International Criminal Defense

International criminal defense encompasses all aspects of criminal law in the international arena. Often foreign jurisdictions investigate and charge United States citizens in their respective countries or their own nationals are charged in the United States. At the Law Offices of Rene A. Sotorrio, P.A., we have experience in all aspects of this practice in the United States and abroad, including:

  • Violent crimes — Including armed robbery, firearm offenses and homicide
  • Money laundering — Transferring illicitly obtained funds through legitimate channels in an effort to disguise the original source
  • White collar crimes — Including bank fraud, official corruption and racketeering
  • International tax fraud — The deliberate evasion of tax law, including failure to file taxes
  • Drug and narcotics violations — Including possession, trafficking and pharmaceutical drug violations
  • International multi-national criminal investigations
  • Extradition defense

Obtain experienced legal counsel

Running into trouble with the law while abroad can be a nightmare. While your rights as an American citizen are clearly defined, you may find yourself susceptible to the laws of the local area. This could also mean receiving legal counsel that does not have your best interests in mind. If you have been charged with a crime outside of the country, do not take any chances. The Law Offices of Rene A. Sotorrio, P.A. is experienced in procuring and working with skilled and ethical foreign counsel and organizing international criminal defense teams to protect its clients' interests at home and abroad.
