Customs - Export / Import
Import / Export
U.S. Customs and Border Protection enforces trade-related laws and regulations overseen by dozens of federal and state agencies. Such includes import / export issues at the Port of Los Angeles, Port of Long Beach and LAX. Attorney Michael Devereux vast experience as a general counsel for many corporations has helped clients navigate these complex, interlocking requirements allow us to help you identify and understand those import / export issues applicable to your business, develop and implement compliance plans and processes, and avoid shipment delays, penalties, and other problems.
The movement of cargo into, out of, and within the U.S. is subject to domestic and international laws, including the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act and the Warsaw Convention, and associated regulatory requirements. Cargo transport may also be affected by laws, regulations, programs, and policies concerning supply chain security, occupational and transportation safety, and spoiled, lost, and damaged goods. Shippers, carriers, customs brokers, warehouses, freight forwarders, non-vessel-operating common carriers, third-party logistics providers, and others all need to be aware of these requirements.
Michael Devereux is experienced attorney with imports / exports coming from Asia to South America that stopped in the Port of Los Angeles. On one occasion, US Customs in Los Angeles seized the shipment although neither the port of origin or destination was in the United States. Attorney Michael Devereux was able to resolve the issue within days.
One of The Most Ethical Lawyers I’ve Ever Known...
Let me start by saying I am extremely pleased by Mr. Devereux's work, professionalism, and devotion to his clients. He was very honest and never made any false promises about the outcome of my case nor did he try to seek compensation further than our initial contract. I initially consulted and even hired other experienced attorneys but nothing got accomplished. Mr. Devereux worked on my case for over six months and was able to get my case dismissed which I was told by previous attorneys was impossible. My husband and I are forever grateful for his great work!
Brillant & Informative Attorney
Michael came to us when we were in crisis and had just lost 500k in an internet wire fraud hack job by criminals. He lightened us up with good information and follows up. Just a really nice good guy and easy to talk too.
Internet Extortion Case
When I thought my case was impossible, Michael came to the rescue. His knowledge of internet forensics is beyond impressive. I cannot thank him and his team enough for all of their hard work.
Mr. Devereux and his firm did an outstanding job with understanding and handling my case. From the initial consultation on the phone, Mr. Devereux put me at ease that the situation could be taken care of. Let me just say that I'm not an educated man, but I do know how to treat people, and I know when someone has a good heart. I would like to personally thank Mr. Devereux for communicating with me constantly during the process, and for responding to my emails and/or phone calls in a very timely fashion. Thank you!!!!
Five Stars Isn't Enough...
When I had the good fortune to be represented by Mr. Devereux I was reminded that God does indeed work through others. I owe this man my life, literally. Everyone told me my case was hopeless, that I was a fool to take this to trial and this man had faith in me and his ability to give me a fair trial and ultimately an astounding new belief in humanity. Watching him in action was like watching a surgeon save a life.I believed he truly cared about me and my case. I can't thank him enough. Thank you Mr. Devereux!!
Super Lawyer beat the pants off the Prosecutor & the Judge-WINS unanimously in less than 40 minutes of Jury deliberation.
YES, I highly recommend Michael as a Super Lawyer. Michael took my case to the full jury trial because the issue was politically sensitive and he beat the pants off the Prosecutor. The prosecutor commented such and shook his hand at the end. Michael is a fact driven lawyer. He fights to WIN. Although the experience is troubling for anyone to have to go to court, Michael takes the burden away & off the client.
