You should (a) look at attorney profiles, and reviews in Avvo. It will give a good indication as to what attorneys to interview. Also, check out the attorneys websites and see if you can view their recent cases and outcomes. This should give you a good idea as to what the attorney does.

I do not know the full details of the case and therefore cannot make a full determination on your case or your answer. I always recommend speaking to an attorney in detail regarding your case.
Our firm has a former Federal Prosecutor who has both prosecuted embezzlement and defended against these charges. Here are some articles about him:
You may want to focus on finding an attorney who has handles white collar crime cases. Many of us on Avvo offer free consultations.
Look for someone with credentials and someone you speak with and trust that they will fight for you. As a Former Deputy D.A, and a Certified Criminal Law Specialist, we have handled 100's of employee theft cases over the past 20 years. That being said, every case is different and no attorney can give you any guarantees as to a future outcome. If you want to speak with me personally, call my office at 661-267-1313.

Sounds like you need a "white collar" criminal attorney. That is for non-violent crimes such as embezzlement, fraud, licensing issues, workers compensation fraud, insurance fraud, etc. They are often treated as very serious crimes with major potential penalties including jail time and major fines, even though related to non-violent crimes. See www.chakmakislaw.com for more information.
I agree with what my colleagues are saying. One thing to consider is if the case does not settle is whether you feel that your attorney can effectively represent you in front of a jury which can be a different skill set from trying to get you an acceptable offer. You can contact me through my website:
Well as I am sure you can see, you have come to the right place. We ALL handle theft related cases and that's all embezzlement case. Just a different form of theft. Grand theft is almost always a state and not a federal case and we all work in both courts. Nothing terribly different between Embezzlement, Grand Theft and other forms of Larceny and Theft.
