    "Hard Work and Dedication"
    Russell McCormick is an excellent attorney. With Russell's professional expertise and knowledge, my son received a lesser sentence. Thank you for your hard work and dedication.
    - Carla B.
    "Forever Grateful"

    Russell McMormick’s firm has been amazing. We reached out to his law firm for help and were given clear instructions on how to move forward. We followed those instructions and my son was given early termination. We are so grateful!

    - Angel E.
    "The Guy to Get it Done"
    If you need a lawyer who can get it done, Russell McCormick is your guy. Easy to talk to and if he said he was going to do it, it was done. Daily updates even after hours. He exceeded all expectations.
    - Nina M.
    "He is Simply Amazing"
    Words can't even describe how awesome Russell B. McCormick is! He is simply amazing. He truly listens and cares, whatever your situation may be. My case was dropped and I'm just so thankful for what he's done for us.
    - Shawna L.
    Called the McCormick office in trouble, with my freedom on the line. Russell answered the phone himself and confirmed he took on my type of cases. He took my information down and we scheduled a consultation. When I arrived for my consultation, he already had the information about my case,and a plan to come to my defense, already in tow! That made me confident in hiring Russell. However, my case had gotten thrown out (unbeknownst to me) and even though I paid the retainers fee, he sent me a refund.In reality he could have kept it. That right there is why he'll forever be my go to attorney if I needed one. Ready to defend and honest when need be. I appreciate him and Ms Dorothy and highly recommend. Thanks again!
    - Jones
    "Outstanding Representation"
    Mr. McCormick did an outstanding job representing my son, he’s always professional and response in a timely manner. Not only him, but Ms. Dorothy as well!
    - Victoria C.
    "Aggressive for the Best Outcome"
    All around a great lawyer. We were able to have all the charges against me dismissed. He was aggressive in reaching the best outcome for me and he did it at a cost no one would have considered.
    - Abdul Z.
    "Much Love and Respect for This Man"

    Russell is by far the best defense attorney in Jax. He did an amazing job with my case. Has the respect of the state's attorneys and the judges as well, which if you know how the law works is important for your defense. 

    - Eric G.

Some common defenses to theft charges include:

  • Mistaken identity: If you have been falsely accused of theft, you may be able to argue that you were not the person who committed the crime. This is a common defense in theft cases, especially when the crime was committed by someone who was wearing a mask or other disguise.
  • Consent: If you had the owner’s consent to take the property, you cannot be convicted of theft. This is a common defense in theft cases that involve disputes over ownership.
  • Intoxication: If you were intoxicated at the time the theft was committed, you may be able to argue that you did not have the intent to commit the crime. This is a common defense in theft cases that involve shoplifting.
  • Entrapment: If you were induced to commit the theft by a law enforcement officer, you may be able to argue that you were entrapped. This is a common defense in theft cases that involve sting operations.
