Defense Against Felony Charges: Burglary and Armed Robbery

Felony theft charges are brought against people accused of stealing an item with a value greater than $300. Felony charges are very serious because they cannot be taken off your record like a misdemeanor theft charge. They mean jail time, hefty fines and probation. Burglary and robbery are felony charges. This is why you need to get an experienced defense attorney to discuss your options with you.

  • Burglary: breaking and entering into a home or building with the intent to commit a felony inside (aggravated charges include armed robbery/burglary)
  • Robbery: taking property from another person by force (common examples are mugging, pick-pocketing)

As your burglary and robbery defense attorneys, we work as a team to investigate witnesses against you to determine their credibility. We review all relevant documents and police reports and look for every possible hole in the prosecution's charge against you.
