Criminal defense attorney representing Phoenix citizens in trespassing cases

Criminal trespassing is charged when one allegedly was intentionally on another’s property without permission or when one refuses to vacate after being asked to do so. Arizona trespassing charges can range from a class one to a class three misdemeanor, depending on the circumstances. Cases involving entry into one’s residence will typically be charged more aggressively than matters involving a business. Common trespassing cases handled by the Barber Law Group include:

  • Accusations of entering the property belonging to a private residence
  • Accusations of entering a nonresidential, but non public land or building illegally
  • Attempting to return to a bar, restaurant or other public business after being ejected
  • Being accused of trespassing following an argument with a friend, romantic partner, or family member
  • Being accused of trespassing while attempting to reclaim your personal property from another

Trespassing charges are often charged in conjunction with other matters such as disorderly conduct, damage of property charges, domestic violence, or allegations of having violated a protection order. Hiring an attorney to assist you is crucial to your future.
