Ohio Embezzlement Attorney
White collar crimes very rarely ever begin with truly criminal intent. Most often, the money is taken as a "loan" and the employee has every intention of paying it back. Unfortunately, these good intentions seldom come to fruition.
If you have been charged or arrested with a white collar crime, I encourage you to contact my office immediately so I can begin to investigate the allegations made against you and prepare your defense.
I am Samuel B. Weiner, a Columbus white collar crime defense attorney who represents clients in communities throughout Ohio charged with a wide range of crimes, including:
- Bank fraud
- Wire fraud
- Mail fraud
- Money laundering
- Identity theft
The most common form of white collar crime I am called upon to defend against is embezzlement. Embezzlement, or employee theft, is a serious crime with far-reaching implications and consequences. The crime can range from an employee taking a few dollars out of a cash register to a CEO using sophisticated computer software to divert funds into a personal bank account.
If Money Can Solve the Problem, Then There Is No Problem
My first course of action is always to work with your company in a collaborative manner to negotiate a settlement before a trial becomes necessary. Many times, individuals have a retirement account that can be used to repay any missing money. My ultimate goal is to protect your rights and ensure your freedom. As your lawyer, I will investigate all legal avenues of repayment to encourage your company to settle.
