Oftentimes, we are far too quick to condemn someone accused of something like embezzlement. It is not a pretty word, to be sure, and it is easy to stereotype people under the umbrella of corruption and greed. However, there is no such thing as a “simple case of embezzlement.” In almost all of these cases, the story runs much deeper. Good people sometimes do foolish things, especially when the bills are piling up and there is not enough money to go around.
If you are faced with embezzlement charges or a similar “white collar” crime, you should retain the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney. James Bendell has three decades of trial experience, including work as a prosecutor, judge pro tem and Court Commissioner. He will aggressively represent your interests both in and out of the courtroom. If you have been falsely accused, or if the prosecution’s case is weak, he will zealously represent you at trial, after first trying to persuade the prosecutor to dismiss the case after a thorough investigation.
If you have made mistakes in judgment, James Bendell is here to help minimize the penalties you face. You may have meant to simply borrow the money, but lost control of the situation instead.
In certain situations, if you have a family member or other person who can help you financially, and you can make restitution to the other party prior to sentencing, James might be able to keep your sentence to just probation, or even prevent charges from being filed altogether. You can be assured that he will carefully examine and evaluate all aspects of your case in order to present you with the best options available under the law.
