We represent adults and juveniles accused of stealing merchandise from a store, taking cash or property from other citizens or stealing from an employer. At Law Office of Louis Schneider, we have had significant success in negotiating:

  • Dismissals of petty larceny charges if restitution is made
  • Assignment of minors to diversion programs that enable them to avoid a criminal record
  • Plea agreements for reduction of felony charges to the misdemeanor level

For felony theft charges, Nevada has a low threshold of just $250 or more in cash or property. Conviction on a felony theft or grand larceny charge can result in substantial jail time, mandatory restitution and other penalties, depending on your criminal history.  When building your defense against these serious charges, we thoroughly examine all evidence such as video surveillance, witnesses and informants. Our experience enables us to advise you on likely outcomes and what legal strategies may be effective in your case.

Charges of embezzlement — stealing substantial sums of money from an employer — require aggressive defense by an experienced attorney. We challenge the probable cause for arrest, credibility of informants, validity and execution of search warrants and paper trail conclusions drawn by prosecutors. If we can’t beat an embezzlement charge, Nevada Law Group advocates strongly for reduced penalties.  Contact a criminal defense attorney with the experience and skill to defend your rights in a theft, forgery, burglary or embezzlement case. If you find yourself charged with burglary, forgery, theft & embezzlement call our office today.
