Financial crimes are considered a form of larceny in Virginia, and any theft amount of $200 or more will result in a felony grand larceny charge. These are serious offenses that cannot be expunged, so it is critical that you have a lawyer in your corner who has the ability to help you avoid a conviction above all else.
Having a conviction for any type of financial crime on your record can be extremely damaging to your future. Employers are extremely wary of people with any kind of criminal history, but those with larceny convictions can have an especially hard time finding work. Getting into college, securing certain professional licenses and renting an apartment can also be problematic for people who have been convicted of financial crimes.
If you have been charged with any type of financial crime, do not wait to seek legal representation. The earlier in the process you have a lawyer, the better chance you will have of securing a favorable result. At the law firm of Surovell Isaacs Petersen & Levy, we are committed to protecting the rights of people accused of any type of crime.

If the prosecution has strong evidence against you, our Fairfax financial crimes attorneys will work to negotiate a plea bargain for a lesser offense.
