Protecting the Rights of Clients Who Have Been Accused of Burglary

If you have been accused of breaking into and entering someone else’s home, business or vehicle, you could be charged with burglary, a serious felony criminal offense. It is important to contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your options.

I am Zach Murphy, a Phoenix burglary defense attorney serving clients throughout the metro area. As a lawyer who has been practicing criminal law in Arizona since 2002, I am committed to providing my clients with personal attention backed by extensive experience.

Carefully Investigating the Specific Allegations Against You

Burglary is defined as unlawfully entering into a structure, enclosed space or motor vehicle for the purpose of committing any type of theft or any other felony offense. Depending on the specific allegations involved, burglary can be charged as a class 2, class 3 or class 4 felony.

Burglary charges are often brought alongside other criminal charges such as theft, increasing the potential penalties and other consequences that defendants face.

If you retain me to defend you against burglary charges, I will carefully investigate the facts of your case in light of the specific elements that the prosecutors must prove. I will then negotiate with the prosecutors on your behalf and aggressively defend you at trial if necessary.

If you have been accused of participating in a home invasion or committing any other type of burglary in Arizona, you can rely on me to protect your rights and your future. To schedule a free consultation, please contact my office in Scottsdale at 602-788-2188 or by e-mail.
