Sealing of Employee Theft & Embezzlement in Ohio
Our clients seeking expungement and sealing for Embezzlement or Employee Theft are typically good people, who were in difficult financial times and made a choice to embezzle money, which they now regret. Typically, these cases begin with a person taking money from their employer to cover some urgent personal expense, but they intended to pay it back later. Their conduct was discovered, and it resulted in charges ranging from Misdemeanor 1st Degree, or up to Felony 5th degree, Felony 4th Degree, or Felony 3rd degree. Because Embezzlement and Employee Theft are considered a breach of trust, a criminal record for these charges can cause severe impact to a person’s reputation and employment opportunities.

Our Clients Recommend Us – We Work Hard to Help Our Clients
I hired Greg to possibly seal a F5 felony. I had a previous conviction that courts sometimes say exclude me from being able to seal any records. Greg was honest with me and let me know that he could not guarantee success but that he was willing to work hard to help me. He was well prepared for the court hearing, and the court ruled to seal the record. 🙂 This was a very stressful and embarrassing process to go through, however, Greg was easy to work with and didn’t make me feel dumb for my past mistakes. It was and is clear to me that Greg cares about his clients. I highly recommend Greg.
