Identity Theft Attorney In Clarksville

In Tennessee, it is illegal to use another person's identifying information to obtain money or some other benefit. Prosecutors take the crime of identity theft very seriously and those convicted can face severe penalties.

I am Edward E. DeWerff and I am a criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor. In my decades of experience as a lawyer, I have represented clients throughout the Clarksville area who have been accused of identity theft and other white collar crimes.

What Is Identity Theft?

In Tennessee, a person commits the crime of identity theft by using another person's information for some unlawful act without the person's permission. Personal information can include Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, health insurance information, driver's licenses and other data.

Could I Go To Jail?

The penalties for an identity theft conviction in Tennessee can include years behind bars and thousands of dollars in fines, depending on the circumstances of the case. A court may also order a person convicted of identity theft to pay monetary compensation to those affected.

At the Law Office of Edward E. DeWerff, I work closely with my clients to explain their rights, help them understand their options and develop an effective defense strategy. As a former prosecutor, I know how seriously district attorneys take identity theft prosecutions and I put my experience to use in defense of my clients.
