Shoplifting defense attorney: New Jersey shoplifting penalties

The penalties for shoplifting and theft can be serious.
At our firm of criminal defense, employment, and divorce attorneys in Bergen County strive to get the charges reduced to Borough Ordinance violations, or to have them dismissed completely. If a conviction can not be avoided, we request community service, probation, or treatment in lieu of jail time
