RICO/Money Laundering

Money Laundering Defense Attorneys

Disguising the origin of money is a crime both in the U.S. and internationally. Numerous laws apply in this area, including section 312 of the U.S. Patriot Act, the U.S. anti-racketeering statutes (18 U.S.C. 1951-1968, commonly known as "RICO"), and the Bank Secrecy Act. Charges of money laundering are often brought with drug trafficking cases, as are charges of tax evasion, wire fraud and mail fraud.

Complex federal statutes are likely to apply to your case, as well as mandatory federal sentencing guidelines. It is essential to work with a lawyer who understands these laws, as well as how they are most often interpreted and applied by federal judges.

Do You Suspect You Are Under Investigation?

You do not need to have a charge against you before you talk to a defense lawyer. In many federal cases, RICO investigations can last for months or even years before charges are ever brought. If there are signs that cause you to suspect you are under investigation, talk with an experienced defense lawyer now. Sometimes consulting an attorney early on in the process can prevent charges altogether.

The U.S. Patriot Act

The U.S. Patriot Act created regulations that affect many types of money transfers. You will attract the attention of the feds if you failure to file required CTRs for cash transactions of more than $10,000, or make multiple cash deposits or withdrawals at more than one location. If the government suspects that your money has been gained from illegal activity, you face the possibility of forfeiture of your assets as well as criminal charges.
