A case of burglary or possession of stolen goods can result in either a felony or a misdemeanor charge, depending on circumstances ranging from the value of the property involved to the defendant's prior criminal record. Our first goal is to find ways to keep the most severe offenses from being charged against you in the first place. Then we take a close look at the actual charges, each of which the government needs to prove beyond a reasonable doubt.
Our review of the facts can often show that the case isn't as strong as it looks, especially if we can identify specific weaknesses in the government's evidence. If you're facing charges of theft or property destruction during a big house party, for example, we can assess the credibility of the witnesses who pointed you out as the prime suspect, and develop your defense from there.
This approach can lead to the dismissal of serious criminal charges or the reduction of more serious charges to lesser offenses, such as pleading a burglary case to a lighter charge of unlawful entry. Our experience in property crime defense can help you resolve criminal cases involving the following:
- Burglary of residences, businesses or public buildings
- Breaking and entering, unlawful entry or trespass
- Destruction of property associated with vandalism or domestic situations
- Receiving, possession or sale of stolen property
- Auto theft or unauthorized use of a motor vehicle
- Juvenile charges associated with burglary or other property crimes
