White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyers
Extortion is the act of using threats to obtain money or property from a person. A threat in the case of extortion would not include immediate or impending physical harm (as in robbery). If you have been accused of extortion, you may face years of imprisonment in a state prison.
The only thing you can do to protect yourself – if you are facing extortion charges – is consult an accomplished white collar defense lawyer in your area. In working with a capable lawyer, you will have the protection of a legal professional who knows your rights and can make sure they are not violated in any way. If you try to defend yourself or work with an inexperienced lawyer, you will most likely end up losing your case – even if you are innocent. It all boils down to proving innocence, violated rights, or the lack of evidence on the part of the prosecution.
