Criminal Law

A common misconception is that a Burglary is a theft charge. It is not. This misconception comes from the fact that Burglaries are commonly committed with the intent to steal something from the place being burglarized. A Burglary is more closely tied to the crime of trespass, as a Burglary is basically a trespass with the intent to commit a crime in the place being trespassed upon. For example, a burglary can be committed with the intent to commit other crimes such as battery. This can be even more serious than if committed with intent to commit a theft.


Testimonials

I have engaged Draper Law Offices for three (3) different accidents.  My experience with this firm has been excellent each time, with positive results in my favor.  Charles Draper kept me informed throughout the process of each claim.  He was always available when ever I needed him to answer any questions.
 
The staff could not have been more courteous and helpful to me.  They never made me feel that I was bothering them (and I called quite a lot, believe me).  After a while they seemed like family.
 
I certainly would engage Draper Law Office (Charles Draper) if another problem would occur.
 
My recommendation to other people as to Draper Law Office would be “FIRST” on my list.
 
They are true and loyal to their clients.
 
I thank them from the bottom of my heart.
