Combat A Serious Crime With A Serious Defense
Money laundering is defined as a financial transaction or scheme intended to conceal money that has been unlawfully obtained. It is a crime that is frequently and aggressively prosecuted in federal court and results in significant prison sentences. Powerful federal agencies such as the FBI, DEA or IRS are also often associated with an investigation.

Money Laundering Is Rarely Charged In Isolation
Although it is possible, money laundering is rarely charged as a singular or isolated offense. In most cases, it is charged as an investigative tool or in addition to offenses related to organized crime or illegal activities, such as:
- Fraudulent business transactions or activity
- Drug trafficking
- Interstate transportation of stolen property
- Tax evasion
- White-collar crimes
Even when underlying charges have been dismissed for lack of evidence or another reason, prosecutors often choose to continue to pursue a conviction for money laundering.
