How We Fight Extradition
First, it is important to understand the conditions established in the extradition treaty. The treaty will explain the exact terms, charges and how the extradition will be handled between the countries involved. Our team of international extradition attorneys will thoroughly review the document. Any errors or discrepancies can greatly improve your chances of avoiding extradition. It is important to understand the burden of proof is on the government to correctly identify the suspect. Failure to properly identify the suspect can result in a dismissal of the case.
In many instances, the extradition treaty may also lack a probable cause for the alleged crime committed by the suspect. Unreliable accusations can also result in a dismissal. Even if a suspect is not successful during their extradition hearing, an experienced and knowledgeable international extradition attorney can file a petition with the State Department cancel the extradition due to human rights or political issues.
