Why You Need an Experienced Riverside Theft Attorney

Theft crimes carry severe consequences in Riverside. If the value of the items you are accused of taking is less than $950, you face petty theft charges. This is generally charged as a misdemeanor and can be sentenced by up to six months in jail. You face grand theft charges if the value of the items is $950 or more. A felony grand theft conviction is punishable by up to three years in jail.

Not only will you face these harsh sentences if you are convicted of theft, you will also face the negative stigma that comes with having a criminal record for the rest of your life. This could make it difficult to live a normal life and maintain employment. That is why it is important to hire an experienced criminal lawyer if you are facing theft charges.

“I was charged with grand theft. I had never done anything like this before and I knew that there was no good evidence against me. I hired Wallin & Klarich to represent me. It was a great decision, as I know I found the best attorney to represent me in my case. My lawyer talked to the district attorney and was somehow able to get my case dismissed. What an excellent result this was for me! I would highly recommend you hire Wallin & Klarich if you need a lawyer.”


“I truly believe that the phone call to Wallin & Klarich changed my life. I would not be here as a free man today if it weren’t for my attorneys at Wallin & Klarich. I was facing two felony charges relating to grand theft. I thought I would have to go to jail and I was ready to give up. Then I called Wallin & Klarich. My attorneys met with me and my family to explain the situation to me and start coming up with a plan of attack. We came to the conclusion that it would be best to try to get the charges against me reduced. That is exactly what my attorneys were able to do. The two felony counts I faced were reduced to one misdemeanor count. My attorneys worked out a deal with the judge so that I would not have to serve any jail time and all the charges against me would be dropped and dismissed. Thanks to Wallin & Klarich, I don’t have a record and I do have a future. Thank you Wallin & Klarich!”


“I was accused of stealing from a local store in Riverside and I was arrested. This experience was so embarrassing and made me extremely nervous. That’s when my family found Wallin & Klarich. We met with the attorneys and hired them right away. They were able to tell me all about the law and what was going to happen in court. He even told me that I wouldn’t even have to appear in court. This was important to me because I would not have to miss time from my job to go to court. My lawyer said he had worked with the district attorney in charge of my case before and that he had a good relationship with the district attorney. He was able to talk to the district attorney and work out a great deal for me. I had to complete a course about theft but that was all. My case was dismissed after I passed the course. Thank you to my attorneys at Wallin & Klarich! I will make sure to tell all my friends about your great work if they need a lawyer.”
