Columbus Counterfeiting Defense Attorney

Have you been charged with counterfeiting?

Counterfeiting is a form of forgery in which an item is printed, manufactured or altered to look like another product, and then distributed or sold as that product with an intention to deceive others. Counterfeiting crimes include illegal reproductions of money, bonds, money orders, securities, deeds, documents, electronics, clothing and software. When products like watches and other goods are forged, the counterfeiting case can include trademark and patent infringement.

Counterfeiting is both a state and federal crime. At the state level, counterfeiting can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the circumstances of the case. Federal counterfeiting charges frequently involve crimes concerning currency and bonds and commonly carry extremely harsh penalties, which can include a life sentence in a federal prison.

If you are under investigation for counterfeiting or have been charged with this serious crime, contact a Columbus white collar crime defense lawyer from The Koffel Law Firm quickly to have your case reviewed. Counterfeiting cases normally require a creative and energetic defense to prevent a conviction. A key element of the crime, which the opposition must prove, is that an individual had the intent to defraud. An insightful lawyer, with proven federal crime experience, works tirelessly to evaluate evidence to find the weaknesses in the prosecution's case.
