Forgery / Counterfeiting

The Road To Resolution Starts Here Aggressive Representation When You Need It The Most

Bartow Forgery & Counterfeiting Attorney

What is forgery & counterfeiting?

Forgery is the crime of producing, making, or adapting objects or documents with the intent to defraud another. When forgery leads to someone being deceived out of money, additional charges may be added. Counterfeiting is making or creating an unauthorized imitation of a genuine article with the intent to defraud.

An individual may be charged with forgery or counterfeiting when law enforcement discovers:

  • False, forged, or counterfeit bank bills or notes; or
  • Tools or instruments used by counterfeiters.

Although counterfeiting and forgery cases can be prosecuted on a state level, these crimes are often investigated by the FBI or Secret Service. With so many types of currency, coin, and documents, there are more than 100 different actions that may be considered a counterfeiting or forgery crime. In situations where the forgery or counterfeiting charge is of a currency or financial nature, the greater the monetary amount of the alleged crime, the more severe the criminal charge the accused will face.

  • I couldn't have asked for more!

    I just want to publicly show my gratitude to Ms. Salvia and the rest of the team that worked on my recent case. I really felt I was represented well by Ms. Salvia and she took the lead in making strong points for my case. She was able to properly vocalize what I needed and look out for things that I didn't even consider. She is very experienced. I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you so much for help and professionalism.

  • Martha and the rest of the team constantly kept me in the loop of all that was occurring

    There was never a time that I was alone in my divorce process. The staff/team was in contact communication with me. Any questions, concerns or issues I may have had, they were front and center ready to help me through the process and educate me on what the next steps were. Divorce in and of itself is a very emotional, trying and frustrating process. Martha and the rest of the team constantly kept me in the loop of all that was occurring, what was needed, any changes that were coming and how to properly handle them. Thank you so much for making a stressful and life changing event, easier to navigate.

Having gone through a protracted and tumultuous divorce lasting almost five years would leave any living and breathing human hating lawyers even their own. well, I must say I am left with a gratitude for all the hard work, patience and guidance given me throughout my process. I would recommend Melissa Wilson to anyone that is looking for Honesty, integrity and a fighter where it counts... CASE CLOSED!!!! and so is mine. cant forget Martha her assistant, taking my calls always and listening to me vent. Thank you all in that office Sincerely Niko
