Money laundering is an offense that law enforcement is targeting as a way to break up organized crime groups as well as drug rings. Authorities also use money-laundering charges as a means to seize assets and prevent people from being able to afford a national money laundering defense lawyer to assist in their defense.
At Boles Holmes White , located in Birmingham, Alabama, we do not let law enforcement or the prosecution draw conclusions and use the law to penalize you before you are convicted. We know how to prove what income has been earned legitimately that can be used toward attorneys’ fees, as well as how to disprove income that is alleged to have been earned illegitimately.
