Theft offenses are considered a crime of moral turpitude — a reflection on your character. If you are convicted of stealing from an employer, that could affect your future, including job opportunities.

Accused Of Stealing From An Employer?
We handle all levels of employment-related theft, including:
- Embezzlement from company funds (e.g., cash accounts)
- Accounting fraud
- Self-dealing (writing checks to oneself on employer accounts)
- Breach of fiduciary duty (e.g., misuse of client funds)
- Theft of merchandise or property
- Theft of services
We will explore possible defenses. We will assert mitigating factors such as a financial crisis fueled by a drug or gambling addiction. We can explore mitigating circumstances. We will explore remedies such as restitution to avoid prosecution or alleviate the punishment. And we can explore alternative sentencing options such as accelerated rehabilitative disposition that result in dismissal of charges if you comply with all conditions of the court.
