Were you charged with theft by taking from an employer? Many times a company will blame every financial shortage they have on an accused employee.

In addition, attorney Hirsch represents individuals who have been charged with having stolen goods in their possession.

Seeking To Protect Your Freedom And Reputation

Theft crimes can be very serious charges which can carry felony punishment of up to a 10-year sentence. In addition to up to a 10-year sentence, you may be facing a large restitution amount to be paid to the alleged victim and to be tacked on to your sentence. Attorney Hirsch will work diligently on your behalf to attack the charges and secure a resolution for your situation.

Defending Clients In Many Fraud Situations

The firm can provide representation for many different types of fraud, including:

  • Check fraud
  • Bank deposit account fraud
  • Fraud activity or false statements during a bankruptcy proceeding
  • Bribery
  • Using a computer to commit fraudulent acts
  • Forgery
  • Defrauding government agencies
  • Health care-related fraud
  • Medicare and Medicaid fraud
  • Mail and wire fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Public corruption
  • Securities fraud
  • Tax fraud
  • Credit card fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Counterfeiting

Many of the cases attorney Hirsch handles involve the alleged theft of ATM cards. In these cases, defendants face charges relating to both the theft and use of the card (financial transaction card theft and financial transaction card fraud) — even if these separate charges relate to only one event. Prosecutors often use the double charges as leverage in your case. They agree to drop one if you plead to the other. Many lawyers encourage you to take this deal. However, it is not always the best way to protect your interests.

Criminal defense lawyer Matt Hirsch has the experience necessary to pursue favorable results in your fraud case. Settlement isn’t always the best option. In fraud cases, like other areas of criminal defense, he does not hesitate to take your case to trial if necessary.

Representing Your Best Interests

If you are accused of theft by shoplifting or theft by taking from a corporation, and you try to negotiate your way out of it on your own, the corporation often will want you to sign your rights away in order to get you to agree to a payment plan or a guilty plea. The corporations have lawyers working for them, and you should have an experienced attorney working for you.
