Fort Collins Forgery Defense Attorney
Signing someone else's name to a check or financial document to obtain funds is considered check fraud or check forgery. As a dedicated Colorado criminal defense lawyer, I understand that law enforcement personnel often overstep their boundaries in their pursuit of evidence. If I discover that your constitutional rights were violated, I will fight hard to have evidence suppressed and charges dismissed. I evaluate all cases for:
- Probable cause
- Proper search and seizure
- Legal search warrants
I conduct thorough, detailed investigations into my clients' cases. I consult with industry experts, whose testimony can help support your defense. I understand that mistakes can be made during police investigations, so I follow up with all allegations made by police and the District Attorney's Office.
Guidance for Restitution
One of the most important questions with any forgery, counterfeiting or financial crimes case can be the question of restitution. Specifically, who should pay and how much restitution might be properly ordered. Sometimes, prosecutors will try to have the court hold a defendant responsible for the criminal acts of another person when the law might not allow that.
I can evaluate your situation from every angle to determine the best course of action. With proper representation, I can ensure that restitution is severely limited.
I offer free initial consultations to all new clients. I invite you to call my law firm today at 970-237-5688 or toll free at 888-383-6179 to discuss your situation with a qualified Colorado defense lawyer.
