Criminal Defense Attorney - Burglary in Minneapolis and Saint Paul

Burglary is a misunderstood crime.  Most people believe Burglary is a theft related crime - breaking into a home to rob it - but Burglary is actually breaking into a building with the intent to commit any crime or breaking into a house and committing a crime inside.  The penalties for burglary are particularly harsh for home invasions and the mandatory minimums are not taken lightly.  If you or a loved one has been charged with Burglary you should contact a skilled attorney to defend your rights and protect your family.  Contact us immediately to schedule a free initial consultation, 651-243-2538.
