Florida Civil Theft Help

Russell Law and Patrick Russell, Esq., a Miami Fraud Lawyer can assist you with Florida Civil Theft cases. Florida Civil theft is when one party intentionally deprives another party from the rightful use or possession of property. In other words, the taking of another person’s property and refusing to return that property upon demand.  Civil theft as opposed to criminal theft punishes the guilty party with money damages rather than jail time.  By law, the measure of damages is three-times the value of the property that has been taken and not returned.  The taking of money or failing to pay a debt when demanded is not considered civil theft.  Civil theft only applies to tangible property and not debts.  In order to make a claim for civil theft, you must by law send a statutory civil theft notice to the party that has taken your property.  Failure to provide proper notice will prevent you from making a claim for treble damages.  Should the property not be returned to you after receipt of the civil theft notice, you are then able to file a lawsuit to recover treble damages for the property that was wrongfully taken from you.
