Although racketeering laws were originally created to confront the mob, state and federal governments are now using them go after a host of allegedly corrupt organizations: everything from police departments and businesses to alleged gangs. A criminal defense attorney for more than 10 years, Nishay K. Sanan, Esq., understands the laws used to prosecute organizations for racketeering.
With a background in accounting and tax and an in-depth knowledge of RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act), attorney Sanan pays close attention to each factual and legal detail of a case. He is an experienced United States trial lawyer who fights hard for his clients’ rights and freedom.
Even when clients are incarcerated, Nishay Sanan spends the necessary time – days, if necessary – to gather and develop a detailed understanding of the facts of their cases. He talks extensively with clients so that he has in-depth, personal knowledge about the exact circumstances of each client’s case. He can examine complex documents, perform a meticulous and effective investigation of the evidence, and prepare strong, persuasive legal arguments.
Sometimes, success can be achieved before a trial. An effective strategy often involves making pre-trial motions to get a case dismissed or to get critical evidence excluded. It means having an approach that’s tailored to the unique circumstances of the case so that you have the best chances of winning your freedom and your life back.
In racketeering charges, the statute of limitations for charging specific crimes often has special importance. Sometimes events that happened long ago can be included in racketeering charges, even though they would be unable to be prosecuted under other laws.
