Fraud and Embezzlement Charges

There are a number of criminal acts that can be classified as either fraud or embezzlement in the eyes of the law. Some prime examples include mail fraud, bank fraud, credit card fraud, securities and mortgage fraud, money laundering and embezzlement.

The main goal of your criminal defense attorney is to prevent you from being charged with the crime through condemnation. This means that he or she will work to ensure that you are considered and treated as innocent until the legal system proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that you are guilty. The reasons for this are numerous, but the prevailing reason is because being charged with a crime such as this has to potential to significantly damage your reputation and ability to secure future employment even if you are found innocent of the charges.

In addition, allegations of financial impropriety in the workplace make it difficult for most to those who choose to stay in their current positions to excel. Trust is lost and suspicions by fellow coworkers can make having a collaborative workplace almost impossible.
