Burglary

Long Island Burglary Defense Lawyers

Burglary is a felony charge in the State of New York. It is often confused with Robbery. The technical definition of Burglary under the Penal Law is the unlawful entering into a dwelling or other establishment with the intent to commit a crime once inside. Thus the crime of Burglary implies a premeditated intent to commit a Penal Law offense.

In both Suffolk and Nassau counties of Long Island, residents charged with burglary turn to Michaelangelo Matera and Michael Elbert for their hard-earned reputation of fighting to get results that matter.

Because Burglary cases often involve the unlawful entering into an individual's home, the local prosecutorial offices treat them very seriously and will most typically only discuss a plea agreement that involves prison time.

Because of this, it is imperative that anyone charged with a burglary offense immediately seek an experienced criminal attorney to represent them. At Matera & Elbert, we have won acquittals after trial for clients charged with burglary. We have also obtained reduced plea bargains, non criminal dispositions and dismissals without the need for a trial for clients charged with burglary, in Suffolk and Nassau County

RECENT TESTIMONIAL

"I know a lot of lawyers but none as unique as Matera."

I tried to go everywhere for help. Friends and family suggested other attorneys. they all took one look at me and first words out of their mouth was a retainer price they saw I couldn't afford before even hearing my problem. Mike welcomed me in like family and listened and cared and tried to help me without even bringing up money before he heard my problem. READ MORE
