Long Beach Burglary Defense Lawyer

Burglary is the crime of entering a building or area with the intent to commit a felony or theft inside. If you have been accused of this crime, you need an attorney who understands the legal process to investigate and evaluate the evidence against you to make sure you are treated fairly and that your rights are protected.

Being Charged with Burglary

When a burglar is able to exit the scene, the victim(s) cannot provide identification; therefore, the prosecution team has to rely on forensic evidence. Your criminal defense attorney needs to be experienced in forensic evidence and understand the weaknesses of such "proof." At West Coast Defense, our legal team has experience and can build a case that defends a burglary charge to the maximum extent possible.

When the charge of burglary is made, it includes whether it is a residential or commercial burglary. Residential burglary charges are more serious due to the likelihood of violence if a homeowner interrupts the act. Residential burglary charges are a strike under California's Three Strikes law and increase in seriousness if the home's occupants were present during the burglary. A commercial burglary can be either a breaking and entering after business hours with the intent to steal or entering a business while it is open with the intent to steal.

Building a Defense from All Angles

If the case is a residential burglary, we can challenge the identification evidence. An after-hours commercial burglary case is subject to a similar challenge. If the case is a business burglary during business hours, we can challenge the intent. These cases can be difficult to prove. Whether you've been charged with a residential or a commercial burglary, we have the experience and skill to defend you and fight for the best possible results.
