Antivirus pioneer John McAfee has retained Gordon Law Group to lead the defense of his criminal indictments by the Department of Justice in Tennessee and New York.
Mr. McAfee strongly maintains his innocence, and we are prepared to establish that before the federal courts of the United States.
The tax charges against Mr. McAfee represent one of the first criminal tax evasion cases in the United States involving cryptocurrency, and certainly one of the most high-profile cases of this nature. Mr. McAfee’s charges include alleged tax evasion, failure to file tax returns, and securities fraud related to virtual currencies.
Cryptocurrency regulation is a developing area for the IRS and Department of Justice, and this case marks a turning point in the enforcement of cryptocurrency reporting.
We are fully committed to ensuring a fair resolution for our client.
We will be serving as Mr. McAfee’s media contact as the case develops. Inquiries can be sent to [email protected].
We will post updates to the case on this page as they unfold.
