Robbery and burglary charges carry serious penalties, including a significant amount of time behind bars.

Led by our founding lawyer, Louis Emmi, our experienced criminal defense team offers you compassionate and effective representation against these serious charges.
Robbery and burglary are not interchangeable terms for the same crime. We know the law, and we know how to build a defense suited to your unique situation. When you turn to our law firm, you will receive both personal attention and aggressive representation against any type of criminal charge.
The Right Defense Strategy For You
The right approach to your defense strategy depends on the specific charges you are facing. Robbery and burglary are different criminal acts, and they carry different criminal penalties. The differences between the two are as follows:
- Burglary: Burglary is the unlawful entry into a building with the intent of committing a crime. The theft of property is not necessary to face charges of burglary.
- Robbery: Robbery involves the use of force to inflict harm or cause the fear of harm in order to commit theft.
While these are two distinct charges, they are both felonies. If convicted, you could face incarceration, fines and other penalties that could affect the rest of your life. Despite the serious nature of the case against you, we will work to find the best approach for your defense, whether that is seeking a reduction or dismissal of charges or defending your interests in court.
