Money laundering is a serious federal offense punishable by up to 20 years in prison, with fines exceeding half a million dollars, as well as the probable forfeiture of your assets and property. However, it is worth noting that money laundering is rarely a standalone charge. Penalties are much more severe if you are convicted on multiple counts of various white collar crimes often associated with money laundering, such as bank fraud, embezzlement, or racketeering, or other federal crimes. If you are under investigation for money laundering, it’s extremely important to secure legal representation promptly.
When the stakes are this high, you need a skilled legal advocate in your corner. As an experienced white collar criminal defense attorney with 30 years of experience in this highly complex field of law, I, Jonathan Blecher, P.A. want to hear your side of the story.

Money laundering involves the transfer of funds obtained through criminal activity which are then “laundered” through the front of a legitimate business. Even if you haven’t participated or profited from criminal activities, you can still face charges of money laundering if you attempted to conceal any “dirty money.” The most common form of money laundering involves overseas bank accounts unreported to the U.S. government.
If you’re aware of a pending investigation against you for money laundering charges, you should act quickly to retain qualified legal counsel. Federal prosecutors in money laundering cases are extremely motivated to win these high-profile cases and will do anything they can to build a strong case against you. As a former prosecutor myself, I am uniquely situated to see how both sides of the courtroom behave and what strategies prosecutors will likely use to secure a conviction.
