The shoplifting defense lawyers at the Law Office of Sara Sencer McArdle provide expert criminal justice services in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union, & Warren Counties and across Northern & Central New Jersey.Shoplifters are rarely hardened criminals. They are usually just people who made an error in judgment or who were in the wrong place at the wrong time. At the Law Office of Sara Sencer McArdle, LLC, our lawyers understand this. We offer confidential, nonjudgmental and effective representation for people charged with shoplifting in New Jersey.

When we take your shoplifting case, our goal is to resolve it effectively and efficiently. This has become harder to do in recent years. While shoplifting was once negotiable as a minor offense, New Jersey Courts have made it more difficult to plea bargain all theft offenses. Your lawyer must prepare for trial and build a thorough criminal defense that attacks the elements of the prosecution’s case. That’s why it is important to contact our lawyers.

We will fight for you.
