Whether you or your business have been designated a Specifically Designated National (SDN); Specially Designated Narcotics Trafficker (SDNT) or Specially Designated Narcotics Trafficker Kingpin (SDNTK), you owe it to yourself to call Mr. Abreu for a Free and Confidential consultation. 

To date, Mr. Abreu has successfully removed eight (8) individuals and nine (9) companies that were named Specially Designated Narcotics Trafficker Kingpins by the United States Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).

OFAC list removal is a lengthy and complicated process that requires a lawyer who has experience working with the United States Treasury Department and who understands the process. The removal process may take anywhere from six months to over two (2) years to accomplish. You need to hire a lawyer with proven results.

Our most recent removal was for Hector Castaño Gil, the brother of the late Carlos Castaño, the founder of the United Self  Defense Forces of Colombia (AUC) a Colombian paramilitary and drug trafficking group. Below is the letter we received from the Treasury Department removing Mr. Castaño Gil's designation as a Specially Designated Narcotics Trafficker Kingpin (SDNTK).

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.

If you or a loved one is facing extradition to the United States or within the United States, please call Extradition Lawyer Robert E. Abreu, Esq. today for a Free and Confidential consultation.
