Eugene Theft, Shoplifting, & Burglary Defense Attorneys

Cutting-Edge, Innovative Oregon Criminal Defense by a Trial Litigation Firm


Theft, burglary, and white collar crimes are property crimes that are also crimes of dishonesty. A conviction for these crimes pretty much guarantees that you will never have a job where an employer has to trust you with money. In this economy you are competing against 100 other people for the same position who have clean records.

At Arnold Law, we understand that being accused of a theft-related crime puts your life and liberty on the line, as well as your employment prospects. If it’s a felony, such as Theft I or Burglary, you might always be classified as a convicted felon. An aggressive defense is necessary to fight these accusations and the awesome power of the government.

They have multiple police agencies, investigators, forensic scientists, and district attorneys at their disposal. You have your lawyer. Make the most out of your choice.

If you have been accused of a theft crime, attorney Mike Arnold will vigorously defend you against these charges. We will provide you with the straight-talking legal counsel your case requires.

Eugene Repeat Property Offender Statute Defense Attorneys

Oregon has a “mini-Measure 11″ for serious property crimes that based on criminal history could land you a mandatory minimum prison sentence. This mandatory sentence applies even if you have never been convicted of a crime before the current multiple-count case. You may need the attorneys of Arnold Law who understand how to protect clients from prison exposure.

Our goals in multiple-count cases include the following:

  • » Dismissal of all charges
  • » Acquittal of all charges
  • » Diversion (where charges are dismissed in six months)
  • »Conviction of only one misdemeanor or Class C felony count (which is expungeable in three years)
  • »Conviction of two expungeable offenses (two or more convictions means a ten year wait)
  • »Conviction of no Class A or B felonies because only class C felonies can be reduced to misdemeanors at the end of probation.
