Felony Burglary of an Unoccupied Dwelling Charges Dropped in Fort Lauderdale, FL by South Florida Defense Attorneys

Felony Burglary Charges Get Dropped by Fort Lauderdale Defense Attorneys

Outcome of Felony Burglary Case:

Kyle went from facing up to 15 years in Florida State Prison to a complete dismissal of his case. Kyle is now in the process of expunging his record & obtaining his degree.

Client Concerns about Felony Burglary Charge:

Kyle was worried that this one mistake would follow him for the rest of his life on his record and affect his education, ability to get a job, get an apartment, and much more. He was also afraid of the ramifications since he was the only ‘adult’ found trespassing.

Facts on Felony Burglary Case:

Our client, Kyle, was already accepted to a college when the situation took place. Kyle’s long-time childhood friend, Joe, wanted to hang out before the two parted ways for college. Kyle went over to his friend’s house like he’s done for years; only this time, Joe had some other friends over that Kyle had never met before. Joe and his friends had plans to head into an abandoned mansion and hang-out inside. Kyle was apprehensive and was visibly scared. After some peer pressure and Joe assuring Kyle that they’ve done it a million times without issue – Kyle hopped into the car with them. Once at the house, it was apparent that the house was indeed abandoned. There was graffiti all over, windows busted out, and doors off their hinges. After 10 minutes, it happened. The sound of sirens rang loud and red/blue lights lit up the inside of the house. The boys didn’t run and walked outside with their hands up. The officers placed each of the boys under temporary arrest. Kyle was the only 18 year old, which means he was treated like an adult, and the other boys were 17, which means they were treated as juveniles. Kyle had no prior criminal history, but nevertheless, the police officer on-scene arrested him for a 2nd Degree Felony of Burglary of an Unoccupied Dwelling. Kyle spent the night in the Broward County Main Jail in Fort Lauderdale. After his parents were notified of the arrest, they contacted us, The Rossen Law Firm. Manny took the call late at night, handled the magistrate hearing the next morning, and got Kyle out of jail without issue.

Strategy of Attack on Felony Burglary Charge:

After the arrest, Adam and Manny were immediately in contact with the State Attorney’s Office filing division. Rossen Law Firm negotiated that client Kyle’s case would be down-filed to a misdemeanor Trespass, and Kyle would be accepted into the State Attorney’s Misdemeanor Diversion Program (MDP).

I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
