San Antonio Embezzlement Lawyer Defends Your Rights

Aggressive Texas defense attorney represents fiduciaries charged with theft

Charges of embezzlement can ruin your professional reputation and irreparably harm your career. Embezzlement is often a felony crime, so a conviction can result in significant prison time and an order to pay restitution. Because of the potential consequences, it’s essential you retain a proven criminal defense attorney at the earliest point possible. Tylden Shaeffer, Attorney at Law, P.C. in San Antonio stands ready to defend your good name. After 30 years as a prosecutor and defense attorney, I understand the complexity of these charges, what the prosecutor must prove in court, and how to mount a successful defense. When you hire me to represent you, you get my deep commitment to work tirelessly to secure positive results.

What is embezzlement?

The crime of embezzlement occurs when a person in a position of trust and responsibility, usually in a business setting, commits a theft of assets (money or property). Embezzlement is classified as a traditional white collar crime because it is a financial crime that requires a level of professional attainment, knowledge and skill to accomplish. Embezzlement may range from a minor offense to a serious offense involving large sums of money and a well-thought-out scheme.

Targets of embezzlement investigations often include:

  • Accountants
  • Bankers
  • Corporate executives
  • Trust fund administrators
  • Estate administrators
  • Stockbrokers

However, embezzlement can occur at lower rungs on the corporate ladder. For example, a purchasing officer can alter records to skim profits from a company. No matter what your position, I am ready to provide you with a strong defense to the charges you face.

Skilled defense attorney takes prompt action to defend against embezzlement charges

Many people have the misconception that while violent crimes draw stiff penalties, financial crimes only get a slap on the wrist. This couldn’t be further from the truth. If you are charged with embezzling a large sum of money, you face felony charges that can send you to state prison for a very long time. In addition, you can be ordered to pay restitution to replace the funds you stole.

However, embezzlement is not always easy to prove beyond a reasonable doubt. If you retain a skilled criminal defense attorney early on, you can increase your chances of a favorable outcome. When I’m able to represent a client as soon as they know they’re being investigated, I can often avoid the filing of charges. Unfortunately, people suspected of embezzlement may be afraid that hiring an attorney will make them appear guilty. But if you fail to assert your rights, you could wind up being drawn into a weak, circumstantial case that can easily result in conviction.
