For an aggressive defense against forgery and related charges, count on Michael L. Fell.

You don’t have to be some kind of artistic genius to commit a forgery. Charges may apply even if you did a really bad job of faking a signature, copying someone’s handwriting, or falsifying a legal document such as a check, will, or deed.


Because the key to a forgery case is intent. So long as officials believe they can prove that you created the forgery with the specific intent to defraud someone, they can charge you.

Lack of Intent Makes a Strong Forgery Defense

If you have been accused of forgery, the question of intent may be pivotal in your case. For example, perhaps you signed your spouse’s name on a credit card slip or your bosses’ name on a contract, but you reasonably believed you had their permission to do so. If you did not intend to defraud anyone, there is no crime. Of course, you may need the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney like Michael L. Fell to prove this.

Get Help for Related Charges Too

Forgery charges often go hand in hand with various types of fraud charges, such as:

  • Credit card fraud

  • Bad checks
  • Prescription fraud

Fortunately, when you hire Michael L. Fell as your defense attorney, you can rely on him to provide a comprehensive defense to all the charges you may face.
