While burglary is a serious felony offense, there are many cases where someone enters someone else’s home or structure without the intent to commit theft or another serious crime. While it is illegal to enter onto someone else’s land or into someone else’s dwelling or structure uninvited, there are many instances where someone might enter someone else’s property for more harmless reasons. If you are charged with burglary, you need a knowledgeable lawyer who can protect your rights and defend your interests.

We represent clients who are facing burglary and related charges, including:
Burglary involves entering an occupied place with the intention of committing a crime. This crime may be charged as a felony depending on the circumstances, such as if a weapon was brought with the trespasser. A person will be charged with aggravated burglary if they physically harm another person while trespassing or if they have a weapon.
If a trespassing person brings a firearm and is convicted of aggravated burglary, they will face an additional prison term of up to seven years. This extra prison time must be served before the sentence for the underlying burglary conviction. Because of the long prison sentences and other consequences of a burglary conviction, you need a competent defense lawyer by your side.
Our attorneys will work closely with you to understand your side of the story. Often, a person did not intend to commit another crime when they entered the residence, or there is more to the story. We will investigate your case and find the mitigating circumstances that could reduce the consequences that you face.
Our attorneys can review your case and give you a straightforward evaluation of what to expect. Our lawyers know every case we work within the most comprehensive manner possible.
