If you have been arrested for burglary (residential or commercial, i.e., shoplifting), robbery or other theft charges, it is important to get a case evaluation as soon as possible from an honest and experienced criminal defense attorney who can give you a straight forward opinion of the most likely outcome of your case.
I am Keith H. Rutman, a San Diego County criminal defense lawyer with nearly 20 years of experience. I defend clients against both misdemeanor and felony theft related charges, including burglary and robbery, in San Diego, Temecula, Murrieta and throughout Southern California. I have thorough knowledge of the rules and procedures of all local courts, and I have developed respectful relationships with the prosecutors and judges who handle criminal cases in San Diego County courts.

Understanding Your Charges
- Robbery — The crime of robbery involves taking or attempting to take the property of another individual by threat, force, or intimidation.
- Burglary — The crime of burglary involves entering any dwelling or commercial establishment with the intent to commit a felony, including but not limited to theft.
- Theft — The crime of theft involves feloniously stealing, taking, carrying, leading, or driving away the personal property of another.
Full-Service Criminal Defense Attorney
My job as your criminal defense lawyer is to explore every possible avenue to build a strong defense on your behalf. I will review the police procedures used during your arrest and any search and seizure — if I am able to uncover violations of your Constitutional rights, then I may be able to argue for suppression of evidence and possible dismissal of the case. I will conduct an independent investigation into the circumstances surrounding your arrest — looking for information about witnesses that makes them less credible.
My goal in all cases is to prevent a conviction if at all possible, or to minimize the negative consequences that may result from a conviction.
