Theft Crimes Dedicated Personal Advocacy

Honolulu Theft Crimes Lawyer

Criminal Defense You Can Count On

From a very young age, individuals are taught not to commit theft, which is the wrongful taking of the property of another individual. The intent is to permanently deprive the person of that property. Theft, or larceny, is a criminal offense that is against the law in Hawaii under ┬ž708-830. Theft is committed when the individual has exerted unauthorized control over another's property. A violation of a theft law can take place with all types of property, including:

  • Real property
  • Tangible property
  • Documents
  • Information
  • Personal services
  • Intellectual property

Depending on what is taken, the value of that property, and the nature of the offense, a theft crime can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. Whatever the circumstance, it is a serious charge that carries devastating long-term consequences.

  • "Would I hire him again? Absolutely."
    I hired Steve for a child custody case in 2021. I see all the reviews that say he is "mean" or "rude" - I would say that he is just blunt and straightforward. He isn't going to get your hopes up just to preserve your feelings. Great guy. he is willing to answer your questions before you even hire him and you can bet that he's honest. Do I think that a 5k retainer was a lot for my case? Yes, but it IS Hawaii and I did hire him 2 months before my actual trial date after going pro-se for a while. Would I hire him again? Absolutely.
