Vigorous defense against fraud and embezzlement charges
The most common subsets of white collar crime are fraud and embezzlement. Whether your charge involves credit card fraud, mail fraud, tax fraud, falsifying government contracts or other forms of embezzlement, it is crucial that you seek the help of a skilled defense attorney as soon as possible.

- What is restitution?
When the judge orders restitution to be paid, this is the payment of a sum of money by the defendant to the victim. This money is designed to compensate the victim for the monetary costs of the crime that was perpetrated. Many state and federal laws require some form of restitution.
- Will I be able to return to my previous profession after being convicted of fraud or embezzlement?
In truth, it can be difficult to return to your original chosen profession after a criminal conviction. Many potential employers worry that behaviors from the past will be an indicator of your behavior in the future. If your current employment requires a state license, you are often required to notify the issuing authority and your license to practice your occupation may be jeopardized.
