Federal Racketeering Defense Attorneys
Originally, racketeering was used by federal prosecutors to go after gang and Mafia-related crimes. However, RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) still applies to present day white collar crimes-related charges. RICO is very broad sweeping and prosecutors can use it in conjunction with many other crimes such as wire fraud, mail fraud and drug crimes.

In addition, we are more than adept at handling federal cases. We understand how much is at stake here, including not just criminal penalties but your reputation and your future. We will work hard to build a strong defense for your case and seek to reduce penalties as much as possible.

Texas Racketeering Attorneys
No matter what stage of the game you are in, whether at investigation or indictment, we strongly urge you to obtain strong federal criminal defense representation.
In order to be convicted of racketeering, prosecutors will have to prove the alleged defendant was part of an enterprise or organization, engaging in illegal activity during a 10-year period. Due to this lengthy period of time, federal law enforcement may be monitoring individuals for years, slowly building a case. We will quickly start working on our own defense on your behalf, utilizing all possible strategies, including making sure all evidence was obtained in a way that did not violate your constitutional rights.
Federal racketeering charges often involve:
- Wire fraud
- Mail fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Money laundering
- Drug charges
