Asked on: 7/12/01, 12:11 am


I paid myself with monies(cash payments) collected from clients for the services of an immigration lawyer that I was consulted for since he did not pay me as agreed. However, I did not have a work contract specifying the terms, it was all done verbally. Am I guilty of embezelment and what is the law?

Re: Embezelment

If you knowingly misappropriated to yourself monies owed the lawyer who had entrusted you with the task of collecting these sums from clients,you

have committed the crime of embezzlement.
