In short, embezzlement is stealing from your employer. If you stole a small amount or thousands of dollars, or if you are wrongfully accused, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side. Attorneys understand the criminal justice system and what you face when you are investigated or arrested for embezzlement.
Call the Law Office to schedule a consultation. They represent people facing embezzlement and employee fraud charges.
Their experienced defense attorneys understand the law and how to protect your rights against white collar crime and embezzlement charges such as:
- False billing
- Employee theft
- Employee fraud
- Credit card fraud
- Illegal transfer of money or property
These crimes may be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the amount of money embezzled. A conviction for embezzlement or employee theft may have very serious consequences, including a prison sentence, fines, mandatory counseling, years of probation, and loss of employment. Merely being accused of embezzlement may make it difficult for you to obtain any jobs in the future.
Often, you will suspect you are under investigation long before you are arrested. Talk with an attorney about your situation. They will protect your rights and work hard to minimize the chance of criminal charges being filed.
With the assistance of an experienced, skilled defense attorney, you may be able to secure a civil compromise with your employer, instead of facing criminal conviction and potential jail time. Depending on the facts of your case, they may be able to negotiate restitution with your employer in exchange for their dropping criminal charges.
