Our robbery defense lawyers have in-depth understanding of robbery laws; our experience helps us give our clients an edge in legal proceedings.

How does a prosecutor attempt to prove your guilt? He must prove that the defendant took property that did not belong to him/her. Additionally, the prosecutor must prove that the property taken was in the immediate possession of another person, that it was taken against the owner’s will, the property was taken by force and that in the using of force or intimidation to take the property, the accused purposefully meant to deprive the owner of the property permanently.

There are many defenses that a skilled robbery defense lawyer may use to defend the client. One defense is that the accused did not have the intention of taking property prior to or at the time that force or intimidation was used.
