Embezzlement / Theft

Experienced Embezzlement Attorney in Birmingham, AL

Based in Birmingham, the law firm of Boles Holmes White has successfully represented executives, managers and employees accused of embezzlement and other large-scale thefts. Our accomplished lawyers have represented accused embezzlers on state and federal charges in Alabama, Georgia, Florida and throughout the United States.

If you have been questioned or arrested in connection with a major theft, contact our office immediately. As with other “white collar” crimes, employee theft is one area where early involvement of legal counsel can make a real difference.

In ideal situations, Boles Holmes White has negotiated resolutions without involving law enforcement. In other cases, we have been able to prevent a grand jury indictment or convince prosecutors to drop the charges. If the case should go forward, you are represented by prominent trial lawyers with the demonstrated skills to fight for your freedom.

Aggressive Representation in Embezzlement and Theft

Our theft and embezzlement defense attorneys have handled the full spectrum of felony theft charges:

  • Embezzlement from corporate accounts
  • Theft of client funds
  • Theft from a non-profit, church or charity
  • Misappropriation of company property
  • Abuse of corporate credit cards and expense accounts
  • Credit card thefts, auto thefts and other grand larceny

In a common scenario, missing funds are revealed by an audit or uncovered by a co-worker. The person is usually terminated and escorted from the premises, with no opportunity to explain the discrepancy or review the books.

Nationwide Embezzlement Defense Attorneys

The BHW team has decades of combined experience in criminal defense. They can accurately assess the strengths and weaknesses of the prosecution’s case and challenge the allegations:

  • Sometimes, there is no money actually missing, merely accounting errors.
  • We identify others who had access to the same accounts and opportunity for a set-up.
  • Sometimes the allegations are fabricated by an employer or co-worker to get rid of the person accused.

Where an embezzlement or theft did occur, the company or victim is often most interested in recovering the lost money. Boles Holmes White has negotiated settlements to make full or partial restitution in exchange for termination of employment and dropping of charges.

We explore all mitigating factors (addiction, financial woes) to limit any punishment, and we are prepared to go to trial when the government’s case has significant holes or a plea bargain would be career-ending.
