North Carolina Burglary Attorneys

In North Carolina, Burglary is defined at common law.  Burglary in North Carolina MUST occur at night.  First-Degree Burglary is distinguished from Second-Degree Burglary by whether or not the dwelling was actually occupied by another person when the breaking occurred.  Burglary is a very serious crime that can lead to a hefty prison sentence.  The attorneys at LAWSMITH, The Law Offices of J. Scott Smith, PLLC have successfully handled burglary cases.  In many instances, Burglary charges can be reduced or even successfully defeated at trial.  While nothing can be guaranteed, having an experienced lawyer by your side in a Burglary defense case is important.  Call us for a free consultation.
