Charged with Theft or Embezzlement? We Can Defend You.

Are you being investigated for misappropriating, or embezzling, funds at your Oregon business?

Have you been arrested for some form of theft — burglary, counterfeiting, fraud or shoplifting?

We have the investigative skills, aggressive advocacy and client commitment that can put this crisis behind you. We are the Short Law Group in Portland and Salem — experienced criminal defense lawyers who are dedicated to protecting your rights.

Theft typically implies the illegal taking of money, a car, someone's identity or property. Embezzlement is a term used in a business context, generally — a misuse of funds to benefit an individual, and actions to disguise the deception. Either offense carries harsh punishments upon conviction: incarceration, fines, restitution and a criminal record that future employers and mortgage lenders will frown upon.

Don't delay selecting the right attorney while prosecutors build a case against you. Timing is essential for the protection of your rights. Call the Short Law Group to speak with us, free of charge. 503-747-7198.
