Cases involving property crimes are often very fact intensive. If you have been charged with robbery, burglary, or another form of theft you need an experienced, aggressive criminal defense lawyer to protect your rights.
I have over 20 years of experience in defending clients in state and federal criminal courts throughout Colorado, and know how to use the facts in your favor. Before making any statement that could hurt your case, contact my Denver office to talk about your matter.
Robbery and armed robbery
Robbery is the taking of anything of value from a person or presence of a person by the use of force, threats, or intimidation. Aggravated robbery is during the course of the robbery, the actor is armed with a deadly weapon or simulated deadly weapon. These charges are very serious and carry a lengthy prison sentence if convicted.
Generally, burglary is the breaking and entering into a residence, office or other building with the intent to commit another crime, such as theft. This crime may be enhanced by the presence of a deadly weapon, or any act of violence. Obviously, these cases are very fact intensive and require an experienced criminal defense attorney to protect your rights.
Theft is a broad category that includes shoplifting, credit card theft, identity theft, check fraud and any other illegal means of taking another person's property. I have the experience to effectively defend clients charged with all levels of theft.
Without a strong defense you are at risk of being unfairly convicted or sentenced. It is the prosecutor's job to convict you-it is my job to see your Constitutional rights are protected.
