I want to press criminal charges - what kind of attorney do I need?

Recommended Posts

My "friend" wrote and cashed one of my checks for an unapproved $138,000.00 

The bank has closed the case and I want to press charges against this person.

I know she would want to hire a criminal defense attorne    ***BUT***    What kind of attorney do I need?

You can't press charges, only the prosecutor can do that. Your first step would be reporting this crime to the police. You don't need a lawyer for that or any future criminal prosecution of your "friend."

You don't.

 

You report the alleged crime to the police and/or the local district attorney or prosecuting attorney.  If any charges are to be pressed the DA/prosecutor will do it.

 

If you want to sue your former friend for money, then just about any attorney who does civil litigation can do that.
