Firm’s Approach to DC Theft Cases
Theft is considered to be a crime of dishonesty and in some cases, like robbery is considered a serious violent crime. Convictions for these crimes have a lasting impact on someone’s personal life and professional career. It is important to work with a local, accomplished, theft lawyer who could begin building a defense for you. A firm’s approach to DC theft cases could make a huge difference in the outcome that you receive.
Consequences of Theft
A lawyer could pinpoint any mitigating circumstances that might help in negotiations with the prosecutor. For example, a person who has lost their job, is recently homeless, and takes food from a convenience store to feed their family, is seen as less culpable or less blameworthy than a person who enters someone’s home to steal their television set.
Personal and extenuating circumstances can be discussed with the attorney to determine if they will either hurt or significantly help in defending the case.

Important Information During an Initial Interview
During an initial interview with a potential client, an attorney will often look for evidence that indicates that someone was operating under mistaken beliefs or did not have the required intent to actually take another person’s property is information that their attorney looks for during the initial client interview.
The lawyer also reviews who the witnesses are and the circumstances surrounding what they allegedly saw with their own eyes. For example, the attorney finds out what time of day the theft occurred and what the weather conditions were like at the time.
If it was dark outside and raining, the witness most likely did not have a good view of who committed the theft. The attorney also investigates the location of the theft, which is important in a case where the theft occurred at night. Even if it was a clear night, if the street is a poorly lit area, the witness most likely did not have a clear view of who committed the theft.
