Theft by employee, a matter of miscommunication?

On Behalf of | Apr 9, 2014 | Petit Theft

You trust them like a family member. When your most trusted employee steals from you it shakes your confidence and makes you wonder who that person really was all along. But what if there is more to the story?

I’ve heard all kinds of cases involving office managers embezzling from companies, to something as small as a retail employee stealing from the cash register.

As awful as all of this sounds, there are many people who are wrongfully accused of stealing. How can a defense attorney help them out of this dire situation?

As criminal defense lawyers our top priority is making sure the prosecuting attorney has a legit case against you. There is a chance, after all, that there was some miscommunication between you and the company you worked for. No one wants to lose their job and face public humiliation like this.

Our goal is to minimize the potential negative impact you might face during this legal ordeal. 

We will investigate every possible angle of this accusation. Did store cameras catch you “stealing”? Did you actually intend to borrow and not steal? Did any other employees see you taking items or money? Was there anyone from the company who disliked you and perhaps was looking to frame you for this crime.

Uncovering the truth is essential in any petit theft or embezzlement case. If you didn’t steal, why should the legal system steal time and money away from you? Our law firm fights to protect our client’s legal freedom and a clean criminal record.
