Extortion and blackmail are serious federal and state crimes. Under New
York's grand larceny laws, a person commits extortion if he or she
demands money or something of value from another person under the threat
of filing criminal charges, threatening physical harm, or releasing potentially
embarrassing information. The Law Office of Mark A. Bederow, P.C. has
vast experience in this field. As a former Manhattan prosecutor,
Mr. Bederow prosecuted several
larceny by extortion cases. He has also defended numerous clients against extortion
and related charges as a New York
criminal defense lawyer.
Mr. Bederow has extensive experience in representing victims of extortion
plots. He has represented and advised several people who have been placed
in the nerve-racking position of being extorted. These cases are extremely
sensitive and require experienced, calm, organized, and quick-thinking
advocates who understand criminal law as well as the implications that
the release of embarrassing information may have on a person's life.
Mr. Bederow's understanding of the law and forceful, yet discreet
representation has resulted in favorable outcomes for his clients by avoiding
the release of embarrassing and negative publicity for his clients.
