Money Laundering ∙ A Complex Crime

Money laundering originally referred to the means by which a gang or the mob would turn "dirty" money from a crime into "clean" money, with a difficult to trace origin. Today, with global financial markets interacting on a 24/7 basis, money laundering has become more complex and commonplace as a white collar crime.

Money laundering is a crime in which the prosecution will take a great deal of time building a case prior to actually indicting an individual. By the time you are indicted, the forensic accounting may have created a paper trail that can be overwhelming. For this reason, do not wait to see if you will be indicted. If you believe you are being investigated, it is not too early to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney.
