Chicago Money Laundering Defense Attorney
WHAT IS MONEY LAUNDERING?
Money laundering is the process of making money obtained illegally appear legal by funneling the money through an intermediary business or party. The federal government prosecute money laundering crimes under the Bank Secretary Act, the Patriot Act, and the Money Laundering Control Acts.
Money laundering is both a state and federal crime and can carry life-changing criminal consequences upon conviction. As such, charges of this nature are prosecuted with extreme tenacity and require the expertise of an aggressive attorney to be defended against.

WHAT ARE THE PENALTIES FOR MONEY LAUNDERING?
A conviction of a federal money laundering charge can bring the following penalties:
- Up to 20 years in prison
- Up to $500,000 in fines or double the value of the property involved
- Seizure and forfeiture of involved money, real estate, and vehicles
People usually fall under investigation for money laundering in relation to drug crimes, illegal gambling rackets, or attempts to avoid paying federal income taxes. Federal money laundering cases usually take place within the context of a larger racketeering case under the RICO act. Given the severity of these cases and the massive penalties they can carry, if you are facing charges, it is imperative you get in touch with our firm as soon as possible to begin building your defense and reduce your chances of conviction.
