Check Fraud

Thorough and proactive defense from a lawyer with experience at all levels of the state and federal court systems is paramount to a favorable outcome against check fraud charges. If you have been accused of writing a bad or fake check in a scheme to defraud a financial institution, retailer, supplier or the government, you face civil and criminal penalties, including extremely steep fines and a prison sentence.

Check fraud may refer to many fraudulent pretenses, representations or promises involving:

  • Forged checks
  • Check kiting
  • Stolen checks
  • Bounced checks or bad checks
  • Account abandonment/embezzlement
  • Identity theft

Many of these potential crimes can get out of hand very quickly. At Conaway & Strickler, P.C., our experienced attorneys understand the circumstances that may have led to a check fraud investigation and criminal charges. We don’t judge our clients who are under investigation for white collar crimes. We defend them aggressively in both state and federal courts throughout Georgia and the United States.

Decisive Action | Thorough Investigation

The value of fraudulent checks and the total take on any alleged scheme will direct the civil and criminal penalties one faces in state or federal court. Prosecutions for check fraud schemes have increased dramatically as the Internet and the digital age have created broader consumer choice and enhanced opportunities for complicated fraud schemes.

Paper and digital trails get extremely complicated quickly and require advanced technological skills to dissect and discover the facts. Our Atlanta-based check fraud defense attorneys work with forensic accountants and other experts to uncover the truth and present the facts in our clients’ best interests. We prepare every case we handle for trial.

Our independent investigations are comprehensive, and we fight to mitigate consequences and get charges dismissed at every possible opportunity. In some cases, we can even prevent arrest and public knowledge of an investigation if we get involved soon enough.

Thank you for your magnificent representation of our son in court today. It seemed like everyone in the courtroom was against him, and you were his champion.

Our family wants to thank Conaway and Strickler for their professional and hard work in this case. We never thought this nightmare was going to be over so soon. With receiving a No Bill from the Grand Jury, my employer has given me my job back. This has been by far a true miracle. The R. Family
