Mineola | Hempstead | Central Islip | Riverhead

Queens County | Nassau County | Suffolk County

Under New York law, a burglary occurs when a person knowingly enters or unlawfully remains in the residence or dwelling of another person with the intent to commit a crime. Burglary is always considered a felony, but the severity of the charge depends on a number of factors, including whether the defendant displayed what appeared to be a firearm. The consequences of a conviction on a burglary charge can be severe. You want an experienced lawyer to protect your rights. We can help.

At the Law Offices of David W. Haber, in Mineola, New York, we have more than a decade of criminal law experience. A former felony prosecutor in Nassau County, Mr. Haber understands how state attorneys evaluate, prepare and present criminal cases. Because we can foresee the strategies and tactics they will use, we can help you take proactive steps to protect your reputation, your freedom and your future.

We know from experience that the criminal justice system can be intimidating and confusing, with its own set of rules and language that can be difficult to decipher. We will fully explain the law and the legal process, as well as your options, and will always provide you with a realistic assessment of your likelihood of success. When you hire us to defend you against a burglary charge, you will work directly with attorney Haber at all times, never with an associate, paralegal or staff member.

Our Burglary Defense Practice

We aggressively defend anyone charged with burglary, handling charges of:

  • Burglary in the first degree, a Class B violent felony
  • Burglary in the second degree, a Class C violent felony
  • Burglary in the third degree, a Class D felony

We will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances in your case, reviewing police reports and talking to witnesses to determine the merits of the case against you and identifying all potential defenses, including consent. We will also look at how law enforcement officers obtained evidence against you, confirming that there was probable cause for any search or seizure, and that police did not illegally obtain any statements from you without properly advising you of your rights.
