Some theft charges, such as petty theft or shoplifting, are misdemeanors and can lead to lighter punishments than a conviction for felony theft, such as grand larceny, robbery, burglary or embezzlement. Any type of criminal conviction, however, has the potential to be a drag on your life even after you complete your sentence. For all types of theft charges, you can come to me, criminal defense attorney Luigi Vigliotti. My Garden City law firm serves clients throughout Long Island (Nassau and Suffolk counties), New York City and Upstate. With years of experience on both sides of criminal cases, I can put my knowledge and skills to work for you.

Theft Charges Can Be Enhanced When Weapons Are Involved

If you are arrested on theft charges that you allegedly committed with a loaded weapon, such as armed robbery, it is likely that you will face enhanced charges. This could mean many more years in prison if you are convicted.

With any theft crime, I can get to work quickly on an investigation. I will:

  • Interview witnesses to find if there are any inconsistencies in anyone’s account
  • Determine if police had probable cause to arrest you
  • Exploit any weaknesses in the government’s case

As a seasoned trial lawyer with experience in criminal defense and prosecution, I know how to fully prepare for cases like these and anticipate any sudden developments. I am dedicated to your success; I will always be prepared to provide you with the strongest defense possible.
