Gainesville Organized Crime Defense Attorneys

Are you being investigated for or have you been charged with an organized crime?

Do you feel that you were arrested for simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time? If so, you need the help of an experienced criminal attorney to determine your best defense strategy. In the modern commercial world, it is not uncommon for an innocent individual to be involved in a crime with no intent of participating in unlawful activities. Most organized crime groups today no longer fit the stereotypes associated with a street gang or mob family, and it is easy to become entangled in an organized crime scheme while being totally unaware of the group's vertical structure and control.

Types of Organized Crime

At the Law Offices of Edwards & Jones, our lawyers understand the legal strategies needed for the defense of criminal charges involving:

  • Fraudulent Schemes
  • Embezzlement
  • Money Laundering
  • Loan Shark Operations
  • Trafficking of Stolen Goods
  • Hijacking of Cargo
  • Bribery
  • Securities "Pump & Dump"
  • Smuggling & Prostitution
  • Racketeering (Civil RICO)

Legal Defense Strategies | Cooperating with Investigators

Generally speaking, organized crime groups aim to create a genuine front for laundering illegally gained income through legitimate businesses. The hierarchical structure of these groups protects those in power from being easily identified by law enforcement. These groups exist in violation of multiple state statutes and federal racketeering laws. Racketeering is a crime under Chapter 895 of the Florida Statutes, and these laws are incredibly complex. If you are being investigated for participation in an organized crime group, it is critical that you protect your rights and have an attorney by your side. It is all too easy for one's own defense to be damaged while attempting to cooperate with investigators without legal representation present.
