Sacramento Lawyer Providing Business Investigative Consulting Services
I am criminal and civil litigation attorney Dick Margarita. I have assisted a diverse client base in Central and Northern California, providing effective and tenacious advocacy in and out of court.
When companies and organizations are victims of fraud, theft, embezzlement and other white collar crimes, there are often unforeseen effects that are not attended to. As a lawyer with an extensive investigative background in the FBI and DEA, I have the skill, experience and knowledge necessary to address these issues and provide advice to avoid unwelcome consequences.
Helping Business Determine the Full Extent of Losses
My business investigative consulting practice focuses on conducting thorough investigations for clients who experience loss due to theft (embezzlement) and fraud. I assist with determining the full extent of losses, identifying tax reporting requirements, assessing potential legal ramifications and advising on reporting requirements. I also work to proactively prevent losses through early detection of criminal activity.
I work with a variety of clients such as:
- Small businesses
- Tax exempt organizations
Protecting Your Company and Its Assets
In order to gather and report highly detailed information to my clients, I routinely work with other investigative consultants and professionals, including Certified Public Accountants and licensed private investigators. Together, we track and analyze clients’ assets and make recommendations based on our findings.
Often, our investigations detect situations in progress and we are able to effect criminal charges by presenting our findings to prosecutors. In many cases, I then guide my clients through the process of filing a civil lawsuit to recover their losses.
In any case I handle, my goal is to protect my clients and obtain optimal solutions to their legal problems.
