Our experienced Peoria burglary defense attorneys at Miller & Pugh Law Offices, P.C., recognize the harsh penalties you may be facing if you have been charged with burglary in Illinois. As former Peoria County prosecutors, C. Matthew Miller and Robert E. Pugh understand what you are up against and we can provide you with the skilled representation you need to achieve the most effective results in your case.
Tenaciously Defending Your Rights and Safeguarding Your Future
In cases involving alleged burglary, the state must be able to prove that an individual has entered a property to do some kind of illegal act. Using the comprehensive knowledge our lawyers have gained as former prosecutors, our team will skillfully devise a defense strategy that focuses on counteracting the tactics the prosecuting attorney in your case may use against you.
Miller & Pugh Law Offices, P.C., has assisted clients facing a wide range of complicated burglary charges involving:
- Breaking and entering into a building with the intent to commit theft
- Entering a building without permission with the intent to commit theft
- Entering a commercial property with the intent to shoplift
- Residential burglary
Our criminal defense lawyers are dedicated to protecting our clients' rights. Through confidential consultations, we will work together to learn about the circumstances surrounding your case to identify the strengths and weaknesses, ultimately creating a resilient defense plan.
We will identify answers to questions that are vital to the success of your case such as: did you have permission to be on the property? Were there witnesses? These elements are key to casting doubt in your case and leading to reduced charges or possibly a dismissal.
In some cases, our lawyers are able to meet with the charging attorney before official charges have been filed. Our team has had success in minimizing penalties during this early intervention. We urge you to call us as soon as you have been arrested on charges of burglary or other theft crimes.
If you are facing residential burglary charges, contact our firm today. Often, individuals convicted of Class 2 burglary felonies are given the opportunity of probation; those charged with residential burglary are not. Our attorneys at Miller & Pugh Law Offices, P.C., can help you obtain a fair outcome in your criminal case.
