Throughout Angela has been the consummate professional. She maintained a calm, yet strong demeanour remained informative and completely open in her communication and took complete ownership of the situation. We felt confident we finally had an advocate to steer us out of the nightmare we were in, and she did so with great respect and sincerity. I cannot speak more highly of Angela. She has literally rescued our family from what looked very much like a hopeless future.
Words can’t describe how grateful I am to Trudie Cameron being my solicitor and to Andrew Tiedt presenting my case in the court. They both have been very supportive and amazingly professional and effective. I’ve got an absolutely fantastic outcome I couldn’t even dream about.
Soon after meeting Andrew I knew he was the solicitor I wanted to handle my matter. He immediately sprang into action which brought me stability and hope during a tumultuous time in my life. Andrew was never afraid to give me straight answers to my tough questions which is a true mark of integrity. He is clearly at ease in the court environment and I believe his calm and measured demeanour went a long way to helping me secure the best result from my day in court. I would certainly recommend you approach Andrew if you need assistance.
"Andrew Tiedt was very professional and considerate to personal circumstances and gave sound advice that resulted in the best outcome possible. Highly recommended."
Property Offences (NSW)
The right to possess and defend property is a basic principle enshrined in the New South Wales criminal justice system. It is a recognition of the value of property in our society. As such, property offences relating to property, for example, stealing, damaging property and threatening to damage another person’s property are taken very seriously. Crimes against property are contained in Part 4AD of the Crimes Act 1900. Many property offences attract a maximum penalty of imprisonment.
If you have been charged with a property offence it is imperative that you seek expert legal advice promptly.
Larceny is the offence also known as theft or stealing. It occurs when a person dishonestly appropriates another person’s property with the intention of permanently depriving them of the property. It is punishable by a maximum penalty of five years imprisonment.
Larceny by clerk is the offence also known as theft from an employer. It is more serious than general larceny because of the breach of trust it entails. It carries the greater maximum penalty of ten years imprisonment. The related offence of embezzlement by clerk occurs when an employee dishonestly approiates funds or property belonging to their employer, before the employer has taken possession of the property of funds. For example, when money is paid to a company via their employee but the employee retains the money to use for themself.
When the offence of shoplifting occurs in New South Wales it is charged as larceny.
Malicious damage of property

Threatening to destroy or damage property
