Blackmail is a form of extortion. A blackmailer threatens to release damaging information about an individual, family or business, unless the victim meets the blackmailer's demand. Blackmailers usually demand payment of money to avoid release of damaging information.
Representing Victims Of Blackmail And The Accused
Bederow Miller LLP has successfully represented both victims and alleged perpetrators of blackmail. If you have been contacted by a blackmailer who was making demands, it is critical to consult qualified counsel and carefully navigate through the situation. We have successfully represented a New York Times best-selling author and an attorney who were both subjected to blackmail.
Our law firm frequently defends people who have been accused of blackmail. In many of our past cases, charges were either not filed against our clients or their cases were dismissed.
