Home / Practice areas / General Criminal Defense

Facing a criminal prosecution in Colombia can be a complete nightmare for a foreign defendant. Police and prosecutors often want to make an example of foreign defendants for internal and public relations purposes. Judges may want to be less flexible during the sentencing phase for the same reasons. Being arrested and incarcerated in a foreign country where you are not even fluent in the local language can create additional challenges.

But that’s where we come in. Our Criminal Defense Practice Group will fight to ensure that you receive the best legal defense possible even as we ensure that the police, prosecutor and the entire local criminal justice system respects your rights.
