San Francisco Embezzlement Attorney
Embezzlement is a white collar crime, and involves the theft of your property, but it’s a type of stealing that requires a breach of trust. If you own or operate a California business, at some point in time, it’s almost inevitable that someone will embezzle from you. Most embezzlement is small – office supplies or a few dollars from petty cash – but the number of larger embezzlements is growing. If your business is the target of embezzlement in northern California, seek help at once from the experienced San Francisco embezzlement attorneys at the law firm of Geonetta & Frucht. With more than fifty combined years of business law experience, we are the firm that business owners in northern California have come to trust for business-related legal advice, services, and representation.
WE HOLD EMBEZZLERS ACCOUNTABLE
While larceny or theft is the taking of someone else’s property, embezzlement normally is conducted by taking funds from someone who trusted the embezzler with them. It can be an employee taking from an employer, a fiduciary from a beneficiary, a lawyer from a client, or any similar circumstance. The average business person may be dumbfounded to learn that police departments and prosecutors are less than zealous about investigating most embezzlement cases and reticent to prosecute the guilty party without a full signed confession. How can you seek justice? The remedy is a lawsuit. Our San Francisco embezzlement attorneys will hold the embezzler responsible in court and fight tenaciously throughout the trial for the reimbursement and compensation you deserve.
Most states and the federal government do have significant criminal penalties if the embezzled amount is substantial. In California, the embezzlement of $400 or more is grand larceny, and a felony conviction, which carries serious penalties, is possible if embezzlement can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
