Forgery Cases

Forgery cases are serious allegations.

It is absolutely critical that you retain the services of an aggressive, highly experienced Forgery Lawyer with a proven track record as soon as you possibly can. Forgery cases can not only land you in jail, they have a far greater potential to harm you. These cases uniquely attack your most important asset, your reputation. If you lose your good reputation then people will not trust you. This may impact your relationships and even your ability to earn a living.

Our Forgery Lawyers work as part of a Forgery Defense Team that consists of experienced attorneys, forensic experts and private investigators with law enforcement experience. We will carefully scrutinize all of the allegations against you and we will present evidence of your innocence to to prosecutor in an effort to avoid charges if they have not already been filed, or to get filed charges reduced or dismissed. Mayo Bartlett is a former prosecutor who prosecuted Forgery cases while working in the Investigations Bureau of the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office. 

Forgery and Criminal Possession of Forged Instrument cases often result from actions as simple as underage students obtaining and presenting fake ID cards to help them enter a bar.

Forgery and forgery related cases may also impact your ability to remain in the United States if you are not a citizen. These are crimes that reflect upon your character and truthfulness and may be considered crimes of moral turpitude. These are not allegations to be taken lightly as they may present devastating consequences not only to you, but also to your innocent family members. Our Forgery Defense Lawyers will spend time speaking to you about how your case case may impact you. While we cannot know every possible consequence, we will do our best to help you make an informed decision about how to proceed in order to achieve your objectives with the least possible harm.
