Fighting Embezzlement Charges in Wisconsin

Embezzlement is one of the most common types of white collar crimes. Depending on the amount of money in question it can be charged as a state crime or as a federal crime. If you have been accused of embezzlement or have reason to believe you are being investigated, it is in your best interest to discuss your defense options with an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

I have been providing a defense against state and federal charges in Madison and surrounding communities for more than 35 years. You can rely on me to examine your situation, determine your options, and work aggressively to limit your exposure to criminal penalties and collateral consequences.

An Embezzlement Conviction Can End Your Career

Embezzlement and other theft charges are particularly damaging because acts of theft represent a breach of trust. It is difficult if not impossible to find gainful employment with theft crimes on your record.

Early intervention is critical for protecting your reputation, your rights and your future opportunities. It may be possible to clear up misunderstandings and avoid charges altogether if you have an attorney on your case as soon as possible. If the investigation does result in charges, I will be prepared to negotiate a favorable plea or take your case to trial to pursue an acquittal.

Put My Experience on Your Side

Now is not the time to leave your defense in the hands of just any attorney; you need an experienced criminal defense attorney. As a former federal prosecutor with more than 35 years of defense experience, I am ready to navigate the system on your behalf.
