COMMON FEDERAL CRIMINAL CHARGES
In general, racketeering involves interference with commerce using violence or threats, including extortion and robbery, and other crimes, such as money laundering (18 U.S. Code §1951-1960).
The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act (18 U.S. Code §1961-1968) is how federal authorities charge many individuals involved in organized crime, including but not limited to criminal conduct related to drugs, weapons, human trafficking, and the collection of unlawful debt.
RICO encompasses dozens of crimes and specifically allows leaders of criminal organizations to be charged for conduct they ordered other people to perform. For every count of violating RICO, you can be imprisoned for up to 20 years.

FROM OUR CRIMINAL LAW CLIENTS
"I would give 10 stars if I could! Ryan, in particular, helped me with a DWI case. I had never been charged with a crime like this before and did not know what to do or what to expect. Ryan let me know that I did have some favorable things going on in my case, but also set the expectation that I also had a high BAC, which was unfavorable. He referenced other cases to portray to me the favorable items in my case, which I found comforting. We connected the night before court and he reassured me that he was ready to present the case. Ryan got me the best outcome possible- my case was dismissed!!!! I’ve never been so relieved and elated in my life- such a burden lifted. Not only that, I’ll be hiring him/SeiferFlatow to help with an expungement- that’s what I call a one-stop shop! Thank you so much for giving me my life back, Ryan!”
"Ryan Ames was there for me always on court and was very competent. He always let us know the steps he was going to take in my case and all of the possible outcomes. Highly recommend.”
