Burglary Attorneys

Providing Legal Defense for Theft Charges in California

A burglary conviction can lead to very serious consequences, including lengthy state prison incarceration. Moreover, the stain of a burglary on conviction on your criminal record can hamper your ability to maintain or obtain employment. It is imperative that you hire an experienced and knowledgeable burglary attorney to represent you against a burglary or theft-related offense. Our aggressive legal team at Second Chances Law Group is prepared to fight for a dismissal or reduction of your charges.

How & When Is Burglary Charged?

You can be prosecuted and convicted of burglary if you entered a structure, room, or locked car and you intended to carry out a felony crime (or petty theft) once you made it inside. The prosecution must be able to prove that you not either entered a structure illegally with the intention to steal, or were legally present somewhere and removed something illegally.

A few common examples of burglary include:

  • Using a crowbar to open the front door of a house and stealing something
  • Crawling in through the window to steal something
  • Walking into someone's trailer to steal something
  • Entering a retail store with the intention of stealing
  • Entering a bank with the intention of cashing a phony check
  • Entering a structure with the intention of carrying out felony battery
  • Smashing the window of an automobile to steal something

Working to Build a Strong Legal Defense

Our burglary attorneys and legal team are familiar with all of the most effective strategies to prove your innocence in a burglary or theft-related case. We work to prevent a burglary conviction, which can bring harsh sentences that include years in state prison, among other penalties. However, an experienced, tenacious, and skillful theft crime defense lawyer can find defenses that best suit your case and help you gain an acquittal, dismissal, or reduction of your burglary charge.

A few examples of the legal defenses we may raise if you have been charged with felony burglary include:

  • No unlawful intent
  • Good faith, but mistaken belief in ownership (claim of right)
  • Actual innocence
  • Illegal search and seizure
