Criminal Defense of Theft & Larceny Charges
The Blanch Law Firm offers extensive experience in criminal defense of Theft & Larceny Crimes. Our attorneys are former prosecutors who handle felony and misdemeanor charges in state and federal district court, and investigations conducted by federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.
Dedicated, seasoned, and thorough, our attorneys are superb negotiators at plea-bargaining with prosecutors. And our superb courtroom skills have resulted in an unprecedented number of dismissals in theft cases that go to trial.
A Unique Approach to Theft Crimes
Firm founder Ryan Blanch developed the unique approach of assigning six attorneys to every theft case. And he personally oversees each matter so that the entire team is aware of all developments, combining six lawyers into a single unit with only one goal in mind: to win for you.
Our client-oriented team approach produces outcomes favorable to clients because our attorneys are proactive. We have consistently demonstrated an unparalleled ability to:
- ■Negotiate plea-bargains with prosecutors, often arranging for reduced charges and lesser sentences. We can push through a deal that the self-represented cannot hope to accomplish because prosecutors are not intimidated by a pro se defendants;
■Help defendants cope with feelings of fear, embarrassment, and reduced self-esteem that criminal charges tend to produce in people;
■Provide defendants with a reality check — a knowledgeable, objective perspective on the likely outcome if and when a case goes to trial. (This perspective is crucial in helping a client make the decision whether to accept the prosecution’s offer of a plea bargain);
■Uncover legal precedent that a self-represented individual simply could not locate, lacking in-depth knowledge of case law. (For instance, what constitutes an “unreasonable search and seizure” requires familiarity with a vast array of state and federal appellate court opinions);
■Apply in-depth knowledge of court procedure which is unknown to anyone but daily practitioners in the criminal justice system. (For instance, our attorneys know which prosecutor has actual authority to settle a case, or arguments that are likely to appeal to various judges appointed to the state and federal court bench;
■Understand the potential “hidden costs” of pleading guilty which the self-represented could not know;
■Devote the time required to ensure the best possible outcome for the client (our dedicated attorneys are available seven days a week to answer your questions);
■Gather information from prosecution witnesses, who often fear alleged offenders and, therefore, will refuse to speak to a self-represented criminal defendant;
■Hire investigators able to find information for use in impeaching hostile witnesses;
■Manage information sources willing to provide evidence favorable to a defendant and use it at trial;
■Formulate proposals for sentences tailored to a client’s specific needs (drug rehab programs rather than jail time), which can diminish the potential for a client having a future brush with the law.
