Experienced Defense in Cases of Fraud, Embezzlement and Theft

White collar crimes are crimes for financial gain. They may be committed by an individual, by employees of a business against their employer, or by a company itself.

I’m criminal defense attorney Marc A. Legget. I represent people facing charges for white collar crimes in the Los Angeles area, such as fraud and embezzlement. With more than two decades of criminal defense experience, you can trust me to fight for your rights.

Defense Against Any and All Fraud and White Collar Crime Charges

There are more than 400 legal characterizations of theft. I have handled thousands of theft and fraud cases and can defend you against these and other white collar crime charges:

  • Misuse of business funds, theft of government or corporate funds
  • Embezzlement
  • Identity theft
  • Fraud: Making a false or misleading representation that someone then relies upon to make an investment or purchase, or failing to tell someone something when you have a duty to be truthful (for example, in securities fraud cases)
  • Larceny

The Strongest Defense Given the Facts of Your Case

Criminal defense is not a one-size-fits-all venture. At every stage of your case there are actions I can take to improve your situation.

  • As an experienced defense lawyer I do the investigative work necessary to see if I can first get the charges against you dropped. Were the funds used for lawful not fraudulent purposes? Were proper representations made but ignored by the buyer? I gather evidence to support your case.
  • If evidence was illegally obtained, I seek to have that evidence excluded from court.
  • If it is in your best interest to go to trial, I work to get the charges reduced and then to fight the charges or to seek the minimum sentence.
