Money Laundering Defense in Chicago

Have you or someone you care about been accused of money laundering? It is important to know what the accusation means and what may happen to you. The federal crime of money laundering generally involves the attempt or process of making money derived from illegal means or “dirty” money appear legal or “clean.” Through the Bank Secrecy Act, Money Laundering Control Acts, the Anti-Drug Abuse Act, the Patriot Act, and the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act, the federal government has at its disposal a wide variety of laws and significant funds dedicated to the investigation and prosecution of federal money laundering crimes. If you have been charged with federal money laundering or any other white collar crime, you need an experienced money laundering lawyer immediately.

Generally, people are under investigation for money laundering charges related to drug activity, illegal gambling, and attempts to avoid payment of federal income taxes. In additional to the potential consequences for those underlying charges, an investigation or indictment for federal money laundering may lead to the risk of extended prison sentences. Prosecutions of federal money laundering crimes can also result in the seizure and possible forfeiture of money, houses and cars. Last year, United States prosecutors obtained almost 900 money laundering convictions, with an average prison sentence of six years. Don’t become a victim of these harsh federal money laundering statutes and sentences.

He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was...

"I am so appreciative of the help and support that I received from Michael and his team members! They truly helped me figure out my case and I got outstanding results. If anyone can help you get great results, it’s Michael. I had an immigration issue as well and he worked with my immigration lawyer to help find the best solution. He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was. I definitely don’t want to go through any of this again but I’m glad that I had the support to get through this."
