The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) is perhaps one of the most complex criminal statutes on the books. At the Fort Lauderdale, Florida, law office of Bruce L. Udolf, P.A., we represent individuals and businesses that are investigated and/or charged under the RICO law. Often, the government will charge those involved in investment fraud (Ponzi schemes) with RICO violations.
Our South Florida law firm has the capacity to represent a broad spectrum of clients charged with RICO violations based on conduct including: union-related activity, traditional organized crime offenses, investment fraud drug trafficking and adult entertainment-related offenses. We tailor the legal strategies we use to our clients’ goals and the facts of the case.
The Law on RICO
In the past, use of the RICO statute was focused more on what was traditionally thought to be organized crime related activities, such as extortion, violence and loan-sharking. Today’s prosecutors, however, tend to use the RICO statute to cast a wide net over a host of individuals and businesses to take down a network of criminal activities and defendants in one prosecution.This is one of the many reasons that RICO cases are so complex. These cases involve testimony from numerous witnesses, extensive paper trails and, often, federal investigations that span several years. It is essential that a person facing RICO charges engage the services of a veteran trial lawyer, one experienced in the defense of these charges. Attorney Bruce Udolf has handled numerous RICO cases over his career, which spans more than 30 years.
