In a moment of weakness or a difficult period in life, normally law abiding individuals may find themselves facing a charge of shoplifting (Criminal Code s. 322 – Theft under $5000). An arrest for shoplifting can be embarrassing and stigmatizing; affecting travel and ability to gain employment. And it can be made worse by the proceedings in court.
Brian Mickelson, Joel Whysall and/or Cathryn Waker will use all the defences known to law to defend shoplifting charges and protect the privacy of their clients. In most cases the clients of Mickelson & Whysall will never be required to attend court to face a shoplifting allegation. The lawyers at Mickelson & Whysall can help prevent you from getting a criminal record as a result of the incident.
