Did Bernie Madoff Have a Good White Collar Crime Lawyer?

In a previous blog post, we told you all about Charles Ponzi and what a Ponzi scheme is. We’re going to continue along the same lines today with another criminal who could have used a good white collar crime lawyer. Although the Ponzi scheme dates back a ways, Bernie Madoff used the same scheme for decades to make money.

Bernie Madoff’s use of the Ponzi scheme is generally considered to be the largest one in history. Having defrauded thousands of investors for billions of dollars, Madoff finally pleaded guilty to 11 different felonies which included wire fraud, money laundering, perjury, securities fraud, mail fraud, and others. He was sentenced to 150 years in prison.

In February of this year, Richard Dreyfuss portrayed Madoff in a television mini-series and Blythe Danner played his wife, Ruth. HBO plans to make a movie about Madoff’s life which is set to star Robert DeNiro as well.
