Attorney forged my signature on legal document
I have been dealing with an attorney for few months now regarding bankruptcy. I have recently went to the bankruptcy court and met with the judge. My attorney told me to answer and lie on some basic questions if the judge asks. I didn't realize I was going to be under oath, but I still proceeded and answered the questions according to my attorney. It has been bugging me ever since and I understand I have lied, but I really had to make a choice. This lawyer is also my parent's attorney and I don't want to ruin the relationship between them. My parent's do not know that the attorney advised me to lie, but they told me I should just deal with her and move on, if possible. It has been a week and I have been contemplating about reporting myself and the attorney to the judge, but I wasn't sure what the outcome would be. Right now, as I was about to go to bed, I realize the document I saw in the court room had my ''copied'' signature. My attorney forged my signature. What can I do?

Re: Attorney forged my signature on legal document
I am confused as to what you mean as to copied signature? What document were you being shown? Had you not signed said document at any time?
