COUNERFEITING AND FORGERY

Counterfeiting is the crime of making an unauthorized imitation of a genuine article, typically money, with the intent to deceive or defraud. criminal-defense-lawyers.com specializes in referring criminal defense lawyers with experience handling counterfeiting and forgery related cases. Find a Criminal Lawyer now.

Because of the value conferred on money and the high level of technical skill required to imitate it, counterfeiting is singled out from other acts of forgery. It is generally punished as a felony. The international police organization Interpol was established primarily to organize the fight against counterfeiting. Software, credit cards, designer clothing, and watches are among non-money items commonly counterfeited.

Forgery is the making of a false writing with the intent to defraud. "Writing" need not be handwriting: the law of forgery also covers printing, engraving, and keyboarding.

Counterfeiting is usually regarded as a specific type of forgery. Checks, negotiable instruments, contracts, wills, and deeds are examples of documents that may be forged. Evidence may also be forged. Forgery requires fraudulent intent; it is not forgery to sign another's name, fill in blanks, or alter a genuine writing in the honest, though mistaken, belief that such conduct is authorized.

If you or someone you know is being accused of counterfeiting or forgery, you or that person may be potentially facing:

  1. Incarceration
  2. Probation
  3. Parole
  4. Fines and/or restitution
  5. Other sentences
The outcome of your case will depend not only on the legal ability of your attorney but also on external factors such us your criminal record (prior convictions), current criminal status (parole or probation), and the jury feelings and thoughts towards these types of crimes among many others.

On the other hand, important factors such as insufficient evidence or claiming insanity might be part of an effective criminal defense strategy.

Since the outcome of counterfeiting or forgery cases could be life changing, choosing an attorney requires you to be well informed and advised. To help you make the right decision, our service can provide you with important background information that includes attorney's ratings, records, and certifications.

We can refer you to a pre-screened criminal defense attorney with experience in counterfeiting and forgery related cases. If you already have a criminal lawyer in mind click here for a complimentary criminal attorney background check.
