Shoplifting Lawyer NJ

Can shoplifting charges be dismissed in NJ?

It’s possible, but it’s not common.

Shoplifting cases are very difficult to win, but it can be done.

In order for the Prosecutor to drop the case against you, there must be strong proof that no crime was committed.

As your lawyers, it is our job to explain your story to the Prosecutor.

If the evidence is there to prove you are innocent, the Prosecutor may be convinced to drop the case.

After meeting with you, we prepare all of the evidence and file important documents to show that you are innocent.

In this way, the case never goes to trial and you avoid a criminal conviction.

More importantly, you avoid going to jail.

We fight to keep you out of jail and to keep your record clean.
