Houston Money Laundering Defense Lawyer

Trusted, Experienced Counsel For Complex Financial Charges

I'm R. Todd Bennett, and for more than two decades, I have served the legal needs of those in Houston and across Texas. I previously worked as an Assistant District Attorney in Harris County, which gave me insight into prosecutorial tactics and the strategies that prosecutors use when pursuing charges of money laundering and related offenses.

Since that time, I have fought to defend clients facing high-stakes criminal cases and have devoted my practice 100 percent to the field of criminal law. I have been granted an AV Preeminent* peer-review rating through Martindale-Hubbell (the highest rating) and have been named in the Best Lawyers in America.**

What Leads To Money Laundering Charges?

Money laundering charges typically stem from allegations of:

  • Use of money obtained from illegal activities
  • Unlawful wire transfers
  • Structured transactions (transactions purposefully kept beneath the federal reporting cut-off to avoid reporting the funds)
  • Concealing funds

Due to complicated financial aspects and a web of federal regulations involved in these cases, it is imperative to have an accomplished defense attorney protecting your interests when you are being investigated for or have been charged with money laundering.
