Chicago Post-Conviction Relief Attorney

Just because you were convicted of a crime doesn’t mean that your conviction must forever haunt employment background checks, stop you from becoming a U.S. citizen or remain a deportation threat.

There is no reason to let a youthful mistake, misunderstanding, past criminal record—or especially a criminal identity theft—be a barrier to future opportunities. Many options of post-conviction relief are available to help you, even after you have served time, finished probation, or paid your fines. Relief is critical for clearing the records of victims of criminal identity theft.

Through post-conviction proceedings, the Law Offices of Jonathan Minkus can attempt to lessen the negative consequences of having been convicted of a crime. Your background may be used against you in rental matters, employment and education opportunities, by Immigration and Naturalization—and even socially.

Why Post-Conviction Relief?

Chicago Extradition Attorney

Extradition is a complex legal procedure that involves surrendering an individual from one country to another for prosecution or punishment. This process, governed by extradition treaties between countries, is often intricate and fraught with legal and diplomatic challenges. The United States, for instance, has such treaties with over 100 countries, each specifying the conditions and offenses that warrant extradition.

At the Law Offices of Jonathan Minkus, we offer a broad range of services in various practice areas, including post-conviction relief, criminal defense services, and international extradition. Our extensive experience in handling diverse cases, such as armed robbery, assault and battery, domestic violence, DUI, fraud, and more, equips us to deal with your unique legal situation effectively. Contact us to discuss your case with our Chicago extradition attorney.

The Intricacies of International Extradition

We work in international extradition cases, a niche area of legal practice that demands a deep understanding of international law and diplomacy. The extradition process typically starts when a foreign country submits a formal request for provisional arrest to the U.S. Department of State. This request is reviewed meticulously against the backdrop of applicable extradition treaties and U.S. legal standards before being forwarded to the Department of Justice.

Once approved, the case proceeds to a federal court hearing where the accused can challenge extradition and present evidence against it. Defending against extradition involves arguing that the request lacks proper support, the offenses charged are not covered by the treaty, or that extradition would violate the individual’s rights under U.S. law.

The Need for Skilled Representation

Given the complex nature of these proceedings, it is crucial to have qualified representation. The best defense strategy in an extradition case hinges on factors like the nature of the accusation, the requesting country, and the terms of the relevant extradition treaty. Common defenses include challenging the sufficiency of evidence and asserting a lack of due process in the requesting country.

With over 30 years of experience in complicated cases involving immigration and extradition matters, Attorney Jonathan Minkus is adept at navigating this labyrinthine process. His experience lies in creative advocacy – crafting novel arguments and defenses to protect your rights and achieve favorable outcomes.

Consequences of Extradition

Extradition can have severe consequences, including the risk of wrongful convictions. There’s also the potential threat of being sent to a foreign country where you might lack access to a fair trial or adequate legal representation. These potential outcomes underscore the significance of having a seasoned extradition attorney by your side.
