Miami RICO Lawyer
What are racketeering charges?
The term RICO Act stands for the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act that was established in 1970 to prohibit companies involved in criminal activity from making financial gains through lawful business enterprises. If you have committed two or more particular criminal acts within a 10 year period, you may be at risk for racketeering charges under the federal RICO act. RICO charges are no small matter, and it is important to have the help of a Miami criminal defense attorney who can fight your charges with the law.
