About International Extradition

Extradition occurs when one country agrees to cooperate with another by transferring an individual back to his or her country of origin to prosecute them or to implement a sentence that has been imposed following a conviction. It is most often only available when there is a treaty of extradition between the two countries, though extradition may still be possible in the absence of such a treaty in certain cases. International extradition is common in cases where the defendant is accused of drug trafficking, tax evasion, and conspiracy, as well as in cases involving violent crimes against U.S. citizens.

Choose the Right Attorney

When the U.S. government and the government of the country where you now reside are cooperating on your extradition, it may seem that there is nothing you can do to stop it. Fortunately, it may be possible to fight the attempt to extradite you, provided that you take action as early as possible. Extradition defense depends on a solid understanding of the treaty between the two countries and the ability to engage in skilled negotiations with U.S. officials, the U.S. Embassy abroad, and perhaps the foreign government. It is not something that just any criminal defense lawyer can handle.

Attorney Joel DeFabio has handled extradition cases in the past and knows the right strategies that yield results. Our firm can craft an effective defense on your behalf and help protect your rights, freedom, and future.
