Brooklyn Burglary Defense Lawyer

Vigorous Defense against Burglary Charges in Brooklyn

Burglary involves unauthorized entry into a building in order to steal. Penalties vary according to the circumstances. Where one destroys property in order to enter, the penalties are enhanced. Entering a residential building is more serious than entering a commercial one and the amount stolen also affects the charge. If you have been charged with burglary, you are urged to contact a Brooklyn criminal defense lawyer for an aggressive defense. Felonies, including charges of burglary, can lead to extensive prison time if convicted.

Burglary Defense Attorney in Brooklyn

At The Law Offices of David E. Levine we defend clients charged with burglary in the Brooklyn area. When we undertake to represent a client, we learn everything about the case. We review the evidence and interview witnesses. We hire private investigators and forensic experts as needed to prepare our client's defense. Where there have been illegal searches and seizures, we move to suppress the evidence. If our client has made a confession under duress we move to exclude. If it is to our client's advantage and wish, we may seek a bargain with the prosecutor for reduced charges.

Defense at Trial

At trial we insist that the state prove its case and are alert to prosecutor attempts to bias the jury against our client. We object to irrelevant, speculative and prejudicial evidence. We present our client's available defenses including lack of criminal intent or mistaken identity. We appeal to the jury to disregard any prejudice it may have against criminal defendants and consider only on the evidence before them. We urge that if they have any reasonable doubt in the charges to acquit our client.
