Check Fraud And Forgery Defense Lawyer In Bergen County

If you have been charged with check fraud, falsifying documents, forgery or another related offense, your freedom and future are on the line.

An experienced Bergen County defense attorney can help protect your interests and minimize these damaging consequences.

My name is Susan C. Cassell, Esq., and I have more than 20 years of legal experience. As a former municipal and federal prosecutor, I have insight into how the prosecution builds a white collar crime case and will use this knowledge to put together a strong defense.

Do Not Wait To Seek Legal Advice

Prosecutors rarely charge people with white collar crimes without a thorough investigation and substantial evidence. If you are under suspicion for check fraud or forgery, it is to your advantage to hire an attorney right away. I can help protect your rights during the investigation stage and may even be able to prevent charges from being filed.

If you have already been charged, I will work to put you in the most favorable position possible. I will inform you of all of your defense options and help you determine the best strategy for your situation.

I have the knowledge to defend people against allegations of:

  • Forging signatures on checks and other government documents
  • Knowingly writing bad checks
  • Producing counterfeit checks
  • Altering the documents of another person without his or her knowledge
  • Completing documents on behalf of another person without his or her knowledge
