Strong Representation From Arlington Conspiracy Charges Attorneys
Money laundering, conspiracy and other financial crimes often also involve structuring. This crime involves taking cash transactions in excess of $10,000 and structuring them into smaller deposits in order to avoid scrutiny from the federal government. Although this practice is often used by criminal or drug enterprises, often other business owners and individuals innocently use this tactic to avoid looking suspicious to financial institutions. Instead, these small deposits are a red flag to banks, who report them to the federal government, triggering a criminal investigation and seizure of the funds.
Our criminal defense attorneys have the knowledge and skill to defend you throughout the investigation and, if necessary, the trial and appeals process. First and foremost, our strategy will involve avoiding criminal prosecution, instead resolving the case as a civil matter or as a deferred prosecution. In order to do so, we will work diligently to demonstrate why the transactions are innocent and the source of funds legitimate.
