Property crimes can be against people (for example, robbery) or against property (for example, arson). They can involve coercion or violence, or not.
At Rivers Law Firm, P.A., we understand the requirements each of these offenses requires for conviction. Our task is to ensure that the requirements for convicting you are not met. Attorney Bruce Rivers does this with energetic preparation, effective action during discovery, and persuasive argument before judge and jury.
Many times people charged with property crimes are young, with no appreciation of the trouble they are in. Bruce Rivers works to protect young offenders from harsh treatment, so their lives are not ruined by a single error in judgment.
