Robbery Charges — What You Have At Stake
Robbery is a felony theft offense, and a conviction can result in up to 15 years in prison. Armed robbery, which involves the use or threatened use of a weapon, carries up to 20 years. If convicted, your specific sentence would depend on the details of your case, your criminal record, the prosecutors and judges on your case and the effectiveness of your lawyer.
In addition to prison time, convictions result in permanent criminal records that cause a number of consequences — limiting your employment opportunities and more.
We handle tough criminal cases, and we have an excellent record. We are prepared to defend you aggressively and fight for the best possible results.
Skilled Defense Against Robbery Charges
We prevail in challenging cases because we give each case individualized attention to determining the best possible defense strategy — and we have the skills and knowledge it takes to create sound strategies and execute them.
We are prepared to analyze your case and determine the best course of action. Often, we succeed in finding flaws in the police work or the prosecution’s case, resulting in reduced charges, inadmissible evidence and even complete dismissals. In other cases, we fight for not-guilty verdicts at trial, or pursue other avenues to minimize the consequences of a conviction.
