These Are Our Clients

My employer’s business bank account was the subject of theft by check. Unauthorized checks for large amounts of money were being presented to the bank for payment. My employer stopped payment on all outstanding checks and closed the account. Three of the checks on which payment was stopped were my paychecks and a mileage reimbursement; they cut new checks to me.

The individual who committed this check fraud is the kind of person we represent, as a law firm primarily practicing criminal defense. Is there a bit of irony here? In fact, there is a “repeat client” who is essentially a professional hot-check writer. That is why he is currently residing in the Montgomery Count Jail.
