All theft and property crimes carry a stigma of dishonesty. A conviction for any type of theft offense, whether a felony or misdemeanor, can foreclose opportunities in your future. Your employment prospects may be drastically limited. You could lose any professional licenses that you hold. Even your housing prospects could be restricted when a theft offense turns up on a background check.
Fortunately, there are ways to challenge the charges and mitigate the consequences. At Dobson, Davis & Smith, a criminal defense law firm in Tallahassee, our theft offense lawyers offer skilled representation for clients facing any type of property crime. Together, we have more than eight decades of combined experience, including backgrounds in law enforcement and prosecution.

Addressing Immigration Concerns
Theft offenses pose serious immigration consequences. If you are not a U.S. citizen, a theft conviction can lead to deportation and, potentially, permanent bars to re-entering the country.

We work closely with immigration lawyers to help clients avoid or reduce immigration consequences.
