Practiced Experience In Money Laundering Defense
A criminal charge of money laundering is frequently added on top of other charges by zealous prosecutors looking to enhance the penalties of a crime. When a charge of money laundering is brought on its own, it may be because the government’s evidence of other crimes is weak or tainted and this is the one area that can be proven based only on a paper trail.
Whether you are facing money laundering charges alone or with a drug charge, white collar crime charges, fraud, conspiracy or corruption, you need a strong defense. Money laundering cases can be heard in either state or federal court so you need a defense attorney who is experienced in both courts.

Money Laundering and Businesses
Money laundering charges can pose huge challenges for businesses if corporate assets are alleged to have been purchased or be the result of a money laundering scheme. For example, if someone buys a franchise using funds from an illegal enterprise or with the intent to launder money through the business, the feds will investigate whether the franchise owner knew or had reason to know. If they did, they could also face criminal charges. Foreign businesses and security investment opportunities can also raise questions about money laundering.
