OKC Embezzlement Charges Defense Lawyer
At Jacquelyn Ford Law, P.C., we are your OKC Embezzlement Charges Defense Lawyer and we help individuals deal with highly complex embezzlement charges in both state and federal courts. Depending on your alleged crime, investigators may have spent a significant amount of time collecting evidence against you. So when the matter is turned over to prosecutors, they may be inclined to push for a conviction. That’s where our legal team can help.
Ms. Ford has extensive experience handling high-stakes white collar criminal matters and has a solid track record of success at trial. As your counsel, she will help you understand the charges against you and clearly explain all available defense strategies.
Managing Embezzlement Charges
Embezzlement is more than simply stealing money. Embezzlement charges require that you had some form of fiduciary duty to an organization or individual. Examples of these positions can include a bookkeeper, an accountant or a bank employee. If you are facing these charges, it could be for any number of reasons. Maybe you have a drug or gambling problem. Maybe you were having other financial difficulties at home. Regardless of the reason, we know that you do not consider yourself a hardened street criminal — and neither will we. We know that good people make mistakes and that now more than ever you need help fixing that mistake. We can begin by arranging a restitution plan to repay the money. This goes a long way with prosecutors when plea negotiations begin. Our firm can also help you address any underlying issues that have brought you to this place. If needed, we can help you get into drug rehab or Gamblers Anonymous, or help facilitate financial counseling.
We Can Help Before You Have Been Formally Charged
If you suspect or have evidence that law enforcement is investigating you for embezzlement, it is vital to take immediate action in order to protect yourself. By getting a lawyer involved before charges are filed or before an indictment hearing, you may be able to prevent being charged or indicted all together. Whatever you do, do not speak with the police unless you have an attorney present. Investigators are specifically trained to solicit information that can be used against you. When attorney Ford represents you, she will handle all communication with police and ensure you do not make any statements that will harm your position.
