years of Combined Experience

        But we know that for many of our clients, the time, expense, and inherent risks of a jury trial are more than they and their families can accept. At Friedman & Ranzenhofer, our Buffalo theft attorneys work with you to understand not only the case at hand, but also the particulars of your life. When avoiding a trial is best, and productive negotiations with the prosecution can result in an outcome that leaves you able to work, be with your family, and live your life, we’ll fight to achieve that.

        From reduced charges to alternative sentencing approaches, we’ve built excellent reputations in the legal community for consistently delivering for our clients. We can never promise a particular resolution in a case, but proudly stand behind our record of success, and the appreciation of clients we’ve helped in the past.
