As a parent, do I need a criminal defense attorney?

This is an excellent issue for parents of teens to consider. No one wants to think about his or her older children getting into trouble with the law, but taking a preventive approach is not a bad idea.

Fighting theft charges in the Prince Georges County area

Theft, burglary or larceny charges can involve comparatively minor shoplifting incidents to big business corporate stealing or trafficking stolen goods. It is probably safe to say most people charged with theft in the Clinton or Dunkirk area of Maryland fall somewhere in between the two extremes previously mentioned. However, any charge of theft or burglary is still a serious incident and could pose real threats to a person's future if not dealt with.
