Toronto Shoplifting & Theft Lawyer

Also known as “Theft Under $5000″

While shoplifting offences are clearly at the low end of the criminal law spectrum, they are often the only encounter the average Canadian ever has with our criminal justice system. These types of offences can be intensely embarrassing and are often a symptom of other difficulties in an individual’s life. While many people choose to handle cases of this nature on their own, at Bytensky Shikhman we have developed a niche area to assist those individuals who view the cost of professional legal counsel a small price to pay for the peace of mind of knowing that they have skilled and compassionate representation during this difficult time.

Bytensky  Shikhman Criminal Lawyers have an extraordinary success rate securing diversion for people charged with shoplifting – even if they have been previously charged with the same offence. If approved, diversion will see your charges removed from the criminal justice system in exchange for some combination of a charitable donation, counselling, program attendance, or letter of apology. Shoplifting often has its roots not in financial need but in an underlying psychological issue. Our lawyers can help you access programs and psychologists who can get to the root of the problem ensuring not only a successful court outcome, but a better life in the future.

In addition to the criminal court troubles that come along with any shoplifting charges, many retailers seek payment for perceived losses or damages in the form of civil recovery. Learn more about your rights when you receive a demand letter for civil recovery.

    Edward is an excellent lawyer. He is very professional and hard working criminal lawyer. I hired him for my sons criminal matter as he was looking at numerous charges and some serious jail time. He worked very hard on my sons case and dropped all charges. My son was able to get away with no jail time, thanks to Edwards hard work.. Edward was a godsend to me and my family in the hardest time of my life, and I will never forget. Every thing he told me during the court sessions happened exactly as he had planned them. I would very highly recommend Edward, his work speaks for itself. If you want positive results this is the guy to hire. Thank you Edward for what you have done for me and my family. All the best, Dod

    Sonya is very professional, knowledgable and pleasant lawyer. She was always there when we needed her. She was patient, explained every step of the very unpleasant process and prepared us for every day of the trial. I have been recommending Sonya and her law firm ever since. Thank you, Sonya! Keep up Great Work!
