Ohio Criminal Defense Attorney

In Ohio, a theft offense conviction can result in serious consequences, such as fines, restitution, jail time and other penalties. If you have been arrested for shoplifting, breaking and entering, or other theft crime, it is important to hire an experienced and aggressive criminal defense lawyer who will protect your rights and provide the defense representation you need.


As a college student, your education and career path can swiftly become derailed when criminal charges are leveled against you for theft crimes.

Whether the offenses allegedly occurred on or off campus, they can spell disaster for your future, potentially resulting in jail time, a tarnished reputation and criminal record, and school disciplinary penalties such as suspension or expulsion. With so much at stake, it is critical to involve a defense attorney as soon as possible.


Burglary, Robbery, Embezzlement and Other Theft

Our criminal defense team at Mesaros Law Office includes reputable criminal defense lawyers as well as the knowledge of a former acting judge and prosecutor. With more than 30 years of experience, we have the skills necessary to provide effective defense representation to clients facing all types of theft charges in Ohio:


Our legal team provides capable representation in any type of traffic violation, including:

  • Shoplifting/retail theft
  • Burglary/breaking and entering
  • Robbery, including armed robbery
  • Writing bad checks
  • Credit card fraud
  • Stealing utility services, such as high-jacking cable or Internet services
  • Forgery
  • Embezzlement or other white collar crimes
  • Campus theft
  • Other theft or property crimes


In most cases, the classification of theft charges is determined based upon the value of stolen property. Cases that involve property valued less than $500 are generally charged as misdemeanors and can result in a maximum penalty of six months in jail and up to a $1,000 fine. Theft offenses against the elderly as well as theft offenses involving credit cards, checks, weapons, motor vehicles, drugs or other factors may result in theft charges being elevated to felony theft, regardless of the value of property stolen.


We work hard to develop defense solutions that focus on obtaining a reduction or dismissal of the charges. Frequently, diversion programs or treatment may be alternatives to handling such cases. However, when evidence is damning, we work with the clients and prosecutors to effectively manage the outcomes of the case to reflect the behavior actually involved.
