Hollywood Burglary Lawyer

Defense Against Burglary And Theft Charges In Fort Lauderdale And Throughout South Florida

A conviction for a burglary or theft crime can have a terribly negative impact. In addition to the fines, probation and other legal consequences, burglary and theft crime convictions can cause tremendous damage to your reputation and limitations on your employment and housing opportunities. If you are facing burglary or theft crime charges in Florida, make sure you work with a lawyer who has the experience to defend you and minimize the damage that these criminal charges can have on your life and your future.

As a Hollywood burglary defense attorney, I have valuable experience defending clients against a range of criminal charges, including burglary and theft charges. I take a personalized approach to representing my clients. I am sensitive to the potential consequences you are facing, and I will do everything I can to help you reach the best possible outcome.

As a former assistant public defender, I am aware of the many programs offered by the state for first-time offenders. I am diligent in finding ways to avoid dispositions that would result in convictions on my clients' records. In many cases, when we can avoid a criminal conviction, I can help clients seal and expunge their records from public access.

Theft Charges In Florida

In Florida, petit theft is a misdemeanor that comes with $300 in fines. Grand theft is charged when the amount stolen is more than $300. This is a felony with fines that can range from $5,000 up to $10,000 for a first-degree grand theft conviction.

I defend clients against a range of theft crime charges, including shoplifting charges, petit theft, grand theft, larceny and a range of fraud charges.

Burglary Charges In Florida | Free Consultation

While most people consider burglary a theft crime, this is not necessarily true. Burglary involves entering a building or conveyance without permission with the intention of committing a crime inside. The crime can be a theft crime, but it does not have to be. The penalties are severe for burglary. Burglary of a vehicle or business can result in five years imprisonment, and burglary of a dwelling can bring 15 years imprisonment.

I provide sound legal counsel and strong defense against burglary charges for clients throughout South Florida.
