Many Americans often complain about our nation’s legal system. Although it is not always perfect, it is often easy to take for granted when traveling to a foreign country. In the United States, those accused of a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty. But in some countries, it is often in reverse. Japan is not only one of the most popular countries for Americans to travel, it also an international hub for business and trade. But what if you were arrested or accused a drug crime or white-collar crime in Japan? The first important step is to seek representation from a high-end international criminal defense attorney.
There are many similarities between the United States and Japan. Both countries have democratically elected governments. American culture is also very popular in Japan. It is not unusual to see many American restaurants, brands and businesses in the Far East. But the laws governing the people are not always the same–especially when it comes to criminal law.
Criminal defense in Japan is not cheap. For example, if you are arrested for assault, it is possible to avoid prosecution. However, you must pay a fine the equivalent of $10,000 U.S. dollars or 1 million Japanese yen. It is vital to have an experienced team of high-end international criminal defense attorneys on your side. The legal team at Okabe & Haushalter is committed to providing aggressive and comprehensive international legal representation. Whether you are an American charged with a crime overseas or a foreign national charged with a crime in the United States, their team of legal professionals can help.
