Northern California Embezzlement Attorney
Call my office at 1-800-420-5667 immediately if you are accused of embezzlement. You need an embezzlement attorney to represent you in court. This can be theft from an employer, or misuse of resources that have been entrusted to you. Besides facing criminal or civil penalties, being accused of embezzlement will affect your employment and may prevent you from finding work in the future. I am experienced with criminal embezzlement cases and am well versed in California embezzlement law.
What An Embezzlement Accusation Means
Embezzlement doesn’t always mean theft, and doesn’t always concern large amounts of money. In fact, you could be accused if you use something entrusted to you without permission. If you are accused of taking a firearm, a car, or property valued over $950, then your charges become grand theft and can be charged as a felony or misdemeanor. Grand theft penalties start at one year of jailtime and increase depending on the circumstances of your case. If you are charged with petty theft, you face up to 6 months in jail and/or fines.
Risks & Penalties For Embezzlement
Besides the risk of incarceration, embezzlement charges are damaging to your reputation. If accusations become public, you will likely have trouble finding work in the future. You need to quickly address these charges and seek a dismissal before they get too much attention. Preserving your reputation and avoiding criminal penalties are my two top priorities when I represent you. We’ll handle your case properly and quickly to minimize criminal and civil penalties as well as harm to your reputation. I have no problem taking your case to trial, but may suggest a plea bargain if it protects your reputation. In any case, I will advise you of the options and risks you face. Your freedom and reputation are important, so I will always help you make decisions that are in your best interest.
Protecting Your Reputation
Your employer may also be liable for defamation of character if they have publicly and wrongfully accused you. You may be eligible to seek compensation for the harm to your reputation. Me and my team can help you with all aspects of your case. From initial accusations to filing countersuits, I can help you every step of the way.
