Embezzlement We Will Fight to Protect Your Rights, Freedom & Future

Atlanta Embezzlement Attorney

Straightforward, Aggressive and Committed Defense

Embezzlement is a type of monetary fraud and can include offenses ranging from an employee taking cash out of the boss's register after work, to a letter carrier stealing mail, to a financial officer misappropriating client funds. It is a federal crime and often charged as a felony. If you're under investigation for embezzlement or facing charges, you must act quickly! Contact an Atlanta federal criminal defense lawyer at The Law Offices of Howard J. Weintraub, P.C. before talking to the police or allowing a search of your property.

Whether you are under investigation by the U.S. government or have been charged with committing a federal crime, you need a law firm experienced in defending people in federal court. You don't want to error by retaining an attorney who has no federal court experience to defend you against charges such as embezzlement, extortion or conspiracy. With more than 55 years of combined experience and a former federal prosecutor on our team, we have the skills to defend your rights, and may be able to get the charges against you reduced or win an acquittal.

Penalties for Embezzlement Convictions

The exact penalties for embezzlement depend on the position of trust or authority that has been exploited and the amount that has been taken. Penalties for a conviction could include:

  • Imprisonment of up to 30 years for the most serious of charges
  • Exorbitant fines and restitution amounts
  • Loss of ability to be bonded
  • Tax evasion charges
  • Given the complexity of charges that may be levied against you and the severity of the penalties the court may impose, it is strongly recommended that you turn to the law firm that provides defense in federal crimes as a central part of its practice.
