The crime of forgery involves creating a fake document or signature with the intention of passing it off as genuine as part of a fraud. Possible examples include:
- Signing someone else’s name on a credit card slip when you do not have permission to do so
- Faking an official seal
- Falsifying a legal document like a will
- Faking or altering any document related to finances or property
Forgery can be a serious felony charge carrying significant jail time and other penalties. If you have been accused of forgery, it is in your best interests to retain a skilled and experienced forgery defense lawyer such as The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo & Associates right away.
We Will Fight for Your Defense
Our fifteen years of experience in criminal defense gives us the expertise that is needed to find weak areas in the prosecutor’s evidence. In a forgery case, the weakest part of the prosecution’s argument often centers around intent. The state must prove that you had the intent to use the forged item to defraud someone. If there is no intent, there is no crime. As your forgery defense attorney, we will carefully examine the evidence in order to determine whether the state can prove intent. If they do not have strong evidence, we will have leverage to have the charges against you dismissed, or at the very least fight for an advantageous plea deal.
We will do whatever it takes to defend your rights, whether that means taking your case to trial and cross-examining each witness or working to get you the best deal possible. Our experience with the local courts and prosecutors means that we can help you understand how the case is likely to be decided and what amount of sentencing relief you are likely to get with a plea deal.
