Legal Question in Criminal Law in Virginia


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?
