Developing Effective Legal Strategies For Those Accused Of Embezzlement
The complexity of embezzlement cases can vary considerably, depending on factors such as the amount of money alleged to have been misappropriated, the length of any alleged wrongdoing and the position of the accused.
The firm approaches embezzlement and other white collar crime allegations strategically, carefully examining the relevant evidence in order to devise the most effective legal strategy. In many cases, a client can maximize his or her outcome through strategic pleading. In other cases, it will be preferable to take a case to a full trial. Because the penalties for an embezzlement conviction can be severe, acquittal is always the primary goal, but the firm also endeavors to obtain a reduced sentence when some form of punishment is inevitable.
