Queens Theft & Robbery Defense Attorneys

Let Our Criminal Defense Experts Protect You

If you’ve been arrested for theft or robbery in Queens, you need good legal help, and fast. The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, P.C., have years of experience protecting the rights of people just like you, accused of theft or robbery in Queens and New York City.

Under New York law, theft is very serious, and it can permanently impact your life if convicted. Even a first conviction for Petit Larceny can land you in a jail for a year; if you have any criminal history or there were aggravating circumstances to the alleged crime, the penalties can be much more severe.

Don’t take chances. Even if you think the value of what was allegedly stolen is insignificant, or if you were stopped for shoplifting by store security and signed an agreement with the retailer, you need to protect yourself from potential consequences. You may still receive notice of civil actions stemming from the “confession,” and even worse, the retailer may go back on its word and use the document as evidence in criminal proceedings.

Whatever the circumstances, theft or robbery charges are big problems for you and have the potential to impact the rest of your life. If convicted, not only will you likely serve time, but future job prospects and educational opportunities may be off limits to you. Don’t take the chance.

The best thing you can do for yourself is to hire experienced, tough attorneys who will represent your best interests in every proceeding related to the case. In many instances, retaining counsel is enough to cause retailers to back off. In others, good lawyers are absolutely vital in fighting for your freedom in court.
