As a former prosecutor, I know how important a person’s criminal history is to the prosecution. But, even if you are facing a theft charge for the first time in your life, you need to be careful about avoiding a conviction of theft.

What to expect of Marke Schnackenberg, Theft Defense Lawyer.

Since I am a former prosecutor with the City of Seattle and the State of Washington and have nearly two decades fighting these charges,  I know all the defenses and all about the legal system that is threatening you. I understand the importance of a careful investigation of the facts to develop the strongest legal defense. I know exactly what to know for during this period to make to tailor the defense to your circumstances. With this defense I will approach the other party, often the store or sometimes an employer, and be in the strongest position to negotiate on your behalf. Even if you feel that there is no hope and that you are guilty of the crime, I may still get the case dismissed through careful negotiation with the prosecutor. Your history and many other facts, such as your personal circumstances, your behavior at the time of arrest, and the amount involved will all have an effect on the outcome also. If you have been arrested in Lynnwood or Edmonds and need a theft offenses attorney please call or email as soon as possible.
