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.


I wanted to thank the Draper Law firm for representing me in my recent personal injury case. It was truly a pleasure and honor to work with the firm, and I had a wonderful experience working with the staff, who was very friendly and courteous throughout the entire process.
The quality of legal service more than exceeded my expectations. The attorney answered all my questions, treated me with respect, and explained every detail - every step of the way. This was important to help me understand the process. In fact, I was made to feel like "part of the family" from the very first appointment.
I would definitely recommend the staff of attorneys at Draper Law Office to anyone who is seeking legal services, as I believe they, too, will have a great experience. In addition, should I ever need services again, Draper Law Office will be my first call.
Once again, I thank you and your staff for a wonderful and seamless experience; I would like others to also learn about it so they too can benefit from such great service.
