Money Laundering Lawyer in Miami

Accused of money laundering?

In its most basic terms, money laundering is the attempt to make dirty money look clean. Through moving the illegally gained funds into various accounts and investments, money launderers can make money appear to be legitimate. According to the U.S. Code 18 § 1956, Laundering of Monetary instruments, it is illegal to transfer money that was gained through illegal means, such as drug crimes, white collar crimes, or organized crimes. It is also illegal to try to hide where the money came from and attempt to make it look like it came from another source.

The first step that happens in money laundering is usually depositing the money into a bank or other financial institution. This can be fraught with risk as a large deposit of cash may alert the authorities that something is amiss. In order to make the cash flow difficult to track, the money launderer will then transfer the money into different offshore accounts and large purchases. Later on, they may deposit it into a domestic bank account to invest it so that is can be used.
