Organized Crime Defense

Do you feel you were arrested for being in the wrong place at the wrong time?

If so, you need the help of a criminal attorney to determine your best defense strategy. In the business world, it is not uncommon for an innocent individual to be involved in a crime with no premeditated intent of participating in unlawful activities. Since most organized crime groups today don't fit the stereotypes associated with a street gang or mob family, it is easy to become entangled while being totally unaware of the group's vertical structure and control. But, don't be fooled into forfeiting your rights.

At the Law Offices of Thomas L. Edwards, P.A. , 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 reinvesting illegally gained income into legitimate businesses and their hierarchical structure protects those in power from being easily identified by law enforcement. For the most part, they exist in violation of multiple state statutes and federal racketeering laws. Don't be fooled into forfeiting your rights. It is all too easy for one's own defense to be damaged while attempting to cooperate with investigators without legal representation present.

Client Reviews
Mr.Jones went beyond needed services as a lawyer to help me with my very in depth case. Very helpful throughout the whole 6-7 month process. Not only did he get all my questions answered to the best of his abilities but also really showed compassion for my family & I during the case as well as after. 5 star lawyer, highly recommended. Thank you for all your hard work!
★★★★★
I hired Mr. Jones to represent my son. We had never had to hire a lawyer and I was anxious. Mr. Jones took the time to explain what was happening and it helped lessen my concerns. Once we hired him he started work immediately and was able to get my son's case thrown out. We are very satisfied with his services. Robert H.
★★★★★
I hired Christopher for situation I got myself in. He worked hard to get my case dropped. I definitely would recommend this attorney to anyone needing one. He puts his heart in his work. Roy M.
★★★★★
I had the pleasure of having Mr. Edwards represent me in 2006. While I was charged with a crime, Mr Edwards insisted sternly that he was very confident he could successfully defend the charges against me. This man exudes confidence. It is my opinion that he is clearly one of the best lawyers in the city of Gainesville. You can't go wrong with Mr. Edwards!!! Everette Sr.

We are from Lake City, Florida. As parents, we sought the help of Mr. Edwards in my daughter's behalf. As a young lady, she had acquired multiple felonies with the prospect of 10-15 years in prison facing her. Mr. Edwards heard our case, took it on with confidence, and got her sentence reduced to 10 years probation, and restitution. That was 8 years ago, and my daughter is married, has a son, and is doing great. She hasn't even had a traffic violation. Because Mr. Edwards believed in us and took a chance, we will be forever be in his debt. He is a great lawyer, with a very big heart. Colin
