We're not trying to scare you into picking up the phone and calling us. If you were arrested and charged with burglary, you already know what you're facing - a stretch in prison. You may or may not be afraid of that. But you won't call us for something you already know. You might call us, though, because it's our job as criminal defense lawyers to erase or minimize this stretch in prison. And it's hard to put a price on that.
What you might not know is if there have been other burglaries in the area, prosecutors and cops could try to connect you to those as well. That could mean multiple burglary charges and a longer sentence in prison than you thought. And if you had a gun or other weapon on you, the prison sentence gets worse - around 20 years or so worse, depending on the situation.
At Suzuki Law Offices, our Phoenix criminal lawyers defend people against burglary charges and all other types of theft crimes. Eyewitness testimony and security cameras can be unreliable, so we work with private investigators and forensic experts to challenge the evidence. Our goal is to do our best to get the charges dismissed, get you an acquittal, or arrange a favorable plea bargain.
In Arizona, there are three different degrees of burglary carrying different kinds of penalties.
