Potential Serious Lifetime Consequences

Being convicted of any degree of robbery will be negatively impact your life forever.

Certain adult and juvenile offenses carry a long mandatory prison sentence. Most convictions preclude employment in children, elder, daycare, law enforcement, education and health care related fields.

Many defendants arrested for robbery are technically only guilty of theft. Often a well-worded letter drafted by me enclosing sworn witness statements will convince the prosecutor to “drop” or reduce your prosecution.

More About Robbery Crimes

Promptly retaining me to pursue every viable criminal defense on your behalf is crucial. Fact finding and witness location immediately post arrest is important to being found not guilty.

Often I can convince the police and prosecutor to not prosecute your child as an adult because of mitigating factors. Often the victim is a former friend or “ex”. I am skilled at presenting your testimony and evidence persuasively. I know how to cross examine the alleged victim and their witnesses so the jury will not consider them credible or find you guilty based on false evidence presented by them.
