Nevada Extortion Defense Attorneys
Extortion involves the acquisition of money, goods or services through the use of intimidation or coercion. Extortion crimes include blackmail, bribery and ransom.
Extortion is a felony offense. Punishment for an extortion conviction can include steep fines, years in prison and restitution to the victim. In pursuing an extortion conviction, prosecutors must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you knowingly and willfully committed extortion and were not simply aggressively negotiating.
Our attorneys have extensive experience handling extortion defense cases in state and federal courts. Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may present evidence from experts, physical evidence and witness testimony that support your case. We will do everything in our power to help you avoid the consequences of a conviction.
