Guiding You Through Theft and Fraud Crimes Accusations
Being charged with theft by shoplifting, theft by taking, and other theft and fraud crimes can have very serious consequences. At Cohen & Hirsch our lawyers take these charges very seriously. We work closely with our clients from the moment we take your case and guide you through the legal system toward a favorable outcome.
If you or someone you love has been accused of theft or fraud crimes, we can answer your questions and help you determine the right criminal defense strategy for your unique situation.
Are you charged with theft by taking from an employer? Many times a company will blame every financial shortage they have on an accused employee. Cohen & Hirsch will work diligently to assure that if you are charged with theft by taking from an employer that you are not falsely accused by a company trying to account for unrelated financial losses.
Our attorneys also represent individuals who have been charged with having stolen goods in their possession.
We Seek To Protect Your Freedom And Reputation
Theft crimes can be very serious charges which can carry felony punishment of up to a 10-year sentence. In addition to up to a 10-year sentence you may be facing a large restitution amount to be paid to the alleged victim and to be tacked on to your sentence. The attorneys at Cohen & Hirsch will work diligently on your behalf to attack the charges and secure the best possible outcome for your situation.
If the situation of your theft case calls for a negotiated resolution, you can count on the attorneys at Cohen & Hirsch to professionally and discreetly negotiate on your behalf with your best interests in mind.
At the Cohen & Hirsch, our attorneys represent people who have been accused of fraud crimes in DeKalb County and throughout the Greater Atlanta Metro area. These white collar crimes can have a serious impact on your future, so we take the charges seriously. We prepare your case for trial by building a strong and effective criminal defense that takes into account the facts of your case.
Defending Clients In Many Fraud Situations
We handle many different types of fraud, including:
- Check fraud
- Bank deposit account fraud
- False statements or fraudulent activities during a bankruptcy proceeding
- Fraudulent acts while using a computer
- Defrauding a government agency
- Healthcare fraud, including Medicare and Medicaid fraud
- Mail and wire fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Public corruption
- Securities fraud
- Tax fraud
- Credit card fraud
Many of the cases we handle involve the alleged theft of ATM cards. In these cases, defendants face charges relating to both the theft and use of the card (financial transaction card theft and financial transaction card fraud) — even if these separate charges relate to only one event. Prosecutors often use the double charges as leverage in your case. They agree to drop on if you plead to the other. Many lawyers encourage you to take this deal. However, it is not always the best way to protect your interests.
At the Cohen & Hirsch, our lawyers have the experience necessary to achieve the best possible results in your fraud case. Settlement isn’t always the best option. In fraud cases, like other areas of criminal defense, we do not hesitate to take your case to trial if necessary.
Our Legal Team Represents Your Best Interests
If you are accused of theft by shoplifting or theft by taking from a corporation and you try to negotiate your way out of it on your own, the corporation often will want you to sign your rights away in order to get you to agree to a payment plan or a guilty plea. The corporations have lawyers working for them and you should have experienced attorneys working for you.
