What is Extradition?

Any individual who has been arrested or charged with a crime that was committed in a state outside of the state in which they live and transferred to another state. If you live in California and are facing extradition, you need a team of qualified extradition lawyers on your side to avoid the costly ruin of your reputation, loss of your job and lost wages. The simple truth is that you cannot resolve an expedition matter on your own. At Bay Area Criminal Lawyers, PC, we have the experience and skills to resolve your expedition and your criminal law case.

This is a process that can be traumatic and life-changing for the individual involved. No one wants to be taken away from where they live, away from family, their job and the life they know. Our skilled San Francisco based extradition attorneys work hard to keep you in California and fight the charges against you here, so that you are not uprooted from your life.

What can a skilled extradition attorney do to protect you? These types of cases are often complex; it could very well be that your case can be dismissed or resolved with the right defense arguments. At Bay Area Criminal Lawyers, PC, we know that it is often possible to work out a resolution by negotiating with the state in which the crime was committed in. Documents filed by the prosecution could be invalid, or proof of identity procedures that are necessary for extradition could be vague. When you need a team of aggressive and experienced extradition lawyers on your side, we have the necessary skills to obtain the best possible outcome for you.

A capable extradition lawyer will contact the prosecutor responsible for handling your case, and start negotiations in order to prevent you from having to return to another state. Whether you committed the crime in California or another state, we will negotiate to eliminate or reduce bail for you if you agree to return to the state in which the crime was committed. Our primary goal is to keep you out of jail, and to protect your reputation while you wait to have your fair day in court.
