Breaking and Entering

A Massachusetts burglary charge is felony offenses that can have serious consequences, including jail time, restrictive conditions appropriation and can designate you with the status of having a felony conviction on your criminal record.

To prove a charge of breaking and entering the Commonwealth must establish that

  • you broke in entering of a dwelling of another
  • during either the day or night time
  • with the intent to commit a felony.

In many cases the defense can center on whether the breaking and entering was with the intent to commit a felony. There is a related a charge of breaking and entering with the intent to commit a misdemeanor, which is a misdemeanor criminal offense, carries less potential of jail time upon conviction or a violation of probation and sometimes a charge for breaking and entering for a felony can be reduced to a misdemeanor level. In any Massachusetts burglary or breaking and entering case, there is the likelihood that the government may ask for bail given the nature of the allegation, and the potential consequences of a conviction.

Michael was very professional and explained the process clearly and told us to be patient. After one year the charges got dismissed in the trial. Excellent knowledge of the court systems in the area of Boston. Would highly recommend him
★★★★★
A careless decision on my part left me facing charges which would have severely hampered my ability to stay employed and support myself. But attorney DelSignore's skillful analysis and challenging of the evidence against me resulted in a conviction on a lesser charge. Now I'll be able to go on with my life, having learned a lesson I'll never forget. Thank you, Michael. Scott
★★★★★
Mike stuck with my case for 3.5 years and always kept me informed regarding the status. Ultimately, because of his due diligence, we ended up with an OUI not guilty verdict. This case could have gone many ways but his thorough review of the case and exceptional preparedness for trial ultimately drove a positive outcome. Thank you Mike! David

★★★★★
I cannot express the gratitude towards both Michael and Julie for their amazing work and help. It was a very stressful event and they certainly put me at as much ease as possible. From start to finish it took 14 months and all the way through they were both very engaged with me. Today was worth the wait, Michael was great in court and I was rightfully found not guilty. I would recommend Michael and Julie over and over again. Claire
