Kane County Forgery Defense Lawyer

Elgin, IL forgery defense attorney

Deceptive Practices Defense Attorney in Elgin and Aurora

Forgery and deceptive practice are serious offenses that carry severe penalties if you are convicted. In addition to the fines, potential jail time and restitution that may be ordered, the most serious penalties may be the damage that is done to your reputation and your future. In cases like these, it is critical that you have a strong advocate who will fight to protect your interests.

I am Elgin, Illinois forgery defense lawyer Brian J. Mirandola. During my seven years as an Assistant State's Attorney serving as a Kane County prosecutor, I saw good people's futures destroyed because of a conviction on forgery or deceptive practice charges. I also saw too many cases where their futures could have been preserved if a different criminal defense strategy were used. I closely examine each case from every angle and determine the course of action that gives you the best chance of avoiding a conviction.

Illinois Forgery Defense

Forgery and deceptive practice cases are extremely complex. I conduct a thorough review of the evidence in each case, looking for flaws that can be used to your advantage. If any of the evidence was obtained illegally, I will seek to have it suppressed. If your rights were violated at any time during the process, I will work to have the charges against you dismissed. If a dismissal is out of reach, I will pursue every available option in an effort to reach a positive outcome.

I have experience handling a broad range of forgery and deceptive practice cases, including the following:

  • Signing another person's name to a credit card application;
  • Forging mortgage documents;
  • Passing a forged check;
  • Writing checks on a closed account; and
  • Any act of theft by deception.
