Protecting the Rights of Tennessee Clients Facing Theft Charges

More than 30 years of experience on your side

A conviction on theft charges can have long-term ramifications for you. Thus, it is so important that you seek competent legal counsel when you are facing criminal charges. At the Nashville-based Law Office of Perry A. Craft, PLLC, we know what it takes to build a successful case against charges of theft. Attorney Craft has nearly four decades of experience practicing law, and puts his background as a former Deputy and Assistant Attorney General to work for his clients, building strategies designed to anticipate how the other side will make its case.

Theft charges we handle

Though our firm handles all manner of theft charges, some criminal accusations are more common than others. The Law Office of Perry A. Craft represents clients facing charges of:

  • Theft of services
  • Theft of property
  • Robbery, “the intentional or knowing theft of property from the person of another by violence or putting the person in fear”
  • Aggravated robbery, or robbery with a deadly weapon, where the victim believes there is a deadly weapon, or where a victim has suffered bodily harm
  • Carjacking, the “intentional or knowing taking of a motor vehicle from the possession of another by use of” deadly weapon or intimidation
  • Burglary, where a person enters a building or structure with the intent to commit a theft or assault
  • Racketeering

The Law Office of Perry A. Craft also provides comprehensive counsel for clients who are facing additional charges for carrying a weapon, for assault and battery, or for so-called “white collar” theft including embezzlement, fraud, wire fraud, mail fraud, and identity theft.

The criminal charges you face determine your fines and penalties. While some theft crimes are misdemeanors, many are felonies and could cost you thousands in fines, fees, restitution and years in jail or in prison. A felony conviction makes it difficult for you to obtain and maintain a job after you are released.

The truth is, a theft conviction of any grade can make it difficult to live a normal life in Tennessee or in any state. Attorney Perry Craft understands the serious repercussions resulting from a conviction.  He will fight for you at every step of the proceedings, work your case and prepare you for hearings and trial.  Trust us to defend your rights from the very first day.
