WHAT CAN I DO IF I WAS ARRESTED FOR FALSE DOCUMENTS

New York CityAnd Westchester Criminal Defense Attorney

Our NYC criminal defense attorneys and White Plains criminal defense lawyers have defended hundreds, if not thousands of cases involving criminal charges for false documents. With the United States Immigration Laws being as draconian as they are, many undocumented immigrants face a quandary of using false documents to obtain work or don’t work or eat. The problem is that the United States government requires every employer to file an employer verification form with their employee’s social security numbers. The dilemma arises because undocumented workers are not given social security numbers.

False document charges arise when undocumented aliens fill out forms which require social security numbers and make up numbers or carry fake social security or other identification cards. These charges are also brought when undocumented aliens apply for licenses such as landscaper licenses, contractor licenses or drivers licenses and put false social security numbers down on applications.

Our NYC criminal defense attorneys and Westchester criminal defense lawyers have extensive experience in defending false document cases and can oftent get charges reduced, and avoid jail or even probation. When considering a plea deal, the immigration consequences must be considered because many of the sections under New York law involve fraud elements, which are generally considered crimes involving moral turpitude under Immigration Law. Michael Joseph has handled numerous charges and has been able to get charges reduced and structured plea deals so that the conviction will not result in immigration consequences.
