Central Florida Embezzlement Defense
Being accused of embezzlement can mean the loss of your job, the loss of your reputation within your professional community, steep fines and jail. How you react to being charged can help decide what your future looks like for years to come.
Many of the people who are charged with embezzlement are bookkeepers and others with sensitive access to a company’s funds. The inner accounting mechanisms of a company can be very complex. Legitimate payments might be mistaken as fraudulent or the temptation to use the company’s funds to help through a time of difficult personal finances can lead to errors of judgment.
Take Action Before Any Investigation Is Complete
No matter what the circumstances of the case, there will be an investigation to gather evidence and determine if embezzlement charges are appropriate. Many times, people are well aware that they may be the subject of, or potential collateral damage in, a forensic accounting investigation. By securing legal representation during the investigation, we can begin to counter the investigation. Charges can be avoided altogether by taking action early.
