Robbery offenses include allegations ranging from the sudden snatching of property from an unaware person to the armed entry of a home with a firearm to take property by physical force.  All robberies are punished as felonies and range in maximum punishments from 5 years to life in prison, depending on the various factors used to enhance the sentence.  Certain mandatory sentences may be applicable depending on whether a firearm is used, or the status of the offender.

Prompt gathering of evidence as well as the questioning and investigation of witnesses is vital to an effective defense.  Early involvement of an experienced attorney may eliminate defective or unreliable evidence and uncover poor investigation by law enforcement.  Your right to a fair trial is incomplete without an experienced and effective team to ensure the lawfulness of police procedures, the legality of searches and seizures, and the credibility of witnesses.
