White Collar Crime: Fraud, Theft, Embezzlement
White collar crime refers to nonviolent crimes that result in financial gain. Do not discuss your case with police or investigators before talking to a defense attorney. Defense attorney Chris Connelly has represented clients in financial crimes that include bank employees charged with embezzlement and retail employees charged with theft. He analyzes each case carefully, crafting a defense strategy based on the unique aspects of the situation, including cases involving:
- Mortgage fraud
- Employee theft
- Embezzlement or misappropriation of client funds
- Credit card fraud
- Unlawful concealment of merchandise
We will work to establish any number of defenses, including cases involving simple accounting errors, clouded judgment resulting from a psychological problem and shoplifting cases involving children unwittingly shoving items into a parent's shopping bag. We can also help mitigate harsh consequences through plea bargaining, including agreements to make restitution or provide community service, if that is the best route to take.
Theft: Burglary, Robbery, Stealing
Do not discuss your case with police or investigators before talking to a defense attorney. Theft charges include a variety of types of larceny, depending on the circumstances. A skillful criminal defense lawyer may be able to get a charge of armed robbery (robbery with a dangerous weapon) reduced to common-law robbery, or dropped altogether. Let your lawyer speak on your behalf, and avoid making mistakes that could permanently damage your case.
