Facing Embezzlement Charges?

White Collar Crime Lawyer Serving Stuart, FL

Embezzlement charges can bring serious penalties, especially when a person’s business reputation and standing in a company is at stake. When an individual who has been given responsibility or a level of trust commits a theft against their company, it is considered embezzlement. This could include money, actual property, or any other type of company asset. The value of these assets will also impact the charges.

Penalties for Embezzlement Offenses

When an employee is found to have stolen assets from their company or business, they may be up against serious and life-altering repercussions. This may include spending money from client funds, altering receipts or account data, creating phantom employees, or even underreporting the profits the company has made for their own benefit. Whether their offense is a misdemeanor or felony will depend on the worth of the property or amount of money that was involved in the crime.

Words cannot describe the outstanding jobMr. Gorman did on my husband’s case. The case was not simple or easy, it was just filled with terrible circumstances. An event that could have ruined the lives of our family for years to come. He somehow was able to get some extremely serious charges reduced significantly.....the outcome was far better than we were ever expecting or hoping for. If he at times cannot get back to you right away, it is because he is working his magic. We will never forget him and will forever be thankful to him.read more

Mr. Gorman is nothing short of exceptional. I went to Jeff as a second opinion as I didn't feel my lawyer had my best interest at heart. Upon consultation, I immediately hired Jeff. He was professional, precise, and extremely knowledgeable of all aspects of law. He is nothing short a miracle. Needless to say, I received no jail (facing up to 30 years). Mr. Gorman and staff always kept me informed and fought for me. I would highly recommend him. It doesn't get any better than him.read more

Mr. Gorman is not only a great attorney by in my book, he’s a magician. He defended me on a “VERY SERIOUS” case with multiple charges (I will not mentioned here). From a 25 year sentence in which 17 would had been minimum mandatory, he managed to have serious charges dropped/abandone and was able to get me a deal that I was able to do at home. I hired him on a VOP (Violation Of Probation) for the same case and he was able to have the court reinstate my probation as we had proof that I in fact did not violate probation. Lastly, I hired him once again on an accident case in which I got injured and his attorney, Erika was able to get top dollar for such. I could go on with positive feedback. Overall, I’m 100% satisfied from day one. I won’t call any other attorney as he has proven to work for you every step of the way.read more
