Fighting Federal Racketeering Charges

The federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) was implemented to crack down on organized crime. It targets individuals and groups operating illegal businesses for profit or engaging in fraudulent enterprises. Various groups – from corrupt police departments to motorcycle gangs – have been found guilty of racketeering and therefore violating RICO.

At LaHood Norton Law Group, we defend those accused of violating RICO by committing federal racketeering. We deliver aggressive defense strategies with our clients’ needs in mind.
