Defense Against Robbery And Burglary Charges
A robbery charge is considered to be a felony. It differs from a simple theft charge in that it involves the use of force or the threat of force against another person. There are different degrees of robbery. The severity of the charge depends on the amount of force used, whether the victim was harmed and whether or not a weapon was involved.
A burglary charge is also a felony. In order to be charged with burglary, a person must enter a building or dwelling with the intent of committing a crime. More serious burglary charges will be filed if a weapon was used, if a private residence was broken into or if someone was in the building at the time of the alleged crime.
If you are facing either burglary or robbery charges, particularly when firearms and weapons offenses are also involved, it is important to not talk with the police until you have secured legal representation. We can help ensure that your rights remain protected throughout the criminal process.

Homicide and murder charges are also prosecuted based on degree, with first-degree murder being the most serious. Regardless of the particular degree that you are charged with, it goes without saying that the stakes are high in these cases. Our law firm will thoroughly investigate the circumstances that led to your arrest, and we will work hard to help you get the best available outcome in your case.
