Defending Against the Consequences of Identity Theft Charges

Identity theft, or the unlawful obtaining and using of someone else’s identity information for an unlawful purpose (Penal Code 530.5), can result in felony criminal charges being filed which carry significant penalties. These penalties can include custody, including a possible prison commit, fines, restitution, and the conviction can greatly affect an individual’s future.

Consequences of an identity theft charge are significant and it is important to speak to an experienced criminal defense lawyer at your earliest opportunity. There are things that can be done early on to assist in defending or minimizing charges and consequences in identity theft cases.

The attorneys at Christoph Law Offices have over 55 years combined legal experience representing individuals charged with crimes throughout Southern California. We understand the importance of your case, and we will provide the highest level of personal and professional criminal defense representation.

Identity Theft Case Appraisal

Identity theft can involve credit card fraud, unauthorized use of account information, unauthorized use of personal information, and retail fraud. The penalties for identity theft can vary depending on a number of factors like sophistication, number of incidents, amounts involved, prior record, restitution and other mitigating or aggravating factors.

Every case concerning identity fraud and theft is different. We have been in the same location across from Vista Courts for over 40 years and have dealt on a daily basis with Judges, prosecutors and law enforcement in the Vista Courts and Courts throughout San Diego County. We will explain the process to you, review your case and give you a realistic appraisal of your case. We know what needs to be done in order to help you achieve the best result in your case.
