ABQ NM Embezzlement Defense Attorney

As a white collar criminal defense lawyer, I first aim to keep your case out of court, settling with companies in order to have better control over the outcome. I provide embezzlement defense in cases involving:

  • Employee embezzlement
  • Check fraud
  • Mail or wire fraud
  • Accounting fraud
  • Computer fraud
  • Money laundering

It is often advantageous to keep white collar crime cases off the public record. Many businesses prefer to settle embezzlement without the publicity or cost of a trial. If a case is negotiated early, investigations may cease before you are formally charged, keeping the case out of the public arena. Having an efficient white collar criminal defense lawyer working on your behalf could help you to avoid a public trial.

If conviction is imminent in your case, a top criminal defense attorney may be able to achieve a sentence that does not include jail time. Another option is to work for deferred sentencing in which you have a period of time to reimburse the theft in exchange for dismissal or reduction of the charges once restitution has been paid.

Contact me to discuss your embezzlement case. With more than 25 years of experience as a criminal defense attorney, I can provide you with skilled embezzlement defense that may result in a more positive outcome.
