Miami Money Laundering Defense Attorney

Money laundering is the act of disguising money that has been illegally obtained in an attempt to hide its origin. Because money laundering crimes are often associated with other crimes, such as drug and narcotic crimes, or federal fraud crimes, the federal government places a serious emphasis on prosecuting money laundering crimes to the fullest extent of the law.

If you have been accused of money laundering in federal court, you will need the help of a Miami federal criminal defense lawyer.

Petruzzi, P.A., we have represented more than 400 federal criminal defense cases!
