Embezzlement/Fraud/Obtaining Property by False Pretenses

In today’s uncertain financial times, embezzlement and other crimes deemed “White Collar” have come under a scope of increasing scrutiny from law enforcement officials. Law enforcement officials are now spending significantly more money and time prosecuting white collar allegations. These crimes are quite serious in nature and often quite complex.

In some cases, our office will need to work with forensic accountants and other experts to follow the “paper trail” to determine the strengths and weaknesses of the State’s case.  Often times this requires the lengthy and tedious process of going through financial records and receipts page by page and line by line though thousands of pages of documents in order to prepare for trial.  Our office has the time, resources and experience to handle this where others don’t.  In these types of cases, experience matters.  Nathan has tried hundreds of cases and represented thousands of individuals facing all types of charges, ranging from Capital Murder to minor traffic violations.  His calming demeanor and his unique ability to explain the law in easy-to-understand language sets him apart from other attorneys.  Nathan is well known as a trial attorney that uses his courtroom reputation and trial skills to successfully defend his clients, or reach the best deal possible.
