For my story, a character wants to break into a defense lawyer's office, and steal a file on the case, which of course would contain information that only the lawyer and defendant would know about it, legally. But would he be able to just break into the officer door, and take the file from a cabinet? Or would he have to hire a specialist to open a complex safe? Originally I wrote it so that the character breaks into the lawyer's computer to get the information, but I was told by a couple of other writers that computer hacking is a trope used too often, and I should go for something else. But with all the computers used nowadays for things like that, do attorneys even have their cases in files on paper anymore? Does anyone know? Thanks for the input. I really appreciate it.
