Using The Law To Defend You Against Identity Theft And Forgery Charges
You may believe penalties connected to identity theft and forgery crimes are not severe; however, it is still vital to aggressively confront charges. Hoping your legal issue will resolve itself is a costly strategy for these white collar crimes. Even if the charges for these financial crimes are dropped, it is likely your professional reputation will be tainted.
How you choose to respond to these charges can affect your ability to retain your business and assets. Hiring an experienced attorney to fight allegations at the first opportunity can minimize this impact and support your claims of innocence.
When Memphis residents are struggling with complex criminal matters, they hire me, Vicki M. Carriker. I have been defending clients in Tennessee’s state, federal and appellate courts for over 18 years. I use my extensive legal background to identify the most efficient and effective defensive strategy to pursue. Prosecutors are unrelenting in their pursuit of justice; you should expect nothing less from your lawyer.
Committed To Defending Your Reputation
Over the course of my career, I have represented clients for a range of financial offenses such as:
- Identity theft
- Credit card fraud
- Prescription fraud
- Check fraud
- Insurance fraud
In Tennessee, an identity theft conviction is classified as a felony with prison time and fines attached. A fraud conviction can be designated as a misdemeanor or felony. Having either conviction on your criminal record can disqualify you from holding certain jobs and can invalidate a professional certification.
