In addition, Mr. Abreu has handled extradition cases within the territorial limits of the United States. Time is of the essence in these types of cases, as typically you have to decide at your first appearance hearing whether or not you're going to challenge extradition. A formal challenge of the extradition process within the United States requires the government to produce authenticated and certified documents that support the extradition. Oftentimes, documents are not available or not produced on a timely basis, thereby allowing a valid challenge to the extradition process.
