Cobb County Burglary Attorney

Skilled Criminal Defense Lawyer in Georgia

Burglary, or the unlawful entry into a home or other structure with the intent to commit a crime, is taken very seriously by the Georgia legal system. A conviction can result in jail time, heavy fines, and a criminal record, all of which can change your life dramatically. You need a Cobb County criminal attorney who can fight back against your charges and work hard to avoid a conviction at all costs.

You have certain rights, no matter what you have been charged with, and The Sylvan Firm, LLC has the experience to help when you get arrested. My name is Coleman Sylvan and I have a background working in the District Attorney’s office, meaning I understand how prosecutors work to obtain a conviction and use this knowledge to outmaneuver them in your case.

I have been listed in the Top 100 National Trial Lawyers thanks to my successes in the hundreds of criminal defense cases I have handled, so trust me to fight hard on your behalf when you face criminal charges!

Burglary Crimes in Georgia

Georgia recognizes three degrees of burglary which can determine your sentence if convicted. It is my firm’s job to push back against any claim that you were somewhere you were not supposed to be.

Burglary charges depend on the circumstances of the arrest:

  • 1 st degree —unlawfully entering a private home or vehicle intending to commit a crime
  • 2nd degree —entering a business or commercial property and committing theft
  • 3 rd degree —entering a home, business, or structure intending to commit a felony

The serious nature of these charges is evident by the fact that you could face from one to twenty years in prison for a conviction and more for repeat offenses. Speak with a Cobb County criminal lawyer from my firm immediately to begin building your defense!

The Sylvan Firm, LLC Can Come to Your Defense

One common defense is challenging the prosecution’s contention that you intended to commit a felony on another’s property. Intent is quite difficult to prove and if this presumption can be challenged you may be unable to be charged with burglary.

Instead, we can argue that you have a right or otherwise valid reason for being where you were, or that you simply were in the wrong place without having criminal intentions. Whatever the nature of your case, my firm is ready to handle it by providing you the legal counsel you need at this time and fighting hard to protect your future.
