Obtaining Property By False Pretenses
This charge generally involves an act of deception that is used to gain something of value. Examples regularly seen in court are when authorities accuse someone of either stealing something and then pawning it or shoplifting an item and then attempting to return it. A conviction can have serious and lasting consequences for your future. When addressing these allegations, it is important to retain an experienced lawyer who will know how to question the evidence against you and advise you of your rights. Mike has your back.

He is a fierce defender who works tirelessly to secure the results our clients need.
