Civil Theft

What is Civil Theft? In short, if someone retains your money or property and refuses to return it, you may be entitled to triple damages if you prevail in court under a Civil Theft Claim.

Civil Theft is covered by statute in Florida, and a number of highly technical factors, including the timing and content of the statutory demand letter, can determine whether the claim will be sustained. If you do prevail in the civil lawsuit, the court may order your opponent to reimburse you for part or all of your attorney fees and court costs.

We handle Civil Theft Claims and have found that no two are the same. Sometimes a properly drafted demand letter can lead to a very cost-effective resolution. We always work hard and smart, and that is equally true regarding Civil Theft Claims. Our firm effectively and efficiently analyzes the relevant facts and documents, including an analysis of the elements of proof; we then quickly assess the claim’s strengths and weaknesses and devise a strategy.

We bring our proven boutique approach to our Civil Theft clientele. This means our clients do not deal with layers of gatekeepers – secretaries, assistants, paralegals. Our clients communicate directly with their attorneys. We strive to be direct and responsive. We understand that our clients do not want to wait, they want answers. We go all out to provide efficient and responsive representation.
