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.

    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.
