Annapolis Property Crime Defense Lawyers

The criminal defense attorneys at Cochran and Chhabra, LLC represents adults and juveniles charged with various forms of property crime: theft, burglary, shoplifting or vandalism, to name a few. Depending on the value of the property allegedly stolen or destroyed, these charges can be processed as misdemeanors or felonies. Even relatively minor charges can have serious consequences for those convicted, especially students or juveniles.

Contact our office in Annapolis to work with lawyers who not only know how to develop and present effective trial defenses, but also can find ways to divert cases away from the criminal justice system through pretrial diversion programs, especially Probation Before Judgment (PBJ) dispositions. PBJ can help people protect their interest in eventual expungement of a property crime charge and a clean criminal record.

Developing a sound defense strategy based on these alternatives can benefit clients whose greatest risk will not be punishment on a current misdemeanor charge, but the future consequences of a conviction.
