Berkeley Client- Charges reduced for Embezzlement

In a Berkeley case in Alameda County, our client was arrested for a felony violation of Penal Code Section 503 – (Embezzlement). Skilled negotiations with the Alameda County District Attorney's Office and the presentation of a strong mitigation case led to them filing only a misdemeanor charge despite a loss of over $7,000.  Further negotiations led to a disposition of a deferred entry of judgment and all other charges were dismissed. Our client is now eligible for a full dismissal of the entire case in 18 months.
