Shoplifting is a frequently encountered offense in New Jersey. In fact, almost every municipal court in the State has occasion to decide at least one disorderly persons charge of shoplifting each court session. And when the charges involve theft of something with a value in excess of $200, an indictable criminal offense (felony) comes into play. If you have been charged with either variety of shoplifting, the lawyers at the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, are ready to assist you. Our firm handles these cases throughout NJ including Middlesex County, Monmouth County, Union County, Somerset County, Essex County, Hudson County, Ocean County and Bergen County.
