Kalamazoo White Collar Crime Lawyers
Many people equate the expression "white collar crime" with big money and corporate crime. But ordinary people find themselves facing white collar crime charges every day, especially now that use of the computers and the Internet is widespread. Sometimes, people think they can get away with things, especially when it doesn't feel like they are hurting anyone because they're not dealing with them face to face. Then, all of a sudden, the police are at their door. They seize the computer, bank accounts and the car, and these people are on their way to state or federal prison.
At Willis Law, we are dedicated to protecting the rights of individuals facing criminal charges in Michigan. If you need a skilled and hardworking criminal defense lawyer to stand by your side and fight for you, please contact us today for a free consultation. From our law offices in Kalamazoo, Paw Paw and Grand Rapids, we defend clients facing white collar crime and other serious criminal charges throughout West Michigan.
Embezzlement is taking money or property or using services for your own benefit after they have been entrusted to your care. It can range from taking money from a register to complex schemes of financial fraud.
Embezzlement charges go beyond your criminal case. Your professional reputation, even professional licensure and livelihood, could be at risk. You should have an attorney on your side who knows how to mount a successful defense against embezzlement charges guiding you throughout your case. Failure to do so could have drastic consequences on current and future employment opportunities and your ability to provide for yourself and your family.
Our lawyers understand that people often intend to repay the money they take. Desperate times often lead to people taking desperate measures. Many of our clients fall into this category — honest, hardworking people who have fallen into difficult times.

In a recent conversation with a former client of yours, she indicated to me that your firm provided her with very high-quality legal representation and with a great deal of kindness. The long and the short of it is that you should be aware that you have a client who is now a great fan and is singing your praises. Your representation of this very nice woman reflects what is best about our profession. Without your capable assistance, an injustice would have continued.
