Who we help: suspected shoplifters wanting to fight for their rights.
Usually, a suspected shoplifter is approached and detained by store security after being witnessed taking (concealing or not) store merchandise from the merchant without paying for it. Police intervention and arrest often follows these events.
Most commonly asked question by those accused of the offense:
What are the potential consequences and how am I going to be treated by the criminal justice system and the Court?
The answer varies based on the steps taken by accused shoplifters immediately after the ordeal. If the accused wants to protect their rights and contact a local attorney, the end result can, and often will be very different as opposed to the consequences for those who ignore and remain in fear of the legal system pursuing them.
