Theft Charges

Akron Criminal Theft Attorneys

Aggressive Criminal Defense By Former Prosecutors & Police Can Make A Difference

If you, or a family member have been charged with either a misdemeanor or felony theft charge, you are facing a potential jail sentence. The Attorneys at Suhre & Associates include FORMER PROSECUTORS AND A FORMER POLICE OFFICER. We will aggressively advocate for your defense starting with the collection of all evidence.

From there, we will perform an assessment of the evidence to determine where the weaknesses in the case lie. This allows us to exploit those weaknesses to a level that may warrant a reduction, diversion, or an acquittal at trial.

If you are eligible, we may be able to negotiate with the prosecutors to allow you to enter the diversion program which ultimately leads to a DISMISSAL.

DUI Case

A Relieved Client

“I went to court thinking I would just get driving privileges and still be under suspension for some time. Rob was able to get the entire ALS suspension waived and most of the court fees waived as well. Was placed under 6 months probation, couldnt have asked for a better outcome. Rob did a phenomenal job. He is very knowledgeable and accessible, and I would recommend him to anyone.”

DUI Case

A Grateful Client

“Rob is very knowledgeable in his area. His expertise and advice were unsurpassed. I not only had extreme confidence in Rob’s ability but was able to put my mind at ease while we went through this process. Rob was able to work with the prosecuting attorney and then get agreement from the Judge to dismiss several charges and plead to a 1st DUI. I cannot express the gratitude I have for Rob. I realize that he is being paid for his service, but his attitude is like none I’ve experienced when dealing with an attorney for this type of matter. He was not judgmental but caring.”
