Serious Criminal Charges Require A Serious Attorney
Many common criminal charges can be satisfactorily defended by most lawyers – even those who don’t normally practice criminal defense. But for serious, complex and high-stakes criminal charges, you need an attorney with the skills and experience necessary to meet challenging cases head-on.
At Housh Law Offices, PLLC, we don’t shy away from a challenge. Our criminal defense practice is focused primarily on complex and difficult cases like those discussed below.
RICO Cases In Federal Court
Ever since Congress passed the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) in 1978, it has become far easier for prosecutors to indict and convict individuals suspected of leading criminal organizations. RICO has long been controversial, in part, because of the power it gives to prosecutors.
Most people associate RICO cases with the Mafia, but the law reaches much further than that. RICO law has been used in cases involving organizations that include Major League Baseball and even the Catholic Church.
Needless to say, RICO cases are often incredibly complex. Few attorneys have the knowledge, experience and tenacity required to defend clients against federal RICO charges. But our firm’s founding partner, Frank Housh, is one of those attorneys.
Early in his career, Attorney Housh served as a felony trial prosecutor for six years. He understands how prosecutors build cases, and this informs his criminal defense practice. Mr. Housh has also served as trial counsel for one of New York’s biggest insurance companies. He understands how large organizations operate, which aids in his practice defending against racketeering and other organized crime charges.
Murder Cases In State And Federal Court
Homicide cases also tend to be very complex legally and logistically. High-profile cases are especially at risk of being tainted by media attention and other non-criminal factors. With his decades of practice and diverse legal experience, attorney Frank Housh is uniquely suited to defend clients against the most serious criminal charges, including murder.
