RICO Defense Lawyer

A Tough, Strategic Approach to Defending Racketeering Charges

The federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act was enacted to combat organized crime. Federal prosecutors, however, increasingly use RICO well beyond its intended scope. Public figures, CEOs and other prominent individuals are increasingly prosecuted on RICO charges. Federal racketeering charges are exceptionally broad, and can bring on significant penalties. If you are under investigation or have been charged with violating the terms of the RICO act, you need a lawyer who understands how to employ every potential defense. Atlanta RICO defense attorney Jerome “Jerry” Froelich Jr. defends clients across Georgia, the Southeast and the United States against RICO charges and other white collar crimes.

Extensive Experience in High-Profile RICO Cases

Jerry’s criminal defense experience spans more than three decades. In this time he has defended clients in a number of RICO cases. One of his most high-profile cases involved the 2006 trial of former Atlanta Mayor Bill Campbell. Mayor Campbell faced numerous RICO and bribery charges in federal court. Through Jerry’s efforts, Mayor Campbell was acquitted of RICO and bribery charges.

In the infamous “Gold Club” RICO case in Atlanta, Georgia, Jerry convinced the United States Attorney to dismiss all charges against his client, even after an indictment had been returned by a grand jury. In sum, Jerry has achieved a number of successful outcomes for clients facing these allegations.

Given the complexity of these allegations, it is important to retain Jerry’s services as early in the proceedings as possible. If you contact Jerry before you are indicted, he may be able to argue to the Department of Justice (DOJ) against an indictment. Even if you have been indicted, or if an indictment is likely based on the facts, you can count on Jerry to present a detail-oriented, vigorous defense to the charges.
