Not sure whether you need a burglary attorney, a robbery lawyer or a criminal defense lawyer for a lesser crime of theft? Well there are very important differences you should know.
Burglary crimes are defined as unlawful entries of a building or structure to commit a felony or theft. Most people falsely confuse being "burgled" with being robbed. If you've committed a burglary crime, our burglary attorneys are ready to defend.
Robbery crimes are defined as taking something from another person by using force, threats or instances of intimidation. There are different degrees of robbery that carry severe punishments based on the details of your case. Our criminal defense lawyers are ready to advise your on the best course of action, as these cases can be very complicated.
Shoplifting & Theft
Like smoking, shoplifting has become almost a right of passage for many kids while growing up. The law, however, does not take such a lenient view of retail theft, and views all shoplifting, from "prankish" shoplifting to carefully executed retail larceny, as serious theft crimes.
Legal penalties for shoplifting vary with the amount of merchandise stolen, and can range as high as jail time and expensive fines. If you were accused of shoplifting, you need experienced legal help to fight your charges and protect your rights.
Violations frequently occur at area retailers, including CVS and ShopRite. Cases frequently occur from Paramus Mall and Secaucus Mall.
Our criminal defense lawyers can investigate your case and work to minimize your charges or argue for your innocence. Our methods include:
- Did a misunderstanding lead to shoplifting charges? We have successfully argued for dismissal of shoplifting charges, and for full acquittal in court
- Are your charges at the felony level? We can often successfully show that the merchandise in question is worth less than claimed, and have charges reduced to a misdemeanor
- Do your charges include a robbery charge? Past clients' charges have been inflated simply because the ran into someone while existing a store. We can work to minimize charges and consequences
