Theft & Embezzlement
You Don’t Want A Theft Conviction On Your Record
Incarceration And Hefty Fines Are Possible
Theft crimes cover a range of charges and can include such offenses as:
- Petty larceny
- Grand larceny
- Auto theft
- Receiving stolen goods
- Burglary and robbery
- Fraud and embezzlement
Embezzlement and fraud are also considered white collar crimes. Depending on the details of the case, these may include federal charges. We have the federal defense experience to represent you in white collar cases. Your attorney must have this experience because federal court has its own deadlines and rules.
If you are charged with stealing less than $250 of goods/services in Minnesota, the charge will be a misdemeanor. For goods/services between $250 and $500, you will be charged with a gross misdemeanor. When the value is more than $500, you will face felony charges.
In addition to a possible jail or prison sentence, you may be ordered to pay fines and make restitution to the victims. A conviction can be expensive. It is better to fight the charges against you with the assistance of an experienced, aggressive lawyer. We are often able to get charges reduced or dismissed. We have won numerous acquittals in a broad range of serious cases, including theft cases.

This letter is to thank you for representation that was above and beyond what we expected to receive. You are a clever, extremely professional, comforting individual and always kept us informed during the process. It was apparent to me that you care about the outcome as much as we did. Your style of representation was impeccable, classy, and cleverly executed throughout every facet of the case. We were proud to have you as our lawyer. We felt comforted by your portrayal of experience and knowledge. You were protective, well-prepared, thorough, convincing, and always accurate. I could see the others had respect for you and what you had to say. John did everything he promised and more. He comforted us when we were worried, and fought hard for us. He was our friend. I would recommend anyone to John. John is truly a terrific person and attorney. Thanks for excellent representation. Sincerely yours.
I so appreciate your entire team’s efforts in my case. Your hard work, diligence and heads-up play really made all the difference in the outcome. I will forever be indebted.
Just a note to thank you for the wonderful representation provided to my son. I have worked in the Justice System for 30 years and have had the opportunity to watch many well-known defense attorneys in action. None of them compare with the knowledge, grace and dignity that you provided to my son which ultimately has given him a second chance at life. You are truly the Best of the Best!! Thank you never seems enough, but thank you!
We give thanks to God for having placed such a great person in our path. Thank you for offering us your support up until the last moment. God Bless you now and always John J. Leunig
Thank you again for taking time to take care of my case. Without your help and support, my case could not have been done so well. I really appreciate all you have done. You have also given Bill and I a second chance. You are a very good lawyer and did a great job! I will always remember you for helping us.
Thank you so much for the incredibly competent legal counsel and personal support. Thank you so much.
Thanks so much for all your help with the whole ordeal.
Thank you for your time, counsel and reassurance yesterday. I respect and admire all that you do.
I never had a chance to properly thank you for helping me out of that jam with my DWI. You were huge.
….I do believe that God guided me through all the Attorney letters, emails and phone calls to meet you. I must admit that neither the implied consent decision or this last plea agreement came as a surprise, I thank you for that. From day one, you were open and honest about what could happen to me leaving a window of optimism open. I’ve also felt from day one a feeling of comfort knowing that the office of John Leunig cares about his clients far beyond the income they generate for you. …It’s hard to find honesty and sincerity nowadays from anyone, but I’ve found that with you, I appreciate that. I will be advertising your law office to all my friends or anyone I run across in the future. Yes, I’d like to be the CEO of the John Leunig Law Office Fan Club. lol.
