Utah Embezzlement Attorney
Embezzlement is a white collar crime that involves the illegal taking or appropriation of another person’s assets. This act can range from a minor amount of money to large amounts of cash and other holdings. Frequently, embezzlement charges arise in the context of a business in which an employee, executive or president has illegally appropriated funds for his or her personal use.
Embezzlement can occur in any type of business, including banks, financial institutions, government offices and private retail businesses. These cases are often complex in nature and are best defended with the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney. There are a number of ways embezzlement cases can be settled or dismissed. Talk to our firm to discuss the options you may have, including paying back your employer, coming to an agreement or showing that the accusations are unfounded.
Time Is Of The Essence
If you have committed the crime of embezzlement or believe you may be the subject of a criminal investigation by state or federal agents, the best way to protect your rights is by being proactive. Retaining the service of an experienced criminal defense lawyer early in your case is extremely important.
In many cases involving a white collar crime, a resolution can be reached that results in no criminal conviction or minimizes the criminal penalties that might have resulted without the early intervention of a defense attorney. Sometimes it is possible to avoid contact with law enforcement entirely.
