Proven Criminal Defense In Upstate New York

Defending Against Federal Money Laundering Charges

Money laundering charges are a powerful weapon in the arsenal of federal prosecutors. They allow the government to seize any assets or property that it can connect to criminal activity. The charge is seen most often in federal drug trafficking cases, but it applies equally to white collar crimes, in which money is moved around — “structured” — with the intention of disguising where it came from.

If you face such charges, it’s important to get a skilled defense lawyer in your corner. In Central New York, call Michael Spano at 315-350-3975. He serves clients throughout the Syracuse area.

Any financial transaction that generates an asset or a value as the result of an illegal act.
