Hodges Trial Lawyers filed suit recently against a bookkeeper gone rogue. This is not the first time we have been retained and discovered that a bookkeeper has helped him or herself to the hard earned profits of a small business. Generally, this occurs in environments where the bookkeeper has full check signing authority and/or there are no checks and balances. The temptation is to run your business and let someone else worry about the finances. This is generally a bad idea. We will seek justice and full recovery of all of our client’s damages. It is hard enough to be profitable in this economy without someone stealing from you.
