Southern California Racketeering / RICO Violations Defense Attorney

Have you been accused of a RICO violation? Get help from an experienced racketeering defense attorney now.

A violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) is a very serious matter. Federal prosecutors do not bring this charge lightly, and if you are being accused of racketeering or a RICO violation it is highly likely that there is strong evidence against you. You absolutely cannot afford to entrust your defense to just any attorney. Instead, you need an experienced racketeering defense attorney like Chambers Law Firm. We know the law and we know the best strategies for RICO defense. You can rely on us to work aggressively to protect your rights and secure the most advantageous outcome possible to your case.

Types of RICO Crimes

The RICO Act is designed to deter organized crime by applying severe penalties to individuals convicted of committing or conspiring to commit two or more instances of “racketeering activity.” The law describes 36 different state and federal crimes that can qualify as RICO crimes when they are committed on behalf of a criminal enterprise. This includes crimes like:

  • Illegal Gambling
  • Bribery
  • Kidnapping
  • Murder
  • Money Laundering
  • Counterfeiting
  • Human Trafficking
  • Drug Trafficking
  • Embezzlement

How Your RICO Defense Attorney Can Help

RICO prosecutions are incredibly complex and typically involve many charges, allegations and types of evidence. There are a variety of defense strategies that can be productive in RICO cases. The first and best strategy would be to prove that you did not actually commit or conspire to commit the crimes specified in the RICO charge. Obviously if there was no criminal act, there was no RICO violation. If the prosecution can prove without a reasonable doubt that you did commit a crime, we can still work to disprove the RICO charge by arguing that you were not actually acting on behalf of a criminal enterprise, or that the group or organization you were acting for does not meet the legal definition of a criminal enterprise.

Even in the face of strong evidence, you should still hire a RICO defense attorney. We can negotiate with the prosecution to make sure you receive the most lenient penalty possible in exchange for your guilty plea.
