Call for Advice About Fraud Charges
Our attorneys have helped people with all sorts of white collar crimes, including:
Credit Card Theft and/or Fraud
Employee theft or embezzlement
False statements to federally insured financial institutions
Identity theft or fake ID cases as stand-alone charges or as part of a bigger prosecution
Welfare or public assistance fraud
Passing bad checks
Our lawyers have recently defended several cases involving public assistance fraud in the Virginia courts, often for benefits received several years ago. The state authorities decide that food stamps or daycare vouchers were improperly paid, then go straight to prosecution instead of trying to work out arrangements with a person who now might be employed and ready to pay back any improper benefits.
If you are trying to find a good embezzlement defense lawyer in Fairfax, you have come to the right place. Our attorneys have defended countless cases of embezzlement over the years, ranging from relatively minor thefts by cashiers at retail stores, to allegations of long-term and repeated thefts sometimes totaling in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. These cases are always complex and the consequences of pursuing the wrong criminal defense strategy can be severe. Embezzlement means that the alleged theft of property has been accomplished by virtue of one’s employment or other position of trust, which is an inherently aggravating factor in the eyes of most prosecutors and judges. Compounding matters, when the behavior has been going on for some time, it can be a challenge to convince others to treat it as a first offense, even though the defendant has no prior record. Time and time again, our attorneys have been up to that challenge, successfully achieving results of no or minimal jail time in numerous embezzlement cases in Fairfax and other local jurisdictions. If you have been accused of embezzlement in Fairfax or Northern Virginia, give one of experienced criminal defense lawyers a call as soon as possible to discuss your case.
Our experience with fraud cases of all kinds means that we can focus on the issues that can help you the most: Can the government prove an intent to defraud? Would it make better sense to work toward restitution? Would a criminal record make it harder for you to keep a job and support your family? Is there any way to avoid this?
