At Gounaris Abboud, we understand that one criminal conviction can alter your life path. Recently, a nursing school graduate came to our firm just as she was about to become a certified registered nurse. The woman was thrilled about her upcoming milestone, but the process suddenly came to a halt when she was indicted with a number of forgery charges. The charges stemmed from an action that our client had taken about three years ago. The client helped a friend by cashing some checks for her because the friend claimed that she did not have an account.
Our client had no idea that she was cashing stolen and forged checks that her friend had obtained. When law enforcement targeted her for the crime, she came to us, hoping for assistance. We negotiated the case with the prosecutor for months, and then hired Dave Cook to conduct a polygraph test on the client. Our client passed the test, and a few months later the prosecutor dismissed the case. Our client is now working towards her goal of becoming a certified registered nurse. She is thankful that her record has not been damaged because of a friend’s poor behavior.
At Gounaris Abboud, we want each client to have the chance to pursue his or her goals for the future. A criminal conviction can alter a person’s life in drastic and devastating ways. In some careers, an individual will not be accepted to work if he or she has a criminal conviction. Hire Gounaris Abboud today if you have been charged with fraud or forgery and were framed for the act. The attorneys at this Dayton criminal defense firm will do all that they can to prove your innocence and get you the case dismissal or not guilty verdict that you desire.
