NEW JERSEY EMBEZZLEMENT LAWYERS
How Our New Jersey Embezzlement Attorneys Can Help
Under the New Jersey Code of Criminal Justice, embezzlement is called theft by failure to make required disposition of property received. New Jersey law treats this crime as a type of theft offense. Embezzlement occurs when a person entrusted with property takes that property for personal use. While anyone entrusted with property can commit embezzlement, it is more common among white-collar employees because of the large amounts of property and greater discretion with which they are entrusted. Embezzlement carries the same penalties as other theft offenses, which usually depend on the value of the property involved:
- $75,000 or more: 5 to 10 years in prison
- $500 to $74,999: 3 to 5 years in prison
- $200 to $499: Up to 18 months in prison
- Less than $200: Disorderly persons offense
A person convicted of embezzlement may also face fines and may be required to make restitution for the property wrongfully obtained.

"Aside from my wife, Jack may very well be the only person in my life that I truly trust"Jack Arseneault might very well be one of the best attorneys in the USA, however, he is by far a much better person than he is an attorney. He has been my attorney for over 25 years and not only has his counseling been amazing, but his care for the well-being of myself and my family has gone and continues to go above what anyone would expect from their attorney. Jack ALWAYS put my needs and my family's needs before his own and advised based on what was best for us as opposed to what would make him the most money. Aside from my wife, Jack may very well be the only person in my life that I truly trust and I am honored and privileged to not only call him my attorney, but more importantly one of my best friends.- Sam
"Big heart and empathetic spirit"
Jack Arseneault was a beacon of hope to my family and I at a time when my options appeared limited back in 2011. I pretty much would of been behind bars without a doubt if it wasn’t for him. Not only was he able to defend and clear me of all charges, he made sure my record was cleared. His big heart and empathetic spirit offered us emotional support as well. He went over and beyond for us, he did things he didn’t have to do. He would always make time for me and till this day, he’s just a phone call away. I thank God for bringing him into our lives and I am ETERNALLY grateful for his service. I would recommend him without any hesitation.- Dominique

"Jack is not only a great lawyer, but a great man"I hired Jack to defend me in a criminal case brought against me by the Federal Government. Jack worked tirelessly for me for over four years which resulted in a positive outcome that I believe would not have been achieved by any other lawyer.
Jack is not only a great lawyer, but a great man. At no point during the extremely stressful process did I feel that Jack did not genuinely care about me. I don’t think that I can adequately write a review that expresses the amount of gratitude that I feel for the work that Jack Arseneault did on my behalf.- Frank

"No words to express his level of commitment and professionalism"My name is Vanyo Petrov Minkov and you can google me in order to check that this post is not fake. Jack Arseneault literally saved my life. I was facing from 120 months up to life and the only reason I got back home after 40 months was his.

Every second on the court, he fought like for his own kid. I strongly recommend the services of this amazing character. In my humble opinion He is the best lawyer you can get ...- Vanyo Minkov
