Seeking Strong Defense for Criminal Charges? Protecting Your Rights Through a Personalized Approach

Florida Racketeering (RICO) Lawyers

Miami White Collar Crime Defense

Florida's RICO Act (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization) is mirrored after the federal RICO Act, which targets criminal enterprises that engage in the unlawful acquisition of funds, also known as racketeering. Similar to its federal counterpart, Florida's RICO laws also criminalize a broad category of racketeering activity, such as fraud and gang-related activities.

If you are facing RICO-related charges, a Miami RICO attorney at Mitchell & West LLC can discuss your case and explain your options. We aggressively fight for our clients' rights in a manner that preserves their long-term interests.

Under Florida's RICO laws, it is illegal for a person to:

  • Use proceeds from illegal activity to acquire an establishment, enterprise or property
  • Maintain or control property or enterprise that was acquired through unlawful means
  • Be employed to participate in racketeering activity
  • Conspire or attempt to engage in racketeering activity
