Sophisticated Defense For Identity Theft And Forgery Charges

There is big money in computer-based crimes, which in turn attracts the attention of law enforcement. State and federal agencies now devote whole task forces to combating identity theft, internet scams, forgery and related crimes.

If you are caught up in such an investigation, the Detroit law firm of LaRene & Kriger PLC has the experience and resources to provide a solid defense. Our accomplished trial lawyers can handle state prosecutions or federal charges, representing the accused in Southeast Michigan and statewide.

Computer Crimes Are Serious Felonies

We can intervene if you have been arrested, indicted or questioned by federal agents in relation to any computer or internet crimes:

  • Identity theft (Social Security numbers, bank accounts, etc.)
  • Phishing (using fraudulent emails to obtain sensitive personal data)
  • Credit card fraud or selling credit card numbers
  • Forgery (fake IDs, passports, immigration papers, etc.)
  • Money laundering
  • Computer hacking, espionage or sabotage
  • Wire fraud and mail fraud
  • Distributing child pornography over the internet or dark web

Any of these offenses is a felony crime, punishable by years in prison and major fines. With so much at stake, you need a trial lawyer who knows how to assert your rights and pick apart the government’s case.
