Money Laundering vs. Structuring
Here is some important information to understand regarding money laundering
- Money laundering, unlike structuring, is possessing or moving money derived
from, or used for, criminal activity.
- Structuring is controlling the amount of money received or deposited in
such a way as to avoid state and federal financial transaction reporting
- Both crimes are equally as serious and can result in consequences that
affect your freedom and your future.
Our Miami money laundering defense lawyers approach financial crime cases
as a team. We rely on everyone's knowledge, experience, and background
in order to analyze your case from every angle and develop a thorough
defense strategy based on your desired outcome.
Attorney David B. Rothman's experience as a former prosecutor also helps us prepare for the challenges
and tactics used to obtain a conviction. We are on your side, and we know
how to fight for your rights.
Understanding Your Charges
Individuals and small businesses are not always aware that anti-money laundering
statutes apply to them. For example, small businesses are required to
file reports when they receive in excess of $10,000. When they don't
— with or without knowing the requirements — they are actually
violating the law.
These crimes are easily detectable due to the full paper trail associated
with a money transfer. Similarly, defending against such charges involves
detailed analysis of financial records. Our firm's attorneys are experienced
in this defense work and can help you or your business understand your
charges and take appropriate legal action.
