RACKETEERING AND CONSPIRACY (RICO)
The federal government vigorously prosecutes organized crime, and even criminal conduct not normally seen as “organized” under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) sentencing-enhancing statute. When people think of RICO violations and federal conspiracy charges, they most often think of the “mob” or the Mafia. Historically, that would have been a fair assumption, but today RICO charges are as likely to be levied against a “legitimate” corporation or health care facility/office and its senior management in an effort to pursue what the government sees as patterns of criminal activity.
Attorney James W. Burdick of Burdick Law, P.C. is an experienced criminal defense lawyer who has great skill in defending a wide variety of people against racketeering and conspiracy charges. His representation is available throughout the State of Michigan and the United States, and he offers the finest, most dedicated and most relentless legal criminal defense against RICO violations and federal conspiracy charges originating from any of the following statutorily specified unlawful activities:
- Wire, Mail, or Securities Fraud

- Counterfeiting Materials or Currency
- Interference with Commerce
- Health Care Fraud: Prescription Medical Fraud (Overprescribing, Overutilization, Overbilling), Medicare Fraud (Federal), Medicaid Fraud (State), Illegal Referrals (Kickbacks)

If you are accused or suspected of a racketeering violation or any federal conspiracy charge — or even suspect you might be — you should immediately contact an attorney who is experienced in handling federal criminal cases. The rules of procedure and timelines are different in federal cases and require an attorney who is intimately familiar with how to prepare and present a criminal defense in federal court.
In regard to RICO violations, it’s also important to work with a criminal defense lawyer who understands federal sentencing guidelines and how to approach prosecutors should it be in your best interests to turn state’s evidence.
