Fraud And Forgery

Facing Forgery Or Fraud Charges?

If you have been accused of possessing forged documents, credit card theft, check fraud or unauthorized use of someone's identity or financial accounts, you may be facing serious charges of fraud, forgery or identity theft.

Maybe it is all a misunderstanding or stems from a dispute with someone you know that resulted in accusations. You may not had any intent to commit fraud. No matter how it happened, you need to speak with an attorney, as the consequences from these charges could be significant.

Fraud Is A Serious Charge

Fraud can be charged as a felony in Georgia. In some cases, you could be facing up to 10 years in prison for fraud or use of forged documents. The greater the harm, the more significant the penalties.

Our firm can handle a wide variety of cases involving fraud, forgery and misappropriation:

  • Stolen or forged checks

  • Selling personal data (credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, etc.)
  • Embezzlement

Don't Try To Talk Your Way Out Of The Charges
