As your burglary attorney, we will work hard to help you beat the charges against you
Burglary charges can be confusing. For example, most people don’t realize that you can be charged with burglary even if the alleged incident didn’t involve theft. Burglary is defined as entering a building or room with the intent to commit any felony or theft once inside. Charges can apply even if you do not actually end up committing the intended felony or theft.
When you choose Perlmutter & Pourshalimi as your burglary defense attorney, one of the first things we’ll do is make sure you understand the charges against you. We’ll also review the facts of your case to make sure you’ve been charged with the correct type of burglary. From there, we can formulate a personalized legal strategy for the specifics of your case. We handle all kinds of burglary charges including:
- First degree burglary (burglary of a residence)
- Second-degree burglary (commercial burglary)
- Auto burglary
Possible Burglary Defenses
There are several possible defense strategies that can be very helpful in burglary cases:
- You formed the intent to commit a crime AFTER entering the building (in which case there is no burglary; though you may be charged with another offense)
- You legitimately believed you had a right to the items you took (in case of burglary based on theft)
- You were falsely accused
- There is insufficient evidence
As your burglary defense attorney, we will thoroughly investigate your case to determine which strategy will provide the best defense argument in your particular case.
