Racketeering Activity

Racketeering is the federal crime of conspiring to organize to commit crimes, particularly as a regular business ("organized crime" or "the Mafia"). Organized crime is crime carried out systematically by formal criminal organizations. The Organized Crime Control Act ( U.S. , 1970) defines organized crime as "The unlawful activities of ... a highly organized, disciplined association...". Some criminal organizations, such as terrorist organizations, are politically motivated. Mafias are criminal organizations whose primary motivation is profit. Gangs sometimes become "disciplined" enough to be considered "organized". The act of engaging in criminal activity as a structured group is referred to in the U.S. as racketeering. In the United States , organized crime is often prosecuted federally under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.

Have you been charged with a criminal Racketeering?

When people are charged with a crime they face the prospect of incarceration. Ultimately that can bring with it probation and parole, large fines, forced registration with law enforcement, and perhaps most damaging, a record that severely hinders even the most rehabilitated - sometimes for the rest of their lives.

What's worse is that the damage can extend even to the accused's family in many ways. Finally, where a crime has been perpetrated the accused must acknowledge the damage that may have been done to any innocent victim. While we don't claim the ability to undo harms already done, we are here to provide finest and most ethical legal defense you'll find anywhere.

  • Be available 24/7. The key to good defense work is diligence and speed. We take this job seriously.
  • Spend crucial time on your case so that it is prepared as good as is possible at each stage in the process.
  • Spend time with you (and your family) learning and understanding you and your case.
  • Spend time in investigation so that we will know the case better than even the law enforcement agency involved.
  • Be in contact with the DA or US Attorney in an attempt to ensure that the case, where possible, is terminated as quickly as possible.
  • Hire and manage investigators, who are often able to impeach witnesses for the government who exaggerate or change their stories at trial.
