Austin Hot Checks Lawyers

Although it may seem like a minor offense, writing bad checks can lead to a serious legal situation that can majorly impact your criminal record. Also known as hot checks or bounced checks, bad checks occur when a person writes a check without the sufficient amount of funds in his or her checking account. In most cases, the amount the individual purchased with a dishonored check determines whether he or she faces misdemeanor charges or even felony charges.

Even if it is for a small amount, criminal charges for writing hot checks can be damaging to your reputation, professional life, and personal relationships. To make sure your rights are protected while facing these charges, contact knowledgeable Austin hot checks attorney Ian Inglis today at (512) 472-1950 and schedule your consultation with a qualified legal representative.
