Philadelphia Theft Attorney

There is a big difference between the potential minimum and maximum sentences for anyone found guilty of theft in Pennsylvania. The person you hire to represent you as your attorney matters. You need someone passionate about protecting your civil liberties—you need the Philadelphia theft attorneys at van der Veen, Hartshorn, Levin & Lindheim. We are the premier legal defense law firm in Philadelphia because we get results for our clients.

Penalties for Theft Convictions in Philadelphia

Pennsylvania escalates theft charges based on the factors surrounding your case. The main factor used to determine how you are charged is the value of the alleged stolen property. Other factors can dramatically increase your potential sentence. Our first job as your Philadelphia theft defense attorneys is to minimize your potential exposure to penalties by getting charges reduced as much as possible. We take trumped-up charges head on and protect your interests from the outset of your care. The general theft classifications are as follows:

  • Less than $50 worth of property—Up to one year in jail for a first offense.
  • $50-$200 worth of property—Up to two years in prison.
  • $200-$2,000 worth of property—Up to five years in prison.
  • Grand theft, receiving stolen property or more than $2,000 worth of property—Up to seven years in prison.
  • Theft of a firearm, anhydrous ammonia or theft during a disaster—Up to ten years in prison.

Our Job as Your Philadelphia Theft Defense Attorneys

What sets us apart from other Philadelphia theft defense attorneys? Our staunch dedication to you and your case, exceptional attention to detail and unparalleled track record of success. Theft cases hinge upon just a few key pieces of evidence. We scrutinize every bit of evidence to find errors to justify that evidence getting ruled inadmissible. Evidence can be suppressed for any number of procedural or prejudicial reasons. Any one piece of evidence that is suppressed from the case against you can completely tear apart their case. We aggressively tear apart the prosecutor’s case until they have nothing left.
