Embezzlement can have significant consequences for all those involved, from those accused of committing it, to the organization and the public. At The Law Offices of Parviz A. Heshmati, we look at embezzlement from a broad view, helping defend our Nevada clients facing allegations and working toward solutions that can benefit everyone.
Embezzlement, generally, involves stealing money from an employer. It is a white collar crime that encompasses a wide range of circumstances, including:
- CEOs stealing millions of dollars
- Lower ranking employers stealing money
- Retail employees using charge backs, employee discounts or returns to pocket company profits
All of these offenses carry the possibility of severe consequences such as jail, state or federal prison, fines and restitution. Prosecutors are aggressive in seeking convictions, so you need effective defense representation. The earlier you contact our firm, the better. We are aggressive in seeking to prevent accusations from becoming formal charges.
If you are asked by your employer to sign any documents or confessions, do not do so. If your employer wants to schedule a meeting to discuss the situation, do not attend. These are opportunities for you to make incriminating statements that will later be used against you. Before you do anything, consult a lawyer. Contact Las Vegas embezzlement attorney Parviz Heshmati.
In addition to protecting your rights, we can attempt to convince your employer not to seek criminal charges. Doing so could eliminate the chance for the employer to recover their money. We emphasize the effectiveness of working out informal resolutions.
