Theft Defense Attorney

Arrested For Theft? I'll Use My Entire 40-plus Years Of Winning Experience To Help You.

People facing misdemeanor or felony charges for theft and property crimes such as grand larceny, auto theft, burglary and robbery often face mental health or chemical dependency problems. Sometimes, people make errors in judgment. It doesn't make them a criminal; it makes them human.

For More Than 40 Years, I Have Been Helping People Stay Out Of Jail

I am Brooklyn criminal defense attorney Neil S. Ruskin. For more than 40 years, I have been fighting to make sure my clients get the best possible outcome for their criminal charges. Often, that means making sure the prosecutor understands that putting a criminal conviction on someone's record and throwing him or her in jail doesn't address the human factor that led to the offense.

I don't look at the crime. I look at the person.
I bring my entire criminal defense background into play on theft defense cases. By listening, I get to the real person behind the criminal charges. Behind every theft or property crime is a human story and I make sure the prosecutor and judge hear it.

To win a case involving theft or a property crime, it is important to thoroughly understand the client and the case. In most cases, there is a mental health or chemical dependency problem that lies at its roots. I fight hard to find the right program to get my clients the help they need, without jail or a conviction on their record, whenever possible.
