The money laundering cases I routinely defend are similar to my illegal drug cases in that they typically stem from traffic stops on Interstate-40. If a large sum of money is found and drug-trafficking is suspected, a criminal charge for money laundering is often filed. In my experience, a money laundering case is usually filed in conjunction with an asset forfeiture case.
Because of the close connection with drug-trafficking, money laundering cases raise the same legal issues as illegal drug cases and are investigated and defended in the same manner.
Please give me a call if you have been charged with money laundering and need the assistance of a criminal defense lawyer. I will gladly discuss your case with you.
