Burglary Defense Lawyers

If you are charged with a burglary or theft crime, it can haunt you forever. Many people worry that they will lose their jobs or that they will be kicked out of school if they are convicted. Students might lose a prestigious scholarship or a chance to apply to the perfect internship.

Adults also find that years later, court records show up on credit reports and background checks. Employers are reluctant to hire applicants with a history of what they consider to indicate a history of dishonesty. From our office in Toms River, we serve clients throughout New Jersey.

Your Life And Career Are Too Important To Leave To Chance

In many situations, we can work with the prosecutor to lower the charge against you. If there are not any other aggravating circumstances, like drugs, injury or violence, you may have options that do not so drastically affect your life. Society categorizes these types of crimes as "shameful." As a result, the person accused of theft could be stigmatized for the remainder of his or her life in some way.

Burglary and theft crimes include misdemeanor- and felony-level criminal acts, including:

  • Shoplifting
  • Robbery
  • Embezzlement
  • Stealing and using credit cards and checks
  • Carjacking
  • Using or hiding stolen property

The presence of other criminal factors like drugs, guns or minors during the commission of the theft or burglary will significantly affect the charges brought against you. We are here to advocate for you and obtain the best result possible.
