A: Identity theft is a serious matter, and California law has provisions to address such violations. Given the nature of your situation, you should consider hiring a criminal defense attorney or a civil litigation attorney. They can help you navigate both potential criminal charges against the perpetrators and civil remedies to rectify any damages you've suffered. Immediately report the theft to your local police department and the Federal Trade Commission. Monitoring your credit report and placing a freeze on your credit can also be proactive steps to mitigate potential damages.

Additionally, contacting the California State Bar's lawyer referral service can aid in finding a suitable attorney in your area. Remember to document all evidence and interactions related to this matter to assist in building a strong case.
