Because of the broad nature of Arizona theft laws, it’s possible to be charged with theft as the result of an honest misunderstanding.

If you’ve been charged with or accused of theft, you should immediately schedule a consultation with a criminal defense attorney in Phoenix, AZ. Your best interests are our main concern, so don’t hesitate to learn what we can do to get your charges dropped or your case dismissed.
