Theft is one of the most misunderstood crimes in the entire field of criminal justice.  Most judges and prosecutors simply think that people steal because they are dishonest and greedy.  But this could not be further from the truth.  Crimes such as shoplifting are often tied into complex mental health issues such as depression or impulse control.  Most of the time shoplifters have the ability to pay for the items, and do not even need the things they are caught taking.  But the issues are much deeper, and we will work tirelessly to get the state and the judges to understand this.  Our clients are good people, with families and jobs, and one mistake should never define a person.  This is also true with juvenile theft and shoplifting cases.  Children and young adults often to not steal out of necessity, but rather due to other, deeper issues such as peer pressure and depression.  We have always believed that the best results are achieved in court when the judges and the state understand and view our clients as people, and not case numbers.  And this is regardless of whether your case is in district or circuit court.  Our drive to defend our clients is the same everywhere.  So if you have a theft case in Towson, Essex, Catonsville, or in any of the City court houses contact the Herbst Firm at 410-207-2598 for a free consultation

"Thank you for all the time and effort that you put into defending my case. You were willing to fight for me when nobody else would believe my story, and you did not back down from the prosecutor. Another lawyer would have urged me to plead guilty, but you were willing to fight for me, and in the end justice was served. I appreciate everything you did and wish you all the best." Fred D.
