When businesses, individuals, or even crime rings engage in fraud, they need to be held accountable for their actions. Civil racketeering lawsuits, more commonly known as RICO (Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organizations) lawsuits allow plaintiffs to sue for damages when litigants believe they have been defrauded.

If you find yourself in the midst of questionable financial activity, you have the right to seek full and just compensation for the damages you have suffered. The stakes could be higher than you can imagine. In order to protect your career interests, finances, and in some cases your reputation, it is important you contact a Houston civil racketeering lawyer immediately. Under state and federal RICO laws, you may be entitled to three times your losses, punitive damages, and even reimbursement for attorney’s fees. Many cases fall under RICO (Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organizations) including:

  • Larceny, Embezzlement, and Theft
  • Violent Crimes in aid of Racketeering
  • Bribery and Other Financial Crimes
  • Theft or Labor or Services
  • Mail and Wire Fraud
  • Extortion
  • Health Care Fraud
  • Investment Scams
  • Selling and Receiving Stolen Property
