Connecticut Property Crimes Attorney

If you or someone you love are facing property crimes charges, you are not only facing criminal penalties, like potential imprisonment and fines, but also potential consequences at work and reputationally in the community following an arrest. Call our team of experienced and creative attorneys to see how we can help protect you and your loved ones during this trying time.


Most people hear “property crimes” and think “theft.” But that is a different area of the law. Theft crimes, like larceny, involve the unlawful taking of another person’s property. What about something more basic? What if you own property and tell someone to leave, but they won’t do it? What if a kid accidentally burns down a neighbor’s house while playing with fireworks? What if a friend of yours drunkenly throws a rock through a storefront window?

None of these incidents are “theft,” but are all crimes against another person’s property. That’s what we mean when we are talking about property crimes.

At Black’s Law Group, we know that regardless of whether you are facing felony or misdemeanor property crimes charges, you are likely concerned, overwhelmed, and in unfamiliar territory. Picking up that phone and calling a team of experienced and creative criminal defense attorneys, like ours, is your first step towards protecting yourself. Call us today for a free consultation. Until then, here are some basics on property crimes in Connecticut.

What are some common property crimes?

  • Arson
  • Reckless Burning
  • Home Invasion and Burglary
  • Criminal Trespass
  • Criminal Mischief

Property crimes, like any other criminal offenses, are classified in degrees and include both felonies and misdemeanors.

Common defenses against property crimes charges

Defending against property crimes charges is often a multi-faceted approach, often, because property crimes are indeed crimes, but can be resolved through pretrial settlements where an aggrieved property owner can be made whole. However, this process is never as simple in criminal court as in civil court because of the ramifications of any outcome in criminal court that may ultimately involve a conviction.

That’s why, at Black’s Law Group, we always thoroughly investigate the law and facts of a case early in the process to determine the best course of action and advise our clients throughout that process. In property crimes cases, this often involves a holistic approach of appealing to mitigating factors in the case, like adverse consequences to you, and combining it with efforts to make the other party whole, while also advocating on the merits of the legal case.

Our team of experienced and creative property crimes attorneys have persuaded prosecutors to drop charges outright, guide cases like these into diversionary programs, and negotiated substantially reduced charges in serious property crimes cases where clients were no longer program eligible. Where those options are not advisable or appropriate in your case, our team positions your legal case like any other criminal case and prepares the matter for trial before a jury or the court.
