Federal Extortion Lawyers in Boston, Massachusetts

Extortion Charges Carry Serious Penalties

Have you been accused of obtaining money or property to which you were not entitled by threats of violence, intimidation, property damage, harm to a person’s reputation or favorable or unfavorable government action?

At the Yannetti Criminal Defense Law Firm, our extortion defense lawyers have successfully represented clients against a wide array of federal extortion charges. Our firm has the sophisticated experience to help you if you are facing charges such as:

  • Loansharking
  • Blackmail
  • Threats to accuse another person of a crime
  • Threats to expose someone’s private life
  • Cyber extortion
  • Hobbs Act
  • Home or services fraud
  • Kickbacks from public works employees
  • Receiving proceeds of extortion
  • Mailing a threatening letter demanding ransom for the release of a kidnapped person

Depending on the specific details of the allegations against you, such as the amount of money exchanged and whether the threats took place over the phone, email, computer, other wireless communications or if interstate commerce laws were violated, even more serious federal charges could be filed against you.
