HAVE YOU BEEN ACCUSED OF:

Identity Theft

Identity Theft is the misuse of another person’s identifying information such as social security numbers, credit cards or other personal or financial information. The identifying information is usually acquired through stolen wallets, purses or credit card receipts. Increasingly, such information is acquired through the Internet. The stolen identity is then used to make purchases or commit crimes in the victim’s name.

As the costs of identity theft are sky-rocketing, there is an increasing effort to prevent and catch identify thieves. If you are accused of identity theft, you may face the considerable resources of banks or other financial institutions assisting in the prosecution. You may also face other criminal charges for crimes committed through the use of the stolen identity. Even if the incident of identity theft is relatively minor, a conviction on identity theft may carry significant jail time and financial penalties.

An experienced attorney can often be instrumental in minimizing these associated penalties and fines, saving the defendant thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. An experienced attorney can also help work out reasonable payment plans that actually allow for the defendant to pay the damages back over a reasonable time period, while at the same time keeping the defendant out of jail or prison.

DEFENSE!

As with white collar crimes, pre-trial preparation is one of the keys to the successful defense of theft charges. Often times, experts in computer forensics or handwriting can tip the scales in your favor, so your defense team needs to have the resources to thoroughly prepare for combat with the prosecution.

Theft crime cases are often won or lost based on pre-trial preparation. Your defense team must have the time and expertise to conduct its own investigation of your case.

Theft crimes, particularly identity theft, tend to be easier to negotiate in terms of plea discussions than violent crimes or sex offenses. Although we always prepare for trial, our seasoned attorneys are especially skilled at negotiation techniques. We will always strive to present you with the best potential negotiated resolution possible, knowing that it is your choice whether to take a deal or go to trial.

Whether you elect to resolve your case with or without a trial, the most important factors in a theft case are that your case is fully prepared and you are able to make a fully informed choice. It is your case and your future, so mounting a defense requires a team, not just a single attorney.

Theft crimes tend to have financial ramifications in the event that you suffer a conviction. Fines and restitution are often mandatory, and an experienced attorney can guide and advise you from a financial perspective how to lessen the impact of these collateral consequences.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY:

  • Gina was like a lioness protecting her cub.
        

    I hired Gina and her team for my son who was facing 10 years for something they said he did when he was 17 years old. Gina was like a lioness protecting her cub. She did not stop. She fought hard and was able to defend the charges. We are so grateful to her and her team. They gave us our son. He recovered his life!

  • Best defense lawyers in the country.
        

    I hired this law firm in 2014 for my son who was facing 16 years in prison for a felony robbery. Lina Helou answered all our questions. I was extremely distraught regarding what my son was facing but Lina comforted me and told me that it would be okay. And thank goodness LibertyBell saved my son from going to jail and they were able to obtain only 3 years of probation. I could not have hired a better law firm for my son and if you want the best defense call LibertyBell Law Group. Thank God for this great group of lawyers.
    – V. J.
  • A great team of lawyers.
        

    I do not have enough words to describe how incredible the experience with this firm was. They work very hard to make sure you have winning results. I could not have asked for better service from the moment I called, until my case was over. I was glad I made the right choice. Thank you again LibertyBell Law Group!

  • She took her time to review all of my evidence and proved my innocence.
        

    My father had found this group through his company and coworkers. I was assigned Gina Tennen and I cannot explain in just a review on how gratefull I am to be working with her. My case was an accusation of unlawful sex. This had looked extremely bad on my part since I was in a fraternity and she was in a sorority. During these times with Greek life, there are too many bad stigmas surrounding these organizations. Gina had believed in me and knew that I was innocent and that these accusations just were not true. She took her time to review all of my evidence and proved my innocence. I totally recommend this law group because they are willing to put in the work to help your situation.

  • Gina always kept me fully aware of how the case was proceeding.
        

    When I first heard I was under a criminal investigation, I initially thought I would try and resolve this in the best way possible, without legal representation, as we were all interested in a "just" outcome. I quickly discovered that was not the case and contacted Gina at Liberty Bell. She clearly described the expectations and the choices available to me. She was always available to me, and when I called, if she couldn't talk with me at that time, she would quickly get back to me. Gina always kept me fully aware of how the case was proceeding. Her fee's were stipulated up front, as well as what those fees covered and what they did not.

  • Attorney Gina Tennen was on point from day one.
        

    Attorney Gina Tennen was on point from day one putting pressure on the sherrif's office to get things handled. With Child molestation accusatinos being thrown around Gina and Attorney Castro were great at keeping the pressure on and had no charges filled. The DCFS indications were appealed and we won with flying colors. Great service, great work, and will use again for all legal matters.
