Joliet Residential Burglary Lawyer

Illinois Theft Defense Lawyer

Residential burglary is an extremely serious crime that calls for some extremely severe penalties, including a mandatory prison sentence if you are convicted. The only way to stay out of prison in these cases is to avoid the conviction altogether. If you or someone you love has been charged with residential burglary, it is important that you seek the advice of a reliable criminal defense attorney who will fight to protect your rights.

Joliet residential burglary attorney, Steven Haney has been trying cases in Will County court rooms for more than 25 years, including a number of residential burglary matters. As a former Will County prosecutor, he knows what to expect from his opponents throughout the process and can effectively counter them at every step.

Protecting Your Interests in Residential Burglary Cases

One of the key components of every burglary case is intent. While most people associate burglary with theft of property, burglary charges can be filed for the unlawful entering of a residence for the purpose of committing any crime. In addition, even if the intended crime was not committed — someone walked in before you were able to commit the crime — you can still face charges based on your intent to do so.

When you hire our firm, we conduct a complete investigation of the alleged offense and get your account of exactly what happened. We will build a strong defense designed specifically to overcome the unique challenges of your case. We vigilantly pursue every available option in an effort to beat the charges against you.
