New Mexico White Collar Crimes

New Mexico White Collar Crimes

Being charged with a white collar crime can be extremely difficult to deal with, especially since these cases tend to involve extensive litigation. New Mexico Legal Group assists people dealing with state and federal investigations related to white collar crimes. We have a proven track record of successfully resolving cases involving blackmail, extortion, money laundering, and other white collar crimes. We possess the competent legal staff and resources needed to devote the significant amount of time needed to litigate complex white collar crime cases.

Money Laundering

Money laundering involves concealing the origin of money obtained through illegal means. An effective way to defend against money laundering charges is by showing that the accused did not knowingly engage in any financial transactions with the intent to conceal the source of the money. Our legal team undergoes a comprehensive review of the case to ensure our clients get positive results in criminal or civil money laundering cases.


Extortion is the criminal act of getting money, property or services through illegal means. Money, property and other types of items are received through force or threats. The severity of punishment associated with an extortion conviction depends on the severity of the acts committed and the value of the money or services involved. The types of threats associated with extortion are:

  • Threatening to physically harm someone
  • Threatening to damage a person’s property
  • Threatening to ruin a person’s reputation


Blackmail is demanding money or services by threatening to expose information about a person that could potentially cause great harm on a social or financial level. Unlike extortion, blackmail usually doesn’t involve physical force or threats of physical force. The information that is threatened to be exposed is usually true. Blackmail is normally charged as a felony offense and could lead to more than one year of imprisonment upon conviction.
