Attorneys assisting small businesses in Dallas who have had property or money stolen
If a business partner or employee has stolen from your company you may need to contact law enforcement. Frequently, however, “white collar” crimes are not prosecuted because law enforcement is not familiar with financial crimes or simply lacks the time or manpower to investigate. Further, the criminal prosecution process can move slowly and there is a real risk that you may not recover what was taken if you wait for that system to run its course. Hiring an attorney to file suit in state or federal court, is necessary to not only receive a judgment against the wrongdoer but to also recover what was lost. Frequently, the civil process is your only recourse. If criminal prosecution is appropriate, the odds of success are much higher when you have legal counsel to help you present your case to law enforcement. After you learn of potential theft or embezzlement, your next step should be to contact a law firm.
