Embezzlement Defense

Embezzlement, also referred to as employee theft, can be charged in a wide range of circumstances. Retail employees accused of taking hundreds of dollars from cash registers may be charged with embezzlement. Executives accused of siphoning millions of dollars from their employers may also be charged with embezzlement. With more than 20 years of experience on our side, we can defend against all embezzlement charges.

You should discuss your case with us as soon as possible, even before charges are filed, so we can work with your employer or investigators to prevent the filing of charges.

Money Laundering Defense

Money laundering charges are serious by themselves. They are made more serious by the fact that they are typically paired with other charges. For example, a person may be accused of embezzlement for stealing from an employer and money laundering for attempting to clean the stolen money through any number of means. We can defend against all charges.
