Columbus Forgery Attorney

Forgery Charges

A white collar crime is defined as a crime where no violence was involved and the evidence is obtained through paperwork or documents that were illegally created or signed. Forgery, such as signing another's name on a check will be charged as a felony. It can be charged as a 3rd, 4th or 5th degree felony in Ohio, depending upon the amount of money or property involved. If you or a loved one has been charged with forgery, you should immediately speak to an experienced Columbus white collar crime lawyer at The Koffel Law Firm.

No matter what the circumstances were, if it is discovered you have forged another's signature on a legal document or check, you will be prosecuted. If you are accused of forging documents, the repercussions can last a lifetime. The lawyers at the firm have a long history of successfully defending their clients and over the past two decades have accumulated an impressive number of acquittals in serious criminal cases in both state and federal court. They work energetically towards resolving your case and defending your rights. You deserve to have your side of the story presented and a firm that stands with you to seek to favorably conclude your case.

False ID Cards

Using or making false ID cards, such as amongst students, is a misdemeanor. It falls under the crime of fraud and having this on your criminal record can make it difficult to get a job and may affect educational opportunities. Forging a check or signing another's name on any document or contract is a more serious offense. Forging of government documents such as Social Security numbers is a serious federal crime with heavy penalties.

When you call the firm's offices, your lawyer can review the details of your case to advise you on the best legal option available in your defense. As with any crime, it is important to seek legal representation as soon as possible. It can be a grave error to make any sort of statement to the police or other officials without first arranging to have a lawyer present to protect your rights. The earlier you can contact the firm's attorneys, the sooner they can begin the process of aggressively defending you and resolving the charges brought against you.

Contact a Columbus forgery attorney if you or a loved one has been arrested for forgery. Protect your rights by securing proven legal counsel to provide you with a strong and effective defense.
