Embezzlement Providing Innovative Solutions & Obtaining Optimal Results

Experienced White-Collar Crime Lawyers in New Jersey

Any type of white-collar crime—including embezzlement—can involve highly technical areas of law. Handling such a case can require familiarity with accounting and corporate practices. Few white-collar crime lawyers in New Jersey have the expertise and legal acumen we offer. At Arseneault & Fassett, LLC, our New Jersey white-collar crime lawyers dedicate a large portion of their practice to defending clients in complex white-collar cases.

Each criminal defense lawyer at Arseneault & Fassett, LLC understands the special problems corporate officers and directors face when accused of embezzlement or other white-collar crime. The damage to reputation and career can be devastating, even if you are ultimately exonerated. While a typical white-collar criminal attorney in New Jersey may defend you in court, we recognize other issues are also at stake. Our lawyers take a proactive approach to preventing damage to the reputations of our clients in the court of public opinion.

Federal Embezzlement Laws

In addition to state penalties, officers or employees of Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) insured banks who embezzle or steal funds from their employer face severe penalties under federal law. Embezzlement of more than $1,000 from a federally insured bank or financial institution carries a prison term of up to 30 years as well as fines as high as $1 million.
