Defending High-Profile Clients Against Embezzlement Charges

My name is Marc E. Hart. My law firm is devoted exclusively to criminal defense, bringing 30 years of criminal trial experience to your situation. Rather than just going for the quick and easy plea, my mindset is to vigorously fight the allegations, win the case at trial, or find the leverage necessary to minimize the penalties and collateral consequences in every client’s case.

Simply stated, embezzlement is stealing. It's a type of theft most often associated with white collar crime. It involves stealing property entrusted to your care — or using it for your own gain.

Like other theft charges, penalties in embezzlement cases range in severity depending on the value of the property involved and the vulnerability of the victim. At The Law Offices of Marc E. Hart in Royal Oak, we have successfully defended high-level corporate executives, small-business employees and others charged with embezzling amounts ranging from $1 million down to a few hundred. You don't have to go to prison, even if you got caught with your hand in the cookie jar.

Accusations of embezzlement often overlap with other serious charges such as:

  • False pretenses
  • Mail and wire fraud
  • Conspiracy
  • Racketeering
  • Forgery
  • Money laundering
  • Larceny
  • Elder abuse

These charges are often leveled against corporate executives and employees who have access to company assets and money: bank tellers, accountants, bookkeepers, treasurers and the like. Embezzlement charges can also cover scenarios outside the employment context. For example, embezzlement charges can be brought against someone responsible for managing the money of an elderly loved one or against someone in charge of a neighborhood charitable organization.

Whatever your situation, one thing is clear: If you are being accused of embezzlement or other fraud-related charges, you need an experienced, aggressive defense lawyer.
