Forgery/Fraud

handcuffedUnfortunately, a forgery or fraud conviction in Everett, Washington, will follow you around for the rest of your life. Beyond possible jail, fines, probation, and restitution, a conviction for a crime of dishonesty will impact your ability to get a job and possibly even a place to live.

“Fraud” is when you use false statements to obtain an asset illegally, such as money, state benefits, and credit. There are numerous ways to perpetrate a fraud; hence, there are numerous different types of fraud charges an individual can face for their fraudulent actions. There are fraud laws governing issues ranging from welfare fraud, insurance fraud, and identity fraud to fraud involving liquor warehouse receipts, mock auctions, and sampling of metal/ore.

“Forgery,” on the other hand, is making false statements in writing to obtain an asset illegally. Forgery covers any paper, document, instrument containing written or printed matter, or any access device, token, stamp, seal, badge, trademark, or any other evidence or symbol of value, right, privilege, or identification.

Whether you are accused of fraud or forgery, it is extremely important to take the charge seriously.

    Mr. Newcombe is an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldnt be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.

    Jason has successfully contested and won 3 of my family's traffic tickets. His customer service is incredible and he even called me personally to tell me the outcome of the judge's decision. I would highly recommend Jason Newcombe to anyone in need of an attorney.

    Mr. Newcombe is a fantastic lawyer. When I first called his offices, I didn't know where to turn. I was facing a crazy criminal charge, and he ended up getting it completely dismissed. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. They will fight, not just roll over and try to get you to take a deal. I highly recommend him!

    From start to finish with the DUI process Jason Newcombe's office has been more than helpful, friendly, honest and respectful.From the beginning, Jason was on our side and fighting our battle with us. He flat out laid out our options honestly and gave us his opinion on which was the best way to go, but never made the decision for us. Jason is very professional yet personable. We are completely satisfied with our end result. Couldn't ask for a better lawyer to be on your side.

    I cannot thank Mr. Newcombe and his staff enough. They are awesome. When I first contacted his offices, I didn't know what to do. I was overwhelmed and confused. He did an amazing job, I highly recommend him! I had two cases, and he got both of them dismissed. If you are in trouble, do yourself a favor, give him a call.
