HAVE YOU BEEN ACCUSED OF:
Racketeering / RICO
Racketeering (also known as RICO) involves a commissioned pattern of predicate offenses by a group with a common purpose or course of conduct making up an “enterprise.” It covers a broad category of criminal acts that includes bribery, sexual exploitation of children (prostitution rings), illegal gambling, mail fraud, wire fraud, money laundering and many more.
Racketeering and RICO is associated with organized crime, since it is conducted by a group. RICO can be associated with a legal business or illegal entity. As such, it is a prime target for prosecuting attorneys at both the state and federal level.
RICO and Racketeering charges are commonly prosecuted at the federal level. The best lawyers know that federal Courts are different from State Courts and require a different type of defense. Federal charges are investigated by large government agencies with virtually unlimited resources and time to build their cases. If you suspect that you may be charged or under investigation by the federal government, it is critical that you obtain the services of an experienced federal criminal defense attorney.
Racketeering charges, particularly when handled in the federal court system, can be subject to strict sentencing guidelines and substantial prison terms, fines and restitution and can even instigate a separate civil RICO case against you. Even the accusation crime, regardless of the evidence, can do substantial harm to your professional reputation.
FEDERAL DEFENSE FOR RACKETEERING
Pre-trial preparation is the key to successful defense of racketeering accusation in federal court. Your federal defense team of lawyers needs to have the experience and expertise to determine which records are relevant to your case and thoroughly analyze these records.
The investigation of any type of organized crime charge generally requires discovery motions by attorneys to compel prosecutors, employers, banks and other institutions to turn over records to be used in your defense.
Racketeering and RICO cases usually involve large amounts of records and witnesses. These cases are often won and lost based on pre-trial preparation by the lawyers. Your defense team of attorneys must have the expertise and time to conduct its own investigation of your case.
Because of the time and specialized skills required by lawyers, winning requires a defense team, not just a single attorney. Generally speaking, prosecuting attorneys do not pursue cases they feel they can lose in trial. This is why it is critical for the lawyers to dig even deeper than the prosecution and inject reasonable doubt that will let you win in trial, if necessary.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY:
Gina was like a lioness protecting her cub.
I hired Gina and her team for my son who was facing 10 years for something they said he did when he was 17 years old. Gina was like a lioness protecting her cub. She did not stop. She fought hard and was able to defend the charges. We are so grateful to her and her team. They gave us our son. He recovered his life!– L. W.
Best defense lawyers in the country.
I hired this law firm in 2014 for my son who was facing 16 years in prison for a felony robbery. Lina Helou answered all our questions. I was extremely distraught regarding what my son was facing but Lina comforted me and told me that it would be okay. And thank goodness LibertyBell saved my son from going to jail and they were able to obtain only 3 years of probation. I could not have hired a better law firm for my son and if you want the best defense call LibertyBell Law Group. Thank God for this great group of lawyers.– V. J.
A great team of lawyers.
I do not have enough words to describe how incredible the experience with this firm was. They work very hard to make sure you have winning results. I could not have asked for better service from the moment I called, until my case was over. I was glad I made the right choice. Thank you again LibertyBell Law Group!– S. O.
She took her time to review all of my evidence and proved my innocence.
My father had found this group through his company and coworkers. I was assigned Gina Tennen and I cannot explain in just a review on how gratefull I am to be working with her. My case was an accusation of unlawful sex. This had looked extremely bad on my part since I was in a fraternity and she was in a sorority. During these times with Greek life, there are too many bad stigmas surrounding these organizations. Gina had believed in me and knew that I was innocent and that these accusations just were not true. She took her time to review all of my evidence and proved my innocence. I totally recommend this law group because they are willing to put in the work to help your situation.– C. D.
Gina always kept me fully aware of how the case was proceeding.
When I first heard I was under a criminal investigation, I initially thought I would try and resolve this in the best way possible, without legal representation, as we were all interested in a "just" outcome. I quickly discovered that was not the case and contacted Gina at Liberty Bell. She clearly described the expectations and the choices available to me. She was always available to me, and when I called, if she couldn't talk with me at that time, she would quickly get back to me. Gina always kept me fully aware of how the case was proceeding. Her fee's were stipulated up front, as well as what those fees covered and what they did not.– S. B.
Attorney Gina Tennen was on point from day one.
Attorney Gina Tennen was on point from day one putting pressure on the sherrif's office to get things handled. With Child molestation accusatinos being thrown around Gina and Attorney Castro were great at keeping the pressure on and had no charges filled. The DCFS indications were appealed and we won with flying colors. Great service, great work, and will use again for all legal matters.– A. B.
Will Recommend, Total Experience, Awesome Team
Being involved in legal matters can be scary. When researching who to put my trust in, I came across Liberty and I am glad that I did. From the first time that I met with Gina and her team she made me feel comfortable and listened to all that I had to say. She assured me that her team would be on it and that they would do everything that they could! A little while in, Alan took over my case. When meeting with him you can tell that this is his passion and I immediately knew he was going to do everything in his power to make the outcome right! He was relentless and worked day and night working on the case. He kept in constant communication with me and truly cared not only about me but about my family as well. I am forever grateful for the support that this whole team has given me and would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for truly the best lawyers!– L. B.
