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.
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:
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.
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.
An embezzlement charge can damage your reputation, hamper your business career and expose you to great personal jeopardy. To pursue the best possible outcome, retain a proven defense lawyer as soon as possible.

"When you have been wrongfully accused of having an affair with a student, you must acquire legal counsel before you even speak to the police, even if you are the person who reports the rumors. Tylden Schaeffer advised me to not have a second interview with the police department and found time in his schedule to meet with me that day. After the meeting, I had a path to move forward on and that included a well written statement that Mr. Schaeffer crafted. After submitting this in lieu of a second interview with the police, there were no more problems with the school district or police department. Mr. Schaeffer did a superb job and had me resting more easily following our meetings. I would highly recommend Mr. Schaeffer to anyone in need of a Criminal Defense Attorney." - Anonymous

"Tylden got my felony reduced to a misdemeanor. He saved my life. I didn’t have to pester him for information and updates about my case and his staff is well informed and helpful.

He is a highly intelligent and competent attorney. The Best!" - Anonymous
"I was represented by Mr. Shaeffer years ago (2004). He would travel from San Antonio all the way to Del Rio to represent me. My father and I were accused of wrong doing by federal agents and we had done nothing. We, my father and I were on trial simultaneously. We had hired an attorney and found out later he was friends with the prosecutor and wanted us to accept a plea bargain. “We did nothing wrong”, I cried to him. He insisted that we accept due to it being impossible to beat the Government. My father and I were close to giving up when we met Mr. Shaeffer. Mr. Shaeffer believed in us and fought for us. Because of him, I never saw prison walls nor was I ever away from my family. It was one of the most difficult times in my life, but thankfully we met a Godsend attorney and justice prevailed." - Anonymous
