Miami Embezzlement Defense Attorney
About Embezzlement Charges in Miami
Embezzlement is a theft crime defined as dishonestly appropriating or the hiding assets of another when you have been entrusted with those assets. Usually this occurs when a person who is in a position of trust at their job steals their company's assets. At Seltzer law PA we have the experience to help you defend charges of embezzlement. You may find yourself charged with embezzlement if you have spent money from client funds or accounts, if you have under-reported profits, if you have billed from a false vendor account, created phantom employees or altered receipts or account information. Charges of embezzlement can be classified as a misdemeanor or a felony and tried in a state or a federal court depending upon how much was involved and the type of business that you worked for. Our firm has the awareness and legal judgment to provide you with the best defense possible and build an effective strategy that will stand up against the prosecution's case in court.
Defenses Against Embezzlement Charges in Miami
In order to prove its case, the state has to show that you intended to temporarily or permanently deprive the true owner of the property or assets, and that you intentionally spent, took or used the entrusted property without the consent of its owner. At Seltzer Law PA we can successfully defend you if you have been charged with embezzlement. If you had a good faith belief of ownership or the right to possess the property at issue, or had the owner's consent to possess or use said property, there is a very good chance the charge can be reduced or dropped altogether.
