Aggressively Defending Your Rights and Freedom
Before becoming a criminal defense attorney, Brandon Duber worked as a prosecutor. In this role, he learned how to assess the strengths and weaknesses in a criminal case. He now uses this knowledge to defend people accused of theft, burglary and robbery.
Defending against theft charges requires discipline, determination and a clear understanding of the law that defines these crimes. For example, the seriousness of a theft charge is based on the value of the merchandise in question and other factors. Through careful analysis and a thorough examination of the evidence, it may possible to obtain a dismissal of the charge or reduction to a lesser charge.
Act Quickly to Obtain Legal Representation
After an arrest, the prosecutor will determine if charges should be filed and if so, what types of charges. Our firm has successfully persuaded prosecutors not to prosecute or to file a lesser charge, based on the available evidence and facts. For this reason, you should immediately obtain representation by an experienced criminal defense firm, even before charges are formally filed against you.
Avoiding Conviction Through Diversion
In some cases, it may be possible to avoid a conviction and criminal record. Entry into a diversion program, and successfully completing it, will result in a dismissal of your charges. Diversion programs are possible in many cases, not only those cases involving misdemeanor theft and shoplifting, but also felonies. Our attorneys have a lot of experience with diversion programs, and evaluating whether your case is a candidate. If your case qualifies for a diversion program, Bentoff & Duber will help you get you this fantastic option.
