Property Crimes

When charged with a property crime, you need an attorney who understands the legal issues and can raise valid defenses.

Prosecutors and law enforcement sometimes use the criminal justice system as a collection agency in civil disputes. Many property crime cases show nothing more than a disagreement or dispute about property rights. Serious property crimes alleged in the course of a divorce or domestic disagreement often involve two people with competing claims regarding their rights to possess or occupy the property.

Although these accusations are serious, the law provides important defenses that can be asserted by an experienced attorney. Don't make the mistake of just pleading guilty.
