At Martens Law Office in Boise, Idaho, criminal defense attorney Jared B. Martens gives the same thorough attention to a forgery or bad check writing case as he does to a case involving a major felony. It is his goal to protect the rights of his clients, including the right to a strong defense.
Whether a person is accused of writing a check on a closed bank account, or of forging a signature on a check or credit card slip, he will work with the district attorney and seek to have charges reduced or dismissed.
In a case where he recommends a plea bargain, Mr. Martens will work with the court to arrange a favorable sentencing option, such as probation rather than jail, a withheld judgment (where the judge withholds judgment for a period of time), restitution or retained jurisdiction known as a RIDER (boot camp rather than prison). He will then follow up with his client to see that the client understands the terms of probation.
Any charge of a petty theft offense, forgery, bad check, grand theft or other property crime must be taken seriously, because a conviction might have a long-lasting effect on the life of the accused. For that reason, if you have been arrested for or charged with a crime, it is extremely important to retain an experienced criminal defense lawyer at the first opportunity.
Martens Law Office has weekend and evening appointments available, offers free initial consultations, and accepts credit cards. If you would like to speak with Mr. Martens about a forgery or bad check charge, please contact the firm and arrange a free consultation. The firm's lawyer and staff are committed to providing responsive and attentive client service.
