Skilled Defense Against Identity Theft Charges

Identity theft is a rising concern of law enforcement officials and prosecutors. In fact, the Harris County District Attorney's Office has established a major fraud section as part of its special crimes division that focuses on identity theft as part of its overall effort to combat financial crimes.

If you have been charged with identity theft, it is critical that you retain an experienced criminal defense lawyer to protect your rights. For the strong defense you require, contact the law office of John M. Petruzzi in Houston.
