Charged With Shoplifting In Minneapolis? Let Us Help You.

Have you been accused of shoplifting? Did an inadvertent slip-up turn into a full-blown legal matter? Did your teenager make a poor choice?

A shoplifting charge is more serious than you may think. One of the biggest mistakes people make is thinking that one shoplifting charge will not have a huge impact. Having a shoplifting conviction on your record could make it difficult to find a job or get a loan, affecting your ability to support yourself. However, you shouldn't have to suffer the consequences for the rest of your life.

Defending Those Charged With Shoplifting

At Groshek Law in Minneapolis, Minnesota, we defend people who have been charged with criminal acts throughout the Twin Cities. Our lawyers have experience representing clients in both the adult and juvenile justice systems and are committed to minimizing the consequences our clients face.

Our attorneys work with each client to develop a strategic plan for the legal matter at hand as well as any other social or family issues that need to be resolved.

The Punishment Of Social Stigma

Another issue about being charged with theft or shoplifting is the social stigma that society attaches to it. Because it is viewed as a crime of dishonesty, people attach serious judgment to it whether or not they know all the facts. This is particularly troubling for minors who have long futures ahead of them.
