Theft and Fraud

Theft charges may vary in from the simplest shoplifting charge to very sophisticated fraud or theft from employer charges, commonly known as “white collar crime”. If you are under investigation or charged with a theft or fraud offence, you need to get experienced legal advice.

Depending on the case, the evidence presented against you may include store detectives’ statements, surveillance videos, forensic accounting reports, banking records, the opinions of expert witnesses. More complex cases may involve search warrants relating to both physical places and computer records.

I have the knowledge and experience to assist you in making sense of the case against you. I can guide you through the process and ensure that all your rights and freedoms are protected.

Theft and Fraud cases often require challenges to the admissibility of certain pieces of evidence which may be central to the case against you. I will explain these issues to you as we prepare a strategy.

It may not be necessary to take every case to trial. I pride myself on taking a flexible approach to handling theft and fraud cases and ensuring that you are aware of all of the options available. I am frequently able to resolve matters without going to trial and without the imposition of a criminal record.

The consequences of a criminal record for theft or fraud may dramatically impede your ability to obtain or maintain employment, and as such it is vital to get the advice you need as early as possible.
