Counterfeiting Offenses

If you’ve been charged with or are under investigation for federal counterfeiting, don’t hesitate to reach out for help from one of the best criminal law firms in Georgia and the country – Conaway & Strickler, P.C. When it comes to defense against federal criminal counterfeiting charges, we are the real deal.

Counterfeiting, the act of replicating something of value and/or passing it off as authentic, has been around since ancient times, and it has always been illegal. Specifically, federal statutes bar the reproduction and sale of currency, government securities and postage stamps. In recent years, statutes have been expanded to include merchandise like CDs, DVDs and trademarked goods like designer handbags.

Penalties for a federal counterfeit conviction depend on the magnitude of the crime, but can include fines and imprisonment, property seizure and restitution. It is critical to be represented by an attorney well-versed in federal criminal laws and the federal sentencing guidelines like the Georgia counterfeiting attorneys at Conaway & Strickler, P.C. We are a nationally recognized law firm with a record of successfully defending our clients in federal court.

Defendants facing federal counterfeiting charges often have some options in their defense. In some cases, it’s possible to argue that there was no intent, and that the fake object was created merely as a novelty or joke. Other times, a defendant can argue successfully that the reproduction was too poor to be passed off as authentic. You can depend on the experienced attorneys at Conaway & Strickler, P.C., for creative, out-of-the-box thinking to identify and raise all possible defenses on your behalf.

Our overall objective as criminal defense attorneys is to develop a strategy that will avoid a conviction altogether.
