Theft By Fraud And Embezzlement Charges

An “embezzlement” charge is based on allegations of taking another person’s money while it was entrusted in your care. Examples of this include an accountant or bookkeeper who is entrusted with funds owned by a company but steals funds for him or herself. Sometimes this is done through an illegal transfer of money. Other allegations can include falsifying records, statements, creating false bills or vendor accounts.

In some cases, if you pay restitution for the embezzlement or theft charge, you may be able to avoid jail or have the charge reduced to a misdemeanor.

Easy to work with – and hard to work against. A veteran of many high profile federal and state cases, clients are often surprised by how approachable they find Damon. But having seen him at trial dozens of times over the years, I can attest to his powerful motions practice, ability to conduct relentless cross-examinations, and give moving openings/closings. With personal and professional qualities that make him easy to work with – and hard to work against – anyone in need of a criminal defense attorney would be in great hands with Damon Cheronis.

Andy B. Chicago, IL

A lawyer who truly cares and listens to his clients. Damon, is a lawyer who truly cares and listens to his clients. He was totally prepared for the case so he was never surprised by the prosecutions evidence or arguments. He and was able to put the prosecutors in a defensive mode. He was by far the best attorney in the court room. I would highly recommend him to everyone.

John D. Chicago, IL

More than just and attorney! Very professional, always pays attention to detail and hungry to fight for his clients. The price I paid does come close to how hard he works. More than just and attorney! I definitely would recommend Damon to anyone I knew who needed a good attorney.
