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?

Skokie Extradition Lawyer

Extradition is a term that often conjures up images of high-profile international criminal cases, intricate legal processes, and complex diplomatic negotiations. In essence, extradition is a procedure by which one country surrenders an individual to another for prosecution or punishment. The United States, with its robust legal system, has extradition treaties with over 100 countries worldwide, each outlining specific requirements for offenses that can trigger extradition, evidence required, and procedures for processing the request. Our Skokie extradition lawyer at the Law Offices of Jonathan Minkus is here to provide steadfast representation. Call to review your options.

Understanding Extradition

Extradition plays a critical role in the legal process for those accused of committing a crime outside the United States. It involves numerous steps, beginning with a formal extradition request from the foreign country to the U.S. Department of State. This request is meticulously evaluated by the Department of State and the Department of Justice to ensure it meets the specific requirements of the applicable treaty and U.S. legal standards for extradition.

If the request is approved, the case proceeds to a federal court hearing, where the defendant has the right to contest the extradition. The individual can challenge the extradition on several grounds, such as lack of sufficient evidence, improper support for the request, or that the offenses charged are not covered by the treaty.

Defending Your Rights

Certain exceptions to extradition can vary by country, and it’s essential to review the specific treaty applicable in each case. Common defenses in extradition cases include challenging the sufficiency of evidence and claiming a lack of due process in the requesting country. These defenses hinge on factors like the nature of the accusation, the requesting country, and the specific terms of the extradition treaty.

With a seasoned extradition attorney like Jonathan Minkus, you can rest assured that your case will be scrutinized from every angle, ensuring all possible defenses are explored and presented effectively.
