Arrested On Theft Charges? Call Me In Lafayette.

A person who is facing theft charges has been charged with taking something that does not belong to him or her. Therefore, theft charges can arise from many types of situations. As a defense attorney, I am knowledgeable about the many ways in which theft charges can be brought. I am devoted to reaching the best possible outcome for you, given the specific charges you face.

Theft charges can include retail theft, corporate embezzlement, credit card fraud and car theft. Whatever type of defense you require, contact me, a St. Martin Parish corporate embezzlement attorney, today. At the law firm of Donald D. Cleveland, APLC, in Lafayette, Louisiana, my legal practice is built on professionalism, integrity and compassion.

Motives For Theft Crimes

I know that times are hard for many people, and I know that a lot of people commit theft as a means to survive. For example, poverty and hunger can compel otherwise honest individuals to steal for their families. Or, people who suffer from drug and/or alcohol addictions can take drastic measures to feed their addiction. I understand the nature of people and what a desperate situation can do to someone’s judgment.
