New Jersey Forgery & Fraud Defense
Fraud is the use of intentional deception on a document or application to achieve some specific outcome, such as receiving benefits. Forgery is the illegal copying or altering of documents or parts of documents. Both crimes can result in fines, probation, restitution and, sometimes, lengthy prison sentences.
In addition to criminal consequences, fraud and forgery can have damaging personal effects on your career and reputation. These effects may last long into the future, even if you are acquitted.
