New York Forgery Defense Lawyer
The crime of forgery occurs when someone creates a fake document, changes a document or signs someone else’s signature on a document without their consent. Credit card fraud and
identity theft often involve forgery, including forging many different types of documents. These documents may include contracts, birth certificates, identification cards, checks, marriage certificates, prescriptions and other legal certificates.
In many cases forgery may also involve fraud. Fraud is the crime of knowingly deceiving another, mainly for monetary gain. Both forgery and fraud are considered
theft crimes under New York law. A person may be charged with a misdemeanor or felony forgery offense depending on the circumstances that surround their forgery case. Law enforcement will attempt to build a strong case against anyone charged with forgery, especially relating to identity theft as it has become a severe problem in recent years.
