Houston Theft Defense Attorney

Theft is a term that covers many specific offenses. It specifically means to intentionally deprive someone of their property without the intent to return it. Charges of theft are very serious offenses. A theft conviction can disqualify you from most jobs and can have major immigration consequences if you are not a United States Citizen. Additionally, theft is considered a crime of moral turpitude. This means that a conviction of one of these crimes can have major implications. If you were cited or arrested for a theft charge, contact Attorney Sean R Darvishi for a free consultation at 832-766-4019. IF YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN A TICKET FOR SHOPLIFTING DO NOT PAY THE FINE. THAT IS A CONVICTION.

Theft Crimes in Texas Include the following:

  • Identity Theft
  • Fraud
  • Forgery
  • Shoplifting
  • Employee Theft
  • Unlawful Use of a Motor Vehicle
  • Embezzlement
  • Theft by Check
  • Theft of Metal
  • Tampering with Personal ID Numbers
  • Possession of Stolen Property

Theft has a wide range of punishment depending on the amount allegedly stolen which can range from a fine up to 99 years or life in prison. You should exercise your right to remain silent and make or write no statements to anyone. The old “come clean and we will go easy on you” tactic is just not true

helping people everyday

Mr. Darvishi represented me in an assault case. I made a big mistake but luckily Sean was really aggressive in his approach! He may be young but prosecutors respect him! I was able to get a pre-trial diversion where my case would be dismissed!!! I would highly recommend. He took the time to meet with me at his office multiple times and do what needed to be done!


Mr. Darvishi represented me in getting my record sealed in Houston for an event that happened a few years ago. He was really good at keeping me up to date with what was going on and he made me feel really comfortable. I saw him convince a prosecutor into agreeing to have my record sealed and I was impressed! Definitely going to recommend him to my friends!
