What is Forgery?

Many things are considered forgery, including counterfeiting, forgery of real estate transactions or wills, altering contracts, falsifying documents, fraudulent bank statements and even writing a bad check.

Forgery is a criminal offense that can ruin your life forever, so it is imperative that you consult with a capable criminal defense attorney when you are facing these charges.

You may have done something as simple as writing a bad check that you were not aware was bad when you wrote it, or you may have done something much more serious.
