Fraud and embezzlement, although they can often involve large sums of money, are just other forms of theft. The term embezzlement usually refers to theft from one’s employer, while fraud is a broader term that involves obtaining money or other valuables from others by deception or trickery.
At my Phoenix law firm, the Law Offices of Howard A. Snader, LLC, I expertly defend clients against embezzlement and fraud charges. In addition to my many years of experience practicing criminal law, I have been certified as a Criminal Law Specialist by the Arizona Board of Legal Specialization. This combination of knowledge and experience makes it possible for me to develop strong legal strategies that often results in acquittals, dismissed charges or reduced charges.
Examples of Fraud and Embezzlement Cases
I have successfully defended clients against fraud charges such as:
- Credit card fraud
- Ponzi schemes
- Money laundering
- Corporate fraud
- Securities fraud
- Mail and wire fraud
- Identity Theft
- Misuse of Credit Card
Embezzlement often involves accounting practices that allow individuals within an organization to divert funds to other accounts or recipients. In many cases the embezzlement may have occurred over a long period of time and involve large sums of money. This makes the restitution part of the penalty for conviction almost impossible for most people. They are often forced to liquidate their assets to begin repayment. The stakes in cases of fraud or embezzlement are very high and require an experienced defense lawyer to obtain favorable results.
