"International crimes" include crimes which are carried out in more than one country, such as drug or arms trafficking, money laundering, smuggling of cultural artifacts or counterfeit goods, and human trafficking; crimes which are committed in “international zones”, such as the high seas and international airspace; and human rights/war crimes, such as crimes against peace, crimes against humanity, and genocide.
These crimes are prohibited by international treaties and/or local criminal laws and are investigated by national law enforcement agencies, such as the U.S. Department of State Office of Global Criminal Justice, as well as special international tribunals, such as the United Nations and the International Criminal Court at The Hague in Switzerland.
Given the high stakes involved, it is imperative that individuals facing international criminal charges choose an attorney with the knowledge and experience necessary to defend such a case. I have chosen to focus my practice on White Collar Crimes, including international criminal matters. Over the last 40 years, I have earned a successful track record in high stakes white collar matters and have argued before the United States Supreme Court as well as other federal courts throughout the country. I fight hard to enforce the rights of my clients, and I believe in the integrity of that fight.
If you have questions or concerns about an international criminal matter, I invite you to contact me directly to discuss it at (800) 780-2889 or Patrick@MullinDefense.com. You will discuss your concerns with me personally—never an associate or a paralegal. In addition, you should know that your contact with me, and with my firm, is privileged under the law, regardless of whether or not you decide to retain my firm to represent you.
