A Chicago Criminal Defense Attorney

A Chicago Embezzlement Attorney

Embezzlement is the legal term for employee theft.  It is a category of white collar crime and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent.  If you are aware or suspect that you are being investigated for embezzlement in the Chicago area, contact us here at the law office of the Chicago attorney as soon as possible.  

Some embezzlement cases are seen as less serious and will be charged as misdemeanors, while others involving larger sums of money (or goods valued at a large sum) will be charged as a felony crime.  A single act of embezzlement could be an employee charging personal expenses to a company credit card and then falsifying records of doing so. A more extreme case of embezzlement may be a company accountant or executive misappropriating a large amount of money from a company account. 

The amount and type of punishment you face depends heavily on the crime itself.  Misdemeanor embezzlement offenders will probably receive the least amount of punishment possible---fines, community service, and perhaps a small amount of jail time.

If you know that you have committed the crime of embezzlement, contact our office to discuss your options with the Chicago attorney immediately.  If it can be proved that you did actually commit a crime, we may be able to convince your employer to settle out of court or make a deal with the prosecution. The Chicago criminal defense attorney will quickly review your case and create a plan of action for your case. 

If you believe that you or someone you know could have possibly committed the crime of embezzlement, contact the law office of the Chicago criminal attorney immediately for your consultation today.
