What are Property Crimes?

Charges involving damage or a loss of property are known as property crimes. This is an umbrella term used to include theft, damage, and false pretenses where another person's property is stolen, damaged, or destroyed. You can also be charged with a property crime if you borrow something and fail to return it. Due to the wide variety of property crimes, a good legal defense is imperative.

How Property Crimes Affect You

Like crimes against individuals, property crimes are broken into felonies and misdemeanors. The type of property stolen or damaged, along with the value of that property, will weigh heavily on whether a crime is a felony or misdemeanor, and subsequently the type of consequences. The severity of the offense can also be the determining factor between being charged with a felony or a misdemeanor.

No matter which type of crime you are charged with, contacting a good criminal defense attorney is advisable. At the Jacob Law Firm, one of our top priorities is to always make ourselves available to our clients.

  • So Grateful

    “From the moment I contacted Ben for help with a criminal arrest of my son, I was confident he was the attorney I wanted to handle this matter. Not only was he professional, but truly caring and super efficient working with the DA to get the charges dismissed. I highly recommend him-you won’t regret giving him a call.”

  • Ben made the difference

    “Ben Jacob is by far, the best attorney I've ever met. His expertise kept my family together. He cares about the people he serves. He is ethical, knowledgeable, professional, respectful, and goes above and beyond. In my opinion, there is no other I would recommend after my family's experience with Ben. He's outstanding!”

    Susan

  • So Relieved!

    “I found Mr. Jacob through the AVVO website. After calling and emailing many lawyers, Mr. Jacob was frank and honest with me as he explained to me how unfortunate my legal situation was and what we could do together to quickly handle the case before it was out of our hands. I appreciated his honesty and his desire to act quickly while maintaining communication throughout the process. He was honestly the only lawyer that I felt I could trust, even through the phone, and that was something that made me stick with him. It was my first time experiencing the legal system with a domestic violence charge and while I was adamant I was the victim, the authorities felt otherwise. As you can imagine the stress was unfathomable. But three days later, Mr. Jacob granted me the news that my case had been dismissed and the biggest weight of my life had been lifted. As someone who is experiencing the world of court and lawyers for the first time, a young female in her twenties, who was leaving an abusive long term relationship, I was scared and unsure from the beginning of who to even chose as my defense. I felt as though the wrong choice could lead me to certain doom... luckily, it was the right one. I can't thank him enough for making a tough time a little bit easier and I would never wish you would need his intelligence and experience to help you or a loved one, but I can say without a doubt I would recommend him.”
