Criminal Defence In Colombia And Mexico
Thanks to their long experience and presence on the ground, ILA’s lawyers are experts in criminal defence in both Colombia and Mexico.
To date, the international law firm’s criminal lawyers have numerous successful Colombian and Mexican criminal defence cases to their credit.
Criminal defence in Colombia
It is a well-known fact that the president of our law firm, lawyer Alexandro Maria Tirelli, in addition to having been an adjunct professor of comparative criminal law at the Arboleda University in Bogotá, Colombia, has handled very important extradition cases to and from that country, as well as coordinated the criminal defence of individuals involved in very delicate trials before the Colombian judicial authorities, in collaboration with the best of that country’s national lawyers.
It goes without saying that the greatest efforts were concentrated on major trials against international drug trafficking and the world’s most notorious criminal associations, including mafia-type ones.
Many subjects known to the press and Interpol have made it possible to convey the name of lawyer Tirelli and our law firm from one side of the Atlantic Ocean to the other, and countless are the interviews that have honoured the immense commitment of the lawyers of our team, in the strenuous and compelling defence of impossible judicial positions, but which have often led to incredible and satisfying results, as well as to the freedom and repatriation of the convicted and accused who have relied on our advocacy.
International Lawyers Associates sees its historical roots in the city of Medellin and the Department of Antioquia. But many defences have been organised before courts in the so-called ‘Valle’, particularly in the city of Cali.
The law firm of criminal lawyers experienced in Colombian criminal defence often focuses on white-collar defence, money laundering issues and cases related to international child abduction as well as violations of the Hague treaty. Our law firm has a strong presence and roots in the capital Bogotá and the coastal city of Barranquilla. Likewise in Santa Marta, Bucaramanga. Pereira, Valledupar, Manizales, Montería, Neiva, Villavicencio, Ibagué, Armenia and Quindio and Buenaventura. Significant socio-political frictions with neighbouring Venezuela led to the important decision by International Lawyers Associates to structure an intensive collaboration also in the border city of Cucuta and the emerald department of Meta.
Our lawyers also participated in drafting, handling and arguing sensitive cases before international courts, including the Corte Interamericana de Derechos Humanos.
Criminal Defence in Mexico
The phenomenon of drug trafficking and massive immigration from this wonderful and tormented country, as well as the flight of many Italian and European fugitives to the most diverse areas of Mexico, have caused our firm to equip itself with a robust network of connections and collaborations in numerous cities of the Federal State.
ILA’s team of criminal lawyers is experienced in criminal defence in Mexico, with offices and collaborations in the main areas of the State.
Famous are the interviews of lawyer Alexandro Maria Tirelli with Mexican television stations, which have invited him on several occasions as an international observer and expert in extradition and criminal law. The rounds of opinions and interventions offered on the extradition and escape of the head of the Sinaloa Cartel, Don Joaquin Guzman Loera, known as the Chapo, come to mind. But also the participation in sensitive court cases, which have involved the arraignment of major industrialists and entrepreneurs. Let us not forget that Mexico is one of the world’s fastest growing economies.
The subjects handled by the firm are the most varied and range from so-called prison law to white collar law and the study of major issues before the most important supra-national courts of the American continent and human rights.
International Lawyers is present in Mexico City, Veracruz, Puebla, but also in lower California, particularly in Tijuana. Our lawyers have been involved in several high profile cases in the Yucatan Peninsula, Merida and Cancun.
In any case, the law firm is now able to provide assistance and help in setting up an adequate defence team anywhere in the immense Central American country. In particular in Guadalajara, in the state of Chiapas, in Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco.
