Las Vegas Extortion Attorney

Professional Defense for White Collar Crimes

Extortion is a category B felony that carries penalties of 1 to 10 years in prison, or up to $10,000 in fines, or both, plus restitution. Charges can be brought in either state or federal court. Extortion involves wrongfully threatening another to obtain something of value. The threat does not have to be carried out for extortion to have been committed. It is sufficient that: a threat was made; there was intention to purposefully and willfully carry it out; and the victim reasonably believed that the threat was real. Extortion is considered a white collar crime.

If you are under investigation or have already been charged with extortion, you will need an aggressive legal defense from an experienced Las Vegas criminal defense lawyer. Attorney Philip Brown and his law partner are both former Chief Prosecutors. Our lead attorneys are both are named among the Top 100 Lawyers by American Society for Legal Advocates. We are accredited with the Better Business Bureau and have an A+ Rating. We use aggressive tactics and creative strategies in our successful criminal defense practice.

Las Vegas Extortion Lawyer: Creative Defense Strategies

Our defense strategy for your case will depend on your particular circumstances. One common defense is no intent. To have a case against you, the prosecution must prove that you intentionally threatened someone to obtain something of value. Another defense is consent. If it can be shown that the so-called victim gave consent, then your case should be dismissed. If it can be shown that you were involved in a legitimate offer, mistaken for extortion, the charges should be dismissed. If there is a lack of evidence, or false accusations have been made against you, your case should be dismissed.
