Don’t let embezzlement allegations destroy your personal and professional life. Hire Michael L. Fell for your defense.

Many people think of embezzlement as a high-profile white collar crime involving huge sums of money or highly valuable property. But the reality is that most cases of embezzlement are far more mundane. Anyone who takes cash or items of value from their employer may be charged with embezzlement.

Consequences of Embezzlement

Even an accusation of embezzlement can make people start to doubt their trust in you. A conviction can make them lose faith entirely, and can have a devastating effect on your personal and professional life.

If you hold a state-issued license, you could have your license suspended or revoked, and no matter what field you work in, you will quickly discover that an embezzlement conviction on your record makes it very hard to find a good job. In addition to these serious problems, you could of course face criminal penalties including jail time and fines.

With so much at stake, you need the best criminal defense attorney you can find:

You Need Michael L. Fell

Michael L. Fell is a Board Certified Criminal Law Specialist who understands all the technical details involved in embezzlement cases. As a former Orange County Senior Deputy District Attorney who prosecuted cases for over 18 years, he can not only help you present a strong defense against criminal charges for embezzlement, but also provide assistance should your case bring you up for discipline before a professional board.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, Attorney Fell may be able to help you avoid prosecution entirely. This could happen if he is able to prove that:

  • You believed in good faith you were permitted to use the money or property allegedly embezzled
  • You had no criminal intent
  • You were falsely accused

If strong evidence for any one of these elements can be found, the prosecution will likely drop the case, or at the very least agree to a favorable plea deal that could save you from jail time.

Now you may wonder…

…what if I repay the embezzled money? Will that solve my problems?

Unfortunately, repaying the money that you have stolen by embezzlement –even if done voluntarily before anyone even noticed your crime—will not prevent charges from being filed. But there are mitigating factors as orchestrated by Attorney Fell which may be helpful in negotiating your case.
