Experience Handling a Variety of Theft Crimes

The concept of theft or stealing is very simple for most people to understand: taking something of someone else's and attempting to make it your own without permission. However, there are many different types of theft crimes. As a Fort Wayne theft defense attorney, I represent clients charged with theft crimes in Indiana at the state level, including:

  • Shoplifting
  • Conversion
  • Breaking and entering
  • Trespassing
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Check forgery
  • Misuse of credit cards
  • Fraud


Depending on the facts of your particular case, the charge you face could range from a minor misdemeanor to a serious felony. I represent clients at both the misdemeanor and felony levels.

As both a criminal prosecutor and a public defender in the criminal courts, I'm familiar with the criminal justice system as a whole and can help my clients through this process, whether it be by plea agreement or by trial.
