Arrested For Burglary?

In New Jersey, most burglary charges stem from allegations that someone entered a building he or she was not given permission to enter with the intent of committing a criminal offense in the building. Burglary charges vary in severity based on whether the defendant allegedly harmed or attempted to harm another person and whether the defendant allegedly was armed with a deadly weapon. Regardless of how the offense is charged, you face harsh consequences if convicted of burglary. Even the lowest level of burglary — a third-degree offense — carries between three and five years of prison time.

Accomplished Defense Lawyers Fighting For Your Rights

At Lanza & Lanza, our criminal defense attorneys know how to build effective defenses for those charged with all forms of burglary, theft crimes and other serious criminal offenses in New Jersey. We draw on our experience as trial lawyers and proven defense strategies to fight for your rights and attempt to keep a burglary charge from impacting your freedom and your future.

Two of our attorneys serve as municipal prosecutors in Piscataway; this provides us with inside knowledge of how prosecutors will approach a case and allows us to pre-emptively address any arguments that the prosecution may raise.

A History Of Excellence

The majority of our attorneys have been selected for inclusion in New Jersey Super Lawyers list or New Jersey Super Lawyers Rising Stars list in recent years. This continues a long trend of distinction and peer recognition that extends back to when senior partner John R. Lanza began practicing law in 1975. Throughout the years, our focus has remained solely on providing our clients with custom-tailored results designed to seek the best results possible.
