Extortion, conspiracy and embezzlement are some of the offenses that form the category of federal white collar crimes. Extortion can be either a state or federal crime and is related most often to public corruption and organized crime. As a federal crime, the three specific types of extortion include:

  • Blackmail
  • Using the postal system to deliver a communication with the intent of committing extortion or blackmail
  • Receiving, concealing, disposing of or possessing the proceeds of extortion

Our firm is well versed in all types of federal crime and regularly works with federal prosecutors and judges. Due to the enormous resources available to the prosecutors who are charging you, it is very important that you retain a bold and hard-hitting legal firm such as ours to fight the tactics they may use against you.
