Question: What are the penalties for Forgery in Texas?
When you’re charged with forgery in Texas, this is a very complicated offense. The statute is a couple pages long describing all the different ways that you can be charged with forgery. It usually requires a pretty in-depth investigation. You kind of need to see exactly what the state is saying as far committing a forgery.
A lot of people think forgery is just signing someone else’s name. Forgery can also involve presenting a document to somebody that you know is false. There are a lot of different ways to commit the offense, all of which you need to fight vigorously because in most cases, forgery is going to be considered a crime of moral turpitude, and it’s going to affect you down the road if you’re convicted.

Successful Case Defending White-Collar Crimes
Chris G. – The defendant was charged with felony theft in an alleged white-collar scheme. The defendant acting as a subcontractor (“sub”) on a big commercial project and was supposed to demo a large building, replacing in the process the HVAC system. The sub took the old AC and heating system to his shop and dismantled them selling them for scrap. The District Attorney’s office charged the sub for white collar felony theft. This case like many white- collar cases was very paper intensive. The construction contract incorporated the American Institute of Architects standard form of agreement (the AIA Agreement”) between Owner and Design Builder. The AIA Agreement was a lengthy document with many obligations imposed on the parties. However, it specifically allowed for the disposal of the old HVAC system. Therefore, our argument was strengthened that the sub could do whatever he wanted with the old HVAC system. Ultimately, we were able to get the case dismissed.
