Check Fraud

Any person who willfully and with intent to commit fraud through a check, draft, or bank or depository order for the payment of money may face criminal charges of check fraud. To be charged, evidence from the prosecution must be shown that you were aware if and had intent to defraud. Any individual who obtains personal information of another and uses those details for an unlawful purpose to obtain money, goods, services, or real property without consent can be found guilty of identity theft. If you have more questions about check fraud, don’t hesitate to contact us right away.

Potential Punishments

There are a wide range of potential sentences that someone may face for check fraud. Depending on how much the check was worth can be a factor in the severity of the consequences. For instance, if you are accused of writing a bad check for $950 or more in the state of California, it is deemed a felony. Felony charges often carry a maximum of three years in jail. Anything less would be a misdemeanor and a penalty of one year in maximum security jail. Because the repercussions can vary so greatly and be categorized differently, it’s important to have our check fraud lawyers evaluate your situation and then work towards a defense strategy. There is no time to wait, as the longer you take to hire a defense team, the less opportunity there is to create a defense that works. Time is truly of the essence when it comes to criminal charges, so now is the day to speak with a legal team who is knowledgeable in criminal offenses.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
