Dedicated Defense Against Charges Involving Property

Criminal charges involving property, whether trespassing, breaking and entering, causing damage or more, can have severe penalties. When your future is at stake, you need an experienced lawyer to assist.

At Lane, Hupp, & Crowley, PLC, our attorneys together have represented individuals across Arizona for almost four decades. We know the law and how to use it to protect your rights.

Experience With A Wide Array Of Offenses

Property crimes can be wide-ranging. We defend against charges involving:

  • Damage to real or personal property. Criminal damage charges can be misdemeanors or felonies. Such offenses occur after the offender intentionally or recklessly damages or tampers with the property of another, including residential or commercial buildings or real estate.
  • Arson. Penalties for arson depend on the case, including whether individuals were present at the time of the fire. Charges can result from both reckless burning and knowingly damaging a structure by causing a fire.
  • Burglary. Burglary charges arise when there is an allegation that the subject entered the property unlawfully (criminal trespassing) with the intent to commit a theft or felony inside the property. Even possessing burglary tools, such as pry bars, master keys, explosives, or other instruments, can lead to the filing of similar charges.

These charges and more can lead to severe penalties, including potentially years of jail time, fines, probation time and more.

Identifying A Customized Strategy For Your Case

We do not employ a one-size-fits-all approach to any criminal defense charge. We take the time to listen to you, thoroughly investigate your situation and anticipate the case against you, before determining a customized strategy to pursue the most optimal outcome for you.
