Money Laundering
Areas of Practice

                have successfully represented a broad range of professionals, executives, and corporations charged with money laundering, including some of the most significant trials both in Massachusetts and elsewhere. If you or a family member is the subject of a money laundering investigation or prosecution, we invite you to contact us to learn more about the depth of our experience, skills and knowledge in this area.

The Department of Justice has successfully lobbied Congress for incredibly elastic and draconian money laundering statutes, which punish monetary transactions involving proceeds of specified unlawful activity that, generally, are designed with an intent to conceal the nature, source or ownership of the funds, or monetary transactions involving criminal proceeds that exceed $10,000.00. The government often supports its mail fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud, honest services fraud, or other criminal prosecutions with money laundering allegations, which can result in significantly increased criminal punishment.

In defending prosecutions involving money laundering statutes, an individual’s state of mind will often be a critical component, and defenses to charges of money laundering are both factually and legally complex. If you or a family member is the subject of such an investigation or prosecution, it is critically important that you obtain legal representation as early as possible in the process, such that your attorney can immediately begin his investigation in a timely manner. The goal of any such investigation is often twofold: acquire information essential to persuading the government that you have not committed any federal offense and, if necessary, begin to prepare a defense to a federal prosecution in the event the government ultimately decides to seek an indictment. We have the resources, experience and skills to effectively defend money laundering investigations or prosecutions, and invite you to contact us to learn more.

Testimonials

Rob guided me through the most difficult time in my life ... His preparation for the case and his execution in trial were truly the difference ... I truly trusted him with my life and he came through. Not a great promoter or guy who likes to hype, but he delivers where it counts. I am truly grateful that I selected his name over the vast number of attorneys in the Boston area. I rarely provide recommendations, but in Rob's case, I recommend that anyone facing serious criminal charges, where their freedom and livelihood is at stake, that they contact Rob.

~ CEO/Entrepeneur charged with wire and securities fraud, April 2019

You were the best lawyer in the courtroom.

~ Federal Prosecutor, 2008, following complex, multi-defendant criminal trial

Mr. Goldstein, I practice federal criminal defense in Oklahoma City. Last week I had the pleasure of watching you in action...I saw some of your cross examination on Thursday and your closing argument on Friday. You were absolutely phenomenal and I was very impressed with your trial skills. You are one hell of a trial lawyer!

~ Federal criminal defense attorney (in unsolicited email), February 2015

I have spent a career watching and interacting with attorneys - as the elected district attorney, as a line prosecutor and defense attorney - you are one of a handful of the best lawyers I have ever seen in the courtroom.

~ Father of client, 2001 (Former elected district attorney, current defense attorney)

I was astonished to learn he had graduated from law school only in 1995. I would have attributed another fifteen years experience to his resume.
