Sophisticated Theft Crime Defense

At Hertel Law, S.C., in Eau Claire, we are highly experienced with theft and property offense cases in Western Wisconsin. As a criminal defense firm, we are relentless in protecting the rights of our clients and holding prosecution and law enforcement authorities to their responsibilities. We can defend you if you have been charged with:

  • Theft
  • Retail theft or shoplifting
  • Armed robbery
  • Burglary
  • Fraud
  • Embezzlement, which refers to an employee taking something from his or her employer
  • Criminal damage to property
  • Uttering a forgery
  • A crime against an aggrieved business partner or family member

In some cases, a defendant can make restitution — this can involve making reimbursement of the value of what was stolen, a restocking fee, the store’s attorney’s fees and punitive damages — or obtain alternative sentencing, particularly if he or she does not have a previous record. Our firm can help you explore all possible defenses and sentencing options that may be in your best interest.
