Minnesota Theft Charges

Theft Defense Lawyers Minnesota

There are different levels of Minnesota theft charges. Which level a person is charged with depends on a number of factors, such as what was stolen, how it was stolen, and the value of the stolen property. Minnesota theft charges can be as simple as a shoplifting charge and as complicated as robbery or theft by swindle.

If you have been accused of any type of Minnesota theft crime, you do not have to sit back and accept the charges against you. Instead, you can secure the representation of a highly experienced Minnesota criminal defense lawyer who knows the law and how to use it and any evidence gathered in your case in your favor. Just because there may be merit to the charges against you doesn’t mean that you have to pay the maximum penalties.

Aggressive Minnesota Theft Defense

A theft conviction can lead to more than just jail or prison time or fines and restitution. It leads to a criminal record that follows you around for the long-term. This potentially means having difficulty finding a job, finding a place to live, going back to school, or doing anything that may require you to have a background check before you do it.

Common types of Minnesota theft charges include:

The list can go on and on. Any time that a person is stolen from by any means, it is considered some type of theft. While burglary can be considered along the lines of a property crime and robbery a violent crime if a weapon is involved, many others do not involve any violence at all.

What Our Client's are Saying:

  • When I was injured at work and the insurance company denied my claim, I didn’t know what I was going to do. I had medical bills mounting, no income, and three children to take care of. Josh helped me understand the process, how long it would take, and in the end, he got all my medical bills paid and got me paid for my injury. In one of the worst times in my life, it helped to able to count on an attorney who understands the law and who was on my side every step of the way.

  • I got injured when a piece of sheet rock fell on my back. The insurance company doctor said my herniated disc was age related and not because of what fell on my back. The attorneys at Arechigo & Stokka, got me paid until we had to go to court, and in the end got all my bills paid and more. I cannot thank them enough.

  • My car crash was one of the worst things that ever happened to me. The insurance company wanted me to settle my case right away without speaking to an attorney. Friends told me I didn’t need an attorney. After months of trying to do things on my own, I knew I need to obtain the advice of an attorney. I am so glad I did. Josh and John helped me get all my bills paid and get compensated for all I went through with my injury.

  • John represented me so well during my case. Being from a private firm made a difference, he was able to timely respond to my questions throughout and was always available any time day or night. John was always very well prepared and hard working. I highly recommend his assistance as a defense attorney

  • John was very helpful throughout the whole process, kept me up to date and informed on all aspects of the case and we achieved the desired successful result.

  • John and I have worked as opposing counsel in the past and I have observed his work in court many times. John is a highly skilled trial lawyer and I endorse him.
