White collar crime defense requires proactive approach

For many people who are charged with a work-related white collar crime, an arrest doesn't come as a complete surprise. If you've taken a risk by skimming funds from your employer or similar activity, chances are good that you're waiting for the other shoe to drop.

A closer look at money laundering and your bank transactions

At the beginning of the year, around the start of May, we presented readers of our blog with the case of a Georgia business owner who, in 2013, had $950,000 of his assets seized by the IRS because the government thought his small business transactions were an indication of criminal activity.

As many of our Atlanta readers know, criminal investigations can come in all shapes and sizes.

Theft can be of many types, not just entering someone's house and taking their possessions from them.

Embezzlement most usually occurs in employment settings.

Allegations of a criminal nature can affect not only the accused's reputation, but also their personal relationships and their current job.

This is especially true if the accusations become public as people often rush to judgment without all the facts.

A person may believe that his or her act is innocuous, but it could still be deemed as an embezzlement scheme and result in an arrest.
