Theft & Property Crime Attorney – Chicago | Hinsdale

Illinois 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.
