Assume that I have lost $1,000 due to embezzlement.
What are the pros and cons and practicalities of trying to press charges of embezzlement vs going to small claims court to get the money back?
For example: 1. With which approach am I more likely to get my money back? 2. Would an Attorney General or District Attorney have to file for embezzlement, which may and may not happen, whereas I can file in small claims court myself. 3. Will an AG or DA make a better legal case than I could, and so be more likely to win?
I am in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
