If you are suspected of committing a theft offense, you may have received a theft citation in Orange County, Osceola County, Seminole County or another county in central Florida. The citation is essentially a ticket, and while you may not necessarily get arrested or go to jail, you do face the same potential penalties as if you were arrested. Pleading guilty to the citation could be an admission of guilt and can result in penalties such as driver's license suspension, fines and probation. An Orlando theft citation attorney from The Umansky Law Firm can contest your citation and fight for the best possible outcome on your behalf.
At The Umansky Law Firm, our Florida theft defense attorneys help people throughout Orlando, Kissimmee and central Florida get a second chance. Many of our clients are honest people who made a simple mistake by forgetting to pay for an item before leaving a store. Some are parents who were distracted by their children and forgot to pay for that item in the bottom of their cart.
Do these scenarios sound familiar? We believe that you deserve a second chance for your mistake. We can take immediate action toward contesting the theft charge citation and minimizing consequences such as jail or prison, fines, and a crippling criminal record.

Types of Theft Citations
The level of the theft offense is determined by the monetary value of the stolen items. In general, stolen property valued at less than $300 is misdemeanor theft, while property valued at greater than $300 is grand theft felony.
No theft charge is too small or too large for our attorneys to handle. We have represented clients in Orlando, Kissimmee, Daytona Beach, Brevard County and throughout central Florida in a wide range of theft crimes. As most of us are former prosecutors, we know how the prosecution builds cases against people charged with this crime. While this does not guarantee a successful result, it does give us an advantage in reviewing your case and preparing for challenges in your defense. We are able to look closely at the facts of your particular case and tailor a defense strategy to achieve a desired outcome.
