Burglary Criminal Defense Attorney San Mateo

Burglary is a common offense charged by the district attorney. Don’t put your fate in the hands of an inexperienced criminal lawyer, a burglary attorney without knowledge of the law, or a criminal defense lawyer too busy to take a personal interest in your case. Ross Green, a former Deputy District Attorney, has effectively served those in  Redwood City (CA), Palo Alto, San Jose and the surrounding areas.

A burglary occurs when a person enters an enclosed structure with the intent to commit a felony or a theft. A burglary of a commercial establishment or vehicle can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony and is often referred to as second degree burglary.

Should fighting your case at trial not be the best option, talk to your attorney about the possibility of an alternative sentence, such as community service, electronic home monitoring or work furlough. A plea bargain can often be negotiated to reduce fines or allow for an extended payment period.
