Protecting Your Interests in Residential Burglary Cases

One of the key components of every burglary case is intent. While most people associate burglary with theft of property, burglary charges can be filed for the unlawful entering of a residence for the purpose of committing any crime. In addition, even if the intended crime was not committed — someone walked in before you were able to commit the crime — you can still face charges based on your intent to do so.

When you hire our firm, we conduct a complete investigation of the alleged offense and get your account of exactly what happened. We will build a strong defense designed specifically to overcome the unique challenges of your case. We vigilantly pursue every available option in an effort to beat the charges against you.
