DuPage County Counterfeiting Defense Attorney

Building A Strategic Defense Against Counterfeiting Charges

The crime of counterfeiting involves the unauthorized reproduction of money, documents, or goods. Counterfeiting is typically charged as a federal crime, requiring the attention of a criminal defense lawyer who is comfortable handling complex federal criminal cases.

At the Law Office of Philip R. Nathe, our Naperville counterfeiting defense lawyer has more than 30 years of experience defending clients in DuPage County, Will County, Kane County, and across Illinois. We build intelligent, powerful defenses for clients accused of federal crimes, working to achieve positive results. Our attorney is skilled in negotiating with prosecutors for reduced charges, and he is at home defending clients in court when those negotiations are not productive.

Counterfeiting Charges in Illinois

Counterfeiting is a crime dating back centuries. Modern technology, however, has made counterfeiting possible for many more people to illegally duplicate multiple different kinds of objects. To try to stem the tide of this illegal activity, the federal government devotes massive amounts of money, time, and manpower to investigating, prosecuting, and punishing suspected counterfeiters. Unfortunately, that means innocent people sometimes get caught up in these cases, and those who are accused of being involved in these crimes 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 other forms of identification)
  • Fraudulent college degrees
