Organized Crime and Corruption

Public Corruption

Public corruption charges can be brought against officials whether the person is employed at the municipal, county, state or federal government level.  Public officials, politicians, and their clients, including business executives, risk of federal investigation as a result of their public duties and positions of trust.  Therefore, common investigations and charges of public officials include bribery and public corruption crimes. These offenses may be investigated or filed as federal or state charges.Nicole Knox has successfully represented clients exposed to these charges in various phases of the federal criminal justice process.Federal prosecutors pursue cases of public corruption which are investigated by the FBI in an aggressive manner in order to show the public that government officials,, more than any others, should be severely punished when violating the law.  They often become over zealous and accuse individuals who were on the periphery in any public corruption case.  This allows the government to accuse public officials regardless of whether the official is involved at a minor or major level.Local, state, and federal law enforcement have the authority and jurisdiction to investigate public corruption.  Also, prosecutors may pursue related charges of fraud, theft of government funds or bribery, money laundering, or tax evasion.

Organized Crime

Charges of organized crime can be multifaceted and extraordinarily challenging to defend. Criminal organizations work much the same way that legal companies work. They operate on various levels of authority and with strategic distribution of responsibilities. Nicole Knox recognizes the importance of adapting her strategies according to the facts of each case. In every criminal defense matter, the ultimate goal is to win the best attainable outcome for each client.

Engaging in organized criminal activity is the charge that prosecutors bring to charge a group working together to commit a criminal offense. For instance, if several people conspire to steal something or sell drugs, it could be considered organized criminal activity.

Engaging in organized crime is automatically charged as more serious than the charge that would have resulted if the criminal offense been committed by one person rather than a group. These charges should be taken seriously, and you should start building a defense immediately.

    I hired Nicole Knox to defend me against a false "deadly conduct" charge in Denton county. I could not have chosen better attorneys. Nicole and her team really cared about me and my case. She wasn't afraid to fight for justice. We took my case to trial and won a record fast "not guilty" verdict. I'm so thankful they had my back and got a great outcome.

    I am a widow living in Florida and had to have some legal issues handled in Texas. Nicole Knox handled everything for me in a very timely manner. She also was honest enough to refund a good portion of the retainer which was originally asked for because (as she stated ) "she did not have to use it all". How many lawyers do you know that would do that???? None that I have met so far!! She was very prompt to answer any e-mails or phone calls and kept me well informed.
