Bergen County Defense Lawyer Handling Identity Theft Allegations

Identity theft and credit card theft allegations can result in a wide range of criminal charges, from forgery to theft. These crimes are harshly prosecuted and can include a lengthy prison sentence and sizeable fines, plus a permanent stain on your criminal record and reputation. Because the stakes are so high, it is important to seek counsel from a skilled defense lawyer as soon as you have been charged with one of these crimes.

My name is Susan C. Cassell, Esq., and I have more than 20 years of experience as an attorney in criminal law. As a former municipal and federal prosecutor, I have the knowledge needed to create an effective defense for clients in Bergen County and throughout northern New Jersey who have been charged with these white collar crimes.

Defending Against Identity Theft And Fraudulent Documentation Charges

Identity theft and credit card theft can occur in many ways, including using another person's name to open a credit card, using another person's checks or stealing a driver's license or Social Security number for fraudulent reasons. Charges may also result from fraudulent documentation such as possessing fraudulent driver's licenses and immigration papers, or filing false credit card applications. Depending on the severity of the crime and whether the offense crossed state lines, you may be facing federal charges.

My experience as a federal and municipal prosecutor gives me unique insights into how these cases are handled by the prosecution. As a result, I am able to prepare effective strategies to reduce or minimize these charges. I understand the shame and embarrassment that you may be feeling, and I will provide you with the counsel and support you need.
