New York RICO Attorneys Defending Racketeering Charges

Racketeering is a broad term that encompasses many types of criminal activity. In a range of cases, most often involving drug trafficking or some form of alleged conspiracy, federal prosecutors may choose to file charges under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, which was passed in 1961. Whatever the charge, hiring skilled RICO attorneys is imperative.

Proven Defense against Serious Federal Charges

If RICO or racketeering charges have been filed against you — or if you or people you associate with are under investigation for criminal offenses such as drug trafficking or money laundering, murder, arson or a range of other felonies – the quality of your defense attorney will almost certainly have a direct impact on your future. Please contact us now to request a consultation with Mark J. Sacco at our office in Albany.

Prior Acquittals and Dismissals in Cases Involving Conspiracy and RICO

Because of the potential for a decades-long prison sentence and required forfeiture of valuable assets, the filing of a RICO indictment can add gravity and complexity to your already serious situation. These serious circumstances demand an attorney who understands federal law and trial procedure from experience — and one with a record of success in comparable, high-stakes federal cases.  New York-based criminal defense lawyer Mark J. Sacco has the qualifications you need in a defense attorney. For example, conspiracy and racketeering charges against our client were dismissed when we established they were based on wrongful accusations.
