    If you are allegedly discovered entering a building or vessel with the intention of stealing or committing a felony, you can be charged with the serious offense of burglary. Depending on the circumstances, your punishments can be very severe.

    Because of the seriousness of the case, it is important to retain the legal services of an experienced Redwood City and San Mateo defense attorney. Attorney James Dunn from the Law Office of James Dunn has the experience and resources necessary to help you fight your case. He has more than 18 years of experience defending individuals who are charged with various crimes.


    California burglary laws are found under Penal Code § 459. In order to be convicted of burglary in the state of California, the prosecutor will need to prove that you entered the building with the intention of committing a felony.

    There are two degrees of burglary in California: first degree and second degree. The primary distinction between the two charges is that burglary in the first degree requires the person to have actually entered the residence with intent to commit a felony. For that reason, first-degree burglary is also called residential burglary. Second-degree burglary pertains to any other type of structure.


    At the Law Office of James Dunn, the criminal defense attorney wants to provide aggressive representation for clients who are in the midst of complex criminal charges that could negatively impact their life.
