Defending International Cases with Care

One of the primary concerns in many international criminal cases has to do with international extradition. For example, when a U.S. citizen has been arrested and is being detained in a foreign country, the defendant's attorney may want to negotiate to have the individual extradited and returned to the United States.

This becomes especially important when the defendant is being held in a country where the criminal justice system and prisons are of a quality and level of integrity far below what is available in the U.S. Similarly, when the defendant has been convicted, the attorney may be able to negotiate for a prisoner transfer so that the individual can serve the sentence in a safer environment, closer to family in the United States.
