At Aidala Bertuna & Kamins PC, we defend people who have been accused of theft crimes, along with other property-related charges. Give us a call today to discuss your specific case. You can reach our firm at 212-486-0011. We have offices in Brooklyn and Manhattan and serve clients throughout the New York City area.
There are many different kinds of property crimes, from passing a few bad checks or taking money from an employer (embezzlement) to complex schemes of fraud. Punishment also varies widely according to the value of what was taken.
There is obviously a big difference between a charge of shoplifting (petty theft) and a more serious charge like burglary, car theft or robbery. We tailor our representation accordingly, always with a plan in mind to assert your rights effectively.
Not all property crimes involve theft. Our lawyers also defend individuals charged with breaking and entering, vandalism and arson.
We employ a variety of defenses in theft crimes. Some of these include:
We examine evidence, including police reports, witness statements and more. When we are sure of the facts of the case, we fashion a defense strategy to minimize negative consequences to you that arise from these charges. In some cases, we negotiate an optimal deal with the prosecution; in others, we go to trial with a plan to attack the prosecution’s case. However, we never make a decision without consulting you first.
