A Theft Charge Can Rob You Of Your Future

Accusations of theft can result from a number of different circumstances. Even a misunderstanding between neighbors or accidentally walking out of a store with an item in your pocket can become a huge legal problem.

I am attorney Matthew Maddox of The Maddox Law Firm in McKinney, Texas, and I want to help you resolve your case as quickly as possible, with the minimum possible damage to your reputation and your future.

What Is Theft?

Theft includes a number of different crimes. In essence, you have to deprive someone else of their property with no intention of returning it. The penalty you face depends on the value of the stolen property, the circumstances of the crime and any previous criminal history you may have.

Some of the most common theft charges I handle include:

  • Shoplifting
  • Misdemeanor theft
  • Felony theft
  • Burglary or robbery
  • Credit card abuse
  • Theft of precious metals
  • Forgery and bad check charges
  • Unauthorized use of a motor vehicle

Being charged with a theft can be traumatic and embarrassing, especially for young people who may have made a simple mistake while they are in college. I treat every client with respect and dignity, and I handle every case with care. I never make judgments.
