Forgery & Fraud

ForgeryBeing accused of forgery or fraud can impact you for the rest of your life. Aside from the immediate consequences, such as jail, fines, probation, and restitution, a crime of dishonesty conviction will impact your ability to obtain a job and even a place to live!

Fraud is essentially when a person makes false statements to obtain an asset illegally, such as credit, state benefits, or even a State ID. Forgery, instead, is making false statements in writing to obtain an asset illegally.

Laws related to fraud can be very complex, and the consequences can very. Normally, fraud laws are broken down into specific areas of focus, such as insurance fraud, welfare fraud, identity fraud, and consumer fraud, to name just a few.

The police and prosecutors will be busy preparing their case against you, so it is vital that you have someone on your side who will work just as diligently. The laws in these areas can be complex and the paper trail can be confusing, so it is important to have an attorney who can understand and explain your position clearly to the state, the court, and if necessary, the jury.
