Property-related criminal offenses can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending upon the severity of the offense, the circumstances of the offense, and the monetary value of the property in question.
Whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, you should speak to a criminal defense lawyer right away. At Simon Law Firm we represent individuals who have been charged with:
- Operating a Motor Vehicle Without Owner’s Consent

Depending on the charge, you may be facing significant jail time, probation, fines, or even prison.

We work hard to find solutions that will produce the best possible results for your particular case.
Cases involving property can become very complex when dealing with the value of property which is stolen or damaged and the amount of restitution that is ordered. Restitution is compensation for the loss caused to another. It is important to hire an attorney who has experience dealing with these types of cases.
If you have been charged with a property-related crime, we will thoroughly review your case with you and make sure you understand all of your rights, including your right to have a trial. If you are convicted of a property-related crime, you have a right to dispute the amount of restitution that is being sought by the alleged victim. Contact us for a free consultation.
