Buffalo Shoplifting Defense Attorney
Anyone can make a mistake. If you have been accused of shoplifting, we can help you. Under New York law, shoplifting is considered a misdemeanor — called petit larceny — which can result in up to a year in jail, three years' probation, a $1,500 fine and a criminal record for the rest of your life. In many cases we are able to have the charges dismissed so that you will not have a criminal record or be on probation.
