Florida Lawyers to Successfully Challenge Extradition
We help you understand the legal processes that affect you while dedicating our time and resources to protecting your rights and interests.
The following is a common example of an extradition situation:
If you are arrested in Florida for a crime and fail to appear for a court date, a warrant will be issued. If you are arrested in another state for the warrant, then you may be held in that state until the Florida authorities pick you up and transport you back to the original Florida county to face the criminal extradition charges. Once you are returned to Florida, the warrant will be served upon you, and you may post a bond if a bond was originally set on the case.
Being arrested on an warrant where Florida is trying to extradite can be a frustrating a lengthy process. Whether you have been arrested or know that there is a warrant for your arrest, we step in immediately to determine the strategy for your case. We will consider the options of challenging the extradition or assisting to obtain a bond for your release from custody.
