Theft Under 100 Dollars
There are a variety of ways to properly defend a theft case, and the first thing that our experienced criminal lawyers do is to try to get the case dropped before anyone ever steps foot in court. We will speak with the state’s attorneys as soon as we are hired, with the ultimate goal of convincing them that they simply will not be able to prove their case at trial. No lawyer should ever guarantee they would produce a specific outcome, as this is unethical and just plain dishonest. But Benjamin Herbst will do everything in his power to achieve a nolle pros or a dismissal. The firm’s two main goals are to avoid convictions and jail time at all costs. While a dismissal is the best possible way to accomplish these goals, there are other positive outcomes in criminal cases. Having the state agree to place the case on the STET docket is one example. Typically in this scenario the case will be closed and placed on the inactive docket, but can be brought back for a dismissal if the defendant satisfies a certain condition. In theft cases this condition is typically paying restitution.
We also understand that many defendants are wrongly charged with theft, and therefore we prepare every case for trial. Benjamin never convinces his clients to plea guilty to crimes they didn’t commit; the extra work that trial entails is never a concern. He will happily fight for your rights or for a loved one at trial, and enjoys taking on the state’s witnesses in order to protect his client’s rights. The Herbst Firm is available 24 hours a day, and we offer free consultations for all criminal cases. The firm also offers flexible payment plans so none of our potential clients have to wait to hire an attorney.
