Have You Been Accused of Committing Forgery?
Forgery is an area of
white collar crimes is taken very seriously. Forgery occurs when a person alters or falsifies
a document in any way, including writing a false signature, with fraudulent
intent. This means that when a person mistakenly fills out a document
or with no intent of causing harm, he or she has not technically committed
forgery. When intent is involved in criminal offenses, particularly ones
involving fraud, theft and forgery, the prosecution has the difficult
task of proving the action and the intent of the defendant. With a skilled
forgery defense lawyer on your side, your chances of avoiding a conviction
and even avoiding formal charges being filed greatly increases.
