Buffalo Theft Attorneys
Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyers Protecting Against Shoplifting, Theft and Larceny Charges in Western 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.
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.
