Theft & Fraud Attorneys in Tampa

Closeup of a judge's gavelThe Tampa theft and fraud attorneys at KFB Law are here to help protect the rights of those accused of a theft- or fraud-related crime.

As defined by the state of Florida, theft is when a person knowingly, intentionally, and unlawfully obtains or takes another individual’s property against that individual’s will or without their consent, either permanently or temporarily.

There are several degrees of grand theft, all of which are felonies, while petit theft is a misdemeanor. The degree of theft is determined solely by the value of the item that was taken without consent or authority. There are many different types of grand theft. Some examples include:

  • Shoplifting, if the dollar amount exceeds $300.00
  • Grant theft of a motor vehicle, as the value of most automobiles exceeds $300.00
  • Theft of a firearm, which is considered a felony regardless of the value
  • Dealing in stolen property and theft of communications services – both are criminal acts, and are seen as taking something from others without asking permission

Fraud charges usually involve allegations of deceit or trickery over another to gain profit.
