Joliet Financial Fraud Lawyer

Illinois Embezzlement Defense Lawyer

Embezzlement offenses involve the taking of money or property by a person who has been entrusted with their care. The penalties for a conviction in embezzlement cases can be quite severe and may include fines, jail time and restitution, among others. The higher the value of the property taken, the more severe the penalties will be.

In addition, a person with an embezzlement conviction on his or her record can have an extremely difficult time finding employment, obtaining credit and finding a place to live. With so much on the line, avoiding a conviction in these cases is essential. If you are facing charges for embezzlement, be sure that you have a reliable Joliet financial fraud attorney representing you from the start.
