Extortion Your Future is Too Important to Risk

Tampa Extortion Attorney

Overview of Extortion Charges in Florida

Under federal law, there are many acts of white collar crime that are vigorously prosecuted by federal authorities. One of these criminal acts is the crime of extortion which involves unlawfully obtaining money, goods or property through threat, intimidation and pressure. This coercive act, also referred to as blackmail or exaction, is a very serious matter.

Federal law allows for severe penalties including major fines along with a potential three year prison term. If you are being investigated for extortion or if you have been arrested and charged with extortion, it is very important that you contact a knowledgeable Tampa federal defense lawyer as soon as you can. The sooner you involve the proven and effective law firm of Taracks & Associates, the sooner our aggressive attorney may be able to assist you in pursuing the most favorable possible outcome in your case.

Extortion charges commonly result as part of a protection scheme where a person will promise not to cause harm or damage in exchange for money. This may be part of a larger RICO case involving organized crime. Exaction is similar to extortion except in the case of exaction the threat involves the threat of inflicting physical harm. These cases are seldom clear cut and almost always involve very different versions of events.

An allegation of extortion can result from a misunderstanding or from simple confusion. It is important to have an attorney by your side that understands these matters and can work with federal prosecutors to pursue a dismissal or reduced charges. Our skilled Tampa criminal lawyer is always prepared to tenaciously defend our clients in court if necessary.
