Shoplifting and Retail Theft


Have you been charged with retail theft or shoplifting?

Having legal representation from a skilled South Carolina criminal defense attorney can give you a fighting chance at having the charges against you reduced or dropped altogether.

With over twenty years of legal experience, Charleston criminal defense attorney G. Edward Hawkins, III, represents clients throughout Charleston County, Berkeley County, and Dorchester County who have been charged with petty theft or shoplifting.
