That’s what we’re here for, and the Premier Federal Criminal Defenders is ready to answer all your questions and concerns and to advocate strongly and expertly on your behalf.
Forgery charges can take many different forms and can range from misdemeanor charges to felony charges. Signing someone else’s name on a check, falsification of a business contract or other legal document, falsification of a medical prescription and more activities are examples of forgery.
In order to prepare to defend forgery charges you and your attorney will need to:
- Review every detail of your case in order to determine the appropriate and best course of action for your defense.
- Determine whether or not there was intent to commit fraud. The prosecutor will need to prove that there was the intent to commit fraud in order to secure a conviction.
- Determine whether or not the allegedly fraudulent document is valid or invalid. The prosecutor will need to prove that the allegedly fraudulent document is valid and could commit a fraud in order to secure a conviction.
