Embezzlement & Fraud
The crimes of fraud and embezzlement are on the rise. These White-Collar crimes are usually the result of desperate financial circumstances and poor decisions. Whether the amount of theft is relatively small (in the hundreds) or relatively large (over $100,000), then I can help. The primary goal of the victim in these cases is to be compensated for their loss. The secondary goal of the victim and the court is punishment. Often compensation is directly related to punishment. I have had many cases where the defendant was simply required to pay back (restitution) the loss incurred from the theft in order to receive a reduced sentence and/or reduced charge.
