Counterfeiting Charges in Illinois

Counterfeiting is a crime dating back centuries. Modern technology, however, has made counterfeiting possible for many more people to counterfeit many more kinds of objects. To try to stem the tide, the federal government devotes massive amounts of money, time and agents to investigating, prosecuting and punishing suspected counterfeiters. Unfortunately, that means innocent people sometimes get caught up, and those who actually are involved in the crime can face extraordinarily harsh sentences.

Our law firm has the experience necessary to succeed in complex federal counterfeiting cases involving:

  • Reproduction of U.S. currency, whether paper money or coins
  • Counterfeiting of government-issued bonds
  • Creating fraudulent mortgage documents or any other kind of legal document or contract
  • Counterfeiting any form of government-issued identification (fake driver's licenses, Social Security numbers, immigration documents or identification)
  • Fraudulent college degrees
