Robbery And Burglary Charges

Robbery and burglary charges carry severe consequences. Not only do you face an overwhelming emotional and financial burden, but you could also face a mandatory state prison sentence. The impact this could have on your record will dictate your personal and professional relationships in the future.

It is important that you retain an attorney who understands the law and will work diligently to help you obtain an outcome that serves your best interests. This requires hard work, a commitment to your case and the willingness to take your case as far as it needs to go.

At my firm — Scott G. Cerbin, Esq., PLLC — I have a strong reputation as a trial attorney, and the prosecution is well aware of my intentions as I aggressively defend your rights. But my understanding of this area of law goes beyond my legal experience. In fact, I became a lawyer thanks to the dedication my attorney afforded me when I was charged with a burglary crime. His work inspired me to go to law school and become the lawyer I am today.

For more than a decade, I have worked with individuals throughout New York City as they face the following charges:

  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Petty larceny (Petit Larceny under NY Penal Law)
  • Grand larceny
  • Check fraud
  • Internet fraud
  • Identity theft
  • Forgery
  • Criminal possession of stolen property
  • Property crimes such as criminal mischief, trespass, and arson

I will artfully negotiate the terms of your case with the district attorney's office in a way that promotes your well-being and supports the development of a brighter future for you and your family. I will carefully investigate the circumstances of your arrest to ensure that your arresting officer followed protocol, in addition to examining witnesses and any other significant parties.  I will discuss the grand jury and indictment process with you and determine whether it would be beneficial for you to testify before the grand jury.  I believe it is very important for a client to be fully informed and understand what is happening in every stage of their case.

I am available any time of the day or night to speak with you about your case. When you contact the firm, you will speak directly to me. I believe there is an extreme advantage in working directly with my clients — I am able to cultivate solid, trusting relationships that result in the best outcomes possible.
