Federal Conspiracy And RICO Attorneys Serving New York City
Conspiracy is a powerful legal tool for federal prosecutors because evidentiary rules are very broad, and conspiracy allows a person to be charged simply for agreeing to commit a crime, even if that crime is never committed or is committed by someone else. As a result, those charged with conspiracy need skilled legal representation.
Our firm defends individuals charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States government and other federal conspiracies. Our firm has met with great success, having recently achieved acquittals of federal narcotics conspiracies and federal conspiracies to commit murder. We also defend against state conspiracy charges.
Similarly, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act is used to prosecute people more for their associations than their acts. Like conspiracy, RICO charges are often added by federal prosecutors to make conviction more probable, especially in cases involving money laundering, drug trafficking, embezzlement, extortion and bribery, securities fraud, obstruction, counterfeiting, murder and murder for hire.
Those accused of conspiracy or RICO crimes need to obtain quality legal counsel. Call the New York City RICO and conspiracy defense attorneys at Miedel & Mysliwiec LLP at 212-235-1129 or describe your problem using this form.
