Facing Charges of Shoplifting
At the law office of Darren Meyer, we represent clients charged with shoplifting, defined as the taking or concealing of merchandise. If the value of the property is over $200, you could be facing felony charges. We immediately secure witness statements, review any surveillance video and study your criminal record. From there, we fight for the best outcome. For first offenders, the charges of shoplifting could be dismissed or reduced to trespassing.
A Bad Check Can Become an Even Worse Criminal Matter
A bounced check is a common oversight. However, if you are charged with deliberately writing a check on a closed account or one with known insufficient funds, you could be facing serious penalties. Lack of a prior record can help. Repaying the victim might get your case dismissed. You need an attorney who will facilitate communication with the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Career-Ending and Life-Altering Charges of Embezzlement
Accusations of embezzlement from your employer can end your career and your freedom. In many cases we handle, we find that multiple employees had access to funds. A poorly operating computer system may be the culprit as well. Those nuances require an experienced and creative criminal defense.
