We Work Tirelessly For Our Clients

We will never be out-worked. From the initial consultation onward, we will never close a case until everything has been done for our clients. Contact us today to discuss the unique circumstances of your case with a trusted, knowledgeable, and committed criminal defense lawyer at our Cary, North Carolina, law office.

Our firm handles larceny defense, including cases involving the following:

-          Felony Larceny - Defeat Anti-Theft Device

-          Felony Larceny

-          Misdemeanor Larceny

-          Shoplifting

-          Concealment

Many people do not know that removing the anti-theft device, cutting off price tags/sensors or putting an item in a bag that prohibits the theft sensors from activating turns a minor low dollar theft into a felony charge with jail time as a real possibility.  If you have been charged with felony larceny by defeating an anti-theft device you need an experienced lawyer on your side.

Larceny charges can have serious consequences. Larceny crimes include theft in which property was stolen with the intent to take it without paying for it or returning it. A larceny conviction (or even just the charge) could eliminate certain jobs and allow you to be denied rental housing.  If you have been charged with larceny or shoplifting from Wal-Mart, Kohl’s, Target or Belk you need an aggressive attorney in your corner.

We are thorough in our case evaluations. We will listen carefully to your side, ask you questions, and perform a meticulous investigation of the circumstances surrounding your case. As a former prosecutor, Defense Attorney Wiley Nickel knows how to handle these cases because he has been on the other side.

NC Larceny Expungement Information

The main goal with all of our larceny cases is to secure a dismissal and then an expungement of the charges.  Even if the case is dismissed a record remains and must be expunged to erase all records.  For many clients the main goal is an expungement so one minor incident doesn’t follow them to job interviews for years.  If we are able to secure a dismissal of your larceny charge we will promptly file a petition to erase all public records by way of an expungement petition.
