Extortion Defense Lawyer in Redondo Beach

South Bay Extortion Attorney Since 1978

If you have been accused of extortion, you must act quickly to protect your rights and your freedom.

Being charged with extortion means the state intends to prove you used threats, intimidation, or force to obtain money or property from another person. Threatening physical harm isn’t required to prove extortion under the law. If the state can prove you threatened to expose a harmful secret or make damaging allegations to extort value from someone, you could be facing severe penalties, including fines, restitution, and imprisonment. 

As a felony offense in California, a conviction can result in up to four years in state prison and fines up to $10,000.

Michael Norris, Inc. has previous experience with fighting extortion charges, so we know how to build the defense needed for the strongest possible outcome. Attorney Michael Norris works tirelessly to investigate the evidence against his clients, including alleged threats or demands that were made. To start, we examine the circumstances of your arrest to ensure that your rights were not violated.

Extortion Defense Strategies

One potential defense in an extortion case is to argue that the alleged victim gave their consent to the demands that were made. In addition, we can challenge the admissibility of any evidence obtained illegally or without a proper search warrant.These maneuvers can significantly weaken the state’s case against you.

Whatever you’re facing, we’ll work tirelessly to protect your rights and your freedom. Our firm has extensive experience taking a results-oriented approach to criminal defense; many of our clients have seen their cases resolve to their advantage well beyond what they thought possible. 

If you have been charged with extortion (or you expect to be charged at any moment), contact us as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more time the state has to build its case. The sooner we begin strengthening your defense, the more likely we’ll be able to resolve your legal troubles without harming your family or reputation. If you’ve already been arrested and charged, it’s especially important that you discuss your legal options with an experienced defense litigator.
