The Details of Embezzlement
Embezzlement is a type of fraud that revolves around a betrayal of financial trust by one or more parties to a transaction or series of transactions.
Commerce usually relies upon one party to a transaction placing trust in another party’s honesty. A client has to trust that the person he’s paying will use the money in the agreed-upon way, and a business has to trust that employees who handle the firm’s finances are directing the money appropriately.
How We Can Help
The classic example of embezzlement is a high-ranking executive funneling company funds into his own bank account. However, these cases are often much more complex than that, and if you’re accused of embezzlement, finding the right criminal defense law firm to represent you will be crucial if you are to demonstrate your innocence.
No attorney can promise you an acquittal or a favorable plea deal. There are no guarantees in the law, and if a lawyer tries to promise you a specific result, you should find another attorney.
Still, finding the right criminal defense law firm means a lot. We can use our decades of experience to help you by:
- Negotiating with your company to find an out-of-court solution
- Examining the relevant financial data
- Finding flaws in the prosecution’s case
- Investigating the details of the case
- Negotiating with prosecutors to reach a plea deal
