Theft and property crime attorneys illinois

Chicago Theft Defense Attorney

In theft and property crime charges, it is rare to encounter an “open and shut” case. The State must prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. As a criminal defense attorney, my goal is to make the prosecution’s job as difficult as possible. At my practice, the Law Offices of Robert Kerr, I aggressively defend clients using all legal means at my disposal. These can include pre-trial motions to suppress evidence and motions to prevent the testimony of witnesses.

My firm defends clients accused of all types of property crimes, including:

  • Misdemeanor and felony retail theft (shoplifting)
  • Theft of services and/or property
  • Burglary to home or auto
  • Robbery and armed robbery
  • Stolen motor vehicle charges
  • Fraud, embezzlement, and white collar crimes
  • Identity theft
  • And others

I am committed to defending my clients’ rights and preserving their freedom. Call me at 312-955-4400 to arrange for a free consultation.

Building a Strong Defense

In defending you, the Law Offices of Robert Kerr will examine all of the evidence and work closely with you to build a strong defense and obtain the best outcome possible. These outcomes can include dismissal or dropping of the charge, vindication at trial, or a plea involving reduced charges.

In some cases, it may make sense to negotiate for a plea to a reduced charge. You may be a good candidate for theft school through which you can avoid conviction and jail in return for supervision. It is important to hire a lawyer who understands how to negotiate charges downwards to a misdemeanor — which may eventually be expunged.

I understand the criteria that prosecutors and the courts use in such cases, and I will aggressively negotiate the best outcome for you.
