Getting Professional Help with the Los Angeles Forgery Lawyers

When most people think of forgery, they automatically assume the case involves one person faking the signature of another. The legal definition of forgery is much more complicated, but usually involves the falsifying or creating of a new document for benefit or gain. Whether accused of signing someone’s name, faking a seal, changing a legal document, or altering a check, you’ll need legal help to prove your innocence.

These are a few of the ways that the Los Angeles forgery lawyers can properly defend this charge and get the case dismissed;

Establishing Lack of Intent
Your Los Angeles forgery lawyer will work hard to show the court that you didn’t have intent to defraud anyone, so therefore you could not have committed forgery in the eyes of the California legal system. It could simply be a matter of you thinking that you had the authority to sign someone’s name or alter the document. It might be as simple as signing a spouse’s name on a check but the money was eventually spent on a family vacation. It could be you signed a document with the name of your boss without their authorization with no intent to defraud.

In the majority of these type cases, your Los Angeles forgery lawyer is going to assert there was lack of intent to fraud, therefore this case must be dismissed.

Forged Document Wasn’t Fraudulent
To be found guilty of forgery in California, the defendant must have the capacity to be able to deprive another of their legal right to property or money. If the falsifying or altering of a document didn’t have any legal significance, the case will not hold water. For example, faking a letter to endorse a politician, writing a fake letter of solicitation, or imitating the handwriting of another as a joke, will not be classified as forged documents.

The reason there is no forgery in these specific cases is because the intent in the above examples did not defraud anyone of monetary, property, or legal rights.

Making False Accusations
There are many forgery cases that simply arise out of very complex legal or business dealings. Those forgery cases that occur in a workplace setting often involve one person falsely accusing another of forgery, in an attempt to avoid getting in trouble for something or in an attempt to cover up their own mistakes. These tend to be very complicated cases and require the skill set of an experienced Los Angeles forgery lawyer to get a favorable result. Your attorney will need to sort out the details and then tell a clear story to the court about the actual turn of events.

Trying to explain your side of the story when you have others in the workplace arguing your guilt can be a challenge without legal representation. Your forgery lawyer will draw upon years of experience to cast your story in the best possible light.

Just had my Divorce case settled 2 months ago after having a horrible experience with another firm. I couldn’t be happier with Claire Banks and Elizabeth Garvey with their outstanding professionalism in doing so with Spodek Law Group. Any time I needed questions answered they were always prompt in doing so with all my uncertainties after 30 yrs of marriage.I feel from the bottom of my heart you will NOT be disappointed with either one. Thanks a million.

Alex Zhik contacted me almost immediately when I reached out to Spodek for a consultation and was able to effectively communicate the path forward/consequences of my legal issue. I immediately agreed to hire Alex for his services and did not regret my choice. He was able to cover my case in court (with 1 day notice) and not only was he able to push my case down, he carefully negotiated a dismissal of the charge altogether. I highly recommend Spodek, and more specifically, Alex Zhik for all of your legal issues. Thanks guys!

I don’t know where to start, I can write a novel about this firm, but one thing I will say is that having my best interest was their main priority since the beginning of my case which was back in Winter 2019. Miss Claire Banks, one of the best Attorneys in the firm represented me very well and was very professional, respectful, and truthful. Not once did she leave me in the dark, in fact she presented all options and routes that could possibly be considered for my case and she reinsured me that no matter what I decided to do, her and the team will have my back and that’s exactly what happened. Not only will I be liberated from this case, also, I will enjoy my freedom and continue to be a mother to my first born son and will have no restrictions with accomplishing my goals in life. Now that’s what I call victory!! I thank the Lord, My mother, Claire, and the Spodek team for standing by me and fighting with me. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to have the opportunity to work with this team. I’m very satisfied, very pleased with their performance, their hard work, and their diligence. Thank you team!

I can't recommend Alex Zhik and Spodek Law Firm highly enough for their exceptional legal representation and personal mentorship. From the moment I engaged their services in October 2022, Alex took the time to understand my case thoroughly and provided guidance every step of the way. Alex's dedication to my case went above and beyond my expectations. His expertise, attention to detail, and commitment to achieving the best possible outcome were evident throughout the entire process. He took the time to mentor me, ensuring I understood the legal complexities involved to make informed decisions. Alex is the kind of guy you would want to have a beer with and has made a meaningful impact on me. I also want to acknowledge Todd Spodek, the leader of the firm, who played a crucial role in my case. His leadership and support bolstered the efforts of Alex, and his involvement highlighted the firm's commitment to excellence. Thanks to Alex Zhik and Todd Spodek, I achieved the outcome I desired, and I am incredibly grateful for their professionalism, expertise, and genuine care. If you're in need of legal representation, look no further than this outstanding team.

Discrediting the Handwriting Expert
One of the ways that the prosecution will try to solidify their claim that you are guilty of forgery is to bring in handwriting experts to show that you were the one signing the document. If the prosecution is claiming that the defendant hand wrote or signed a document, the handwriting expert can be brought in to compare samples. When the expert testifies that you did in fact forge the documents, it is a challenge for anyone without a legal expert in their corner to get a favorable outcome.

Although the expert may have evidence that shows the signatures are similar, your Los Angeles forgery lawyer is allowed to bring in a handwriting expert of their own to dispute those claims. Your attorney may hire an expert who can produce several different samples of your writing to show that the conclusions of the defense are unfounded, and that the case must be dismissed.

The Los Angeles forgery lawyers have seen all sorts of these type cases, and have successfully defended their clients so the charge doesn’t negatively impact their permanent record. Don’t try to take these matters in your own hands, always speak with an attorney because the consequences in these cases can be severe.
