Property Offenses- Burglary, Robbery and Theft

Defense of burglary, robbery, theft and other property crimes depend on careful analysis of the details, and a skilled lawyer can build a successful defense on facts that many people might overlook. The police and prosecutors often build their cases on vague and unreliable evidence: easily suggestible eyewitness testimony and photo line-ups, “guesses” about the value of property or damage, mistaken conclusions about physical evidence, and even simple mathematical errors. In the defense of property crimes, each detail counts.

Burglary, Robbery, Theft, Fraud, and More

Property crimes include a wide range of criminal charges:

  • Theft
  • Criminal Trespass
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Credit or debit card abuse
  • Arson
  • Fraud
  • Money Laundering

A conviction for theft or another property crime can lead to serious consequences and can affect your job, your credit, and many other important facets of your life. It is important to consult a lawyer as soon as possible and to hire a lawyer before you decide to talk to the police.
