Los Angeles Forgery Defense Lawyer

Criminal Defense Lawyers Fighting Forgery Charges

Forgery is defined as creating or altering a written document to commit a fraud. This is done so you can present a document for your own benefit to defraud another of money, interest in property or legal rights. Essentially you are creating a counterfeit with the intent of injury or damage of some sort to another party. This is considered a white collar and a theft crime in California. Forgery is committed without authorization or the knowledge of the party being defrauded. Many people believe forgery is merely the signing of another's name, but it also includes the altering, corrupting, creating or publishing of a document intended to defraud.

Are you facing a forgery charge?

If you are being charged with forgery, it has to be proven that you knowingly created the forgery with the intention to commit fraud. A forgery conviction can lead to a misdemeanor or felony, large fines, community service, restitution to victims, and one to three years imprisonment. It is important to have a knowledgeable Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who can work to defend your case through either reducing the charges or having them dropped if at all possible.
