Tough Defense Against Property Crime Charges

In California, property crime encompasses a wide range of charges, from shoplifting and vandalism to burglary, car theft and arson. No matter the severity of the charges against you or a loved one, you need an experienced attorney on your side to vigorously defend your rights.

Whatever You’ve Been Charged With, I Can Help

The Law Office of Thomas F. McKenna is one of the East Bay area’s pre-eminent criminal defense law firms. Based in Walnut Creek, California, my firm represents clients throughout the Bay Area. As a skilled and knowledgeable lawyer, I defend clients against a broad range of felony and misdemeanor charges, including:

  • Theft charges, including petty theft and grand theft (anything over $400)
  • Car theft
  • Arson charges
  • Robbery and burglary
  • Receiving stolen property
  • Juvenile offenses, including shoplifting, vandalism and criminal trespass
  • Charges related to the three strikes rule
  • Embezzlement
  • Insurance Fraud

I will thoroughly investigate all aspects of your situation to build the strongest defense strategy to effectively fight your charges. Depending on your circumstances, this may include evaluating the details of your arrest, your criminal history and the evidence the prosecution has gathered against you. You may be eligible for diversion, which can result in your case being dismissed and allow you to legally state in an employment application that you have never been arrested, charged or convicted of a crime.
