Marietta and Cobb County Shoplifting Defense

Ben has represented hundreds of people over the years in shoplifting cases. Thousands of people are arrested each year in Georgia for misdemeanor shoplifting. Retail stores are vigilant about detecting and prosecuting shoplifters, and most stores have extensive video surveillance systems. As you might guess, therefore, many people arrested for shoplifting have been caught on camera. This may sound like a hopeless situation, but it's not.  

First Time Shoplifters Can Get Their Case Dismissed

Most courts offer what are called pretrial diversion programs for first-time shoplifters. Generally, the programs consist of community service and a shoplifting/theft seminar. The result is that the case gets dismissed and the arrest on your record gets restricted (formerly known as expunged). 

Many courts require you to have a lawyer to be eligible for participation in the pretrial diversion program. Ben helps dozens of people every year get their cases dismissed through diversion programs. If you have been arrested for shoplifting, you need help. Contact Ben for a free consultation.  

"Without a Doubt the Best"

"I would highly recommend Ben. There were not any surprises or extra costs. He was very clear on what to expect. Even more impressive was what happened before I went to court and while in court, everything happened exactly as Ben had told me it would. When I was in the court room and Ben needed to make things happen, he was so articulate I felt as though I had an entire team of lawyers."

"Truly an attorney with not just intellect but heart!"

"When Mr. Goldberg came into my life, he went against all odds, believed in my innocence, fought for my justice, and supported me as my lawyer and my friend. I personally believe that when Mr. Goldberg chose to practice law, his goal was not money nor prestige, but was only the well-being of the client. More specifically, he values the lives of the individuals he represents and provides them with the best defense to see to it that justice is served."
