Auto Theft Defense Lawyer in Van Nuys 

The vehicle owner’s consent is a key part of any grand theft auto case. Your lawyer will need to work to prove that you did not take the vehicle, that the owner actually did give consent, or that you did not intent to permanently deprive the owner of the vehicle. At times, it may be found that certain evidence was obtained through an unlawful or unreasonable search and seizure. If this is the case, your Van Nuys grand theft auto lawyer can work to have that evidence suppressed so it is not used as direct evidence against you in court.
