Mr. Abbell was instrumental in researching and assisting in the drafting of our pleadings on the international drug treaty issues in the religious freedom case we won in the U.S.
Supreme Court, Gonzales v. O Centro Espirita Beneficente Uniao Do Vegetal, 546 U.S.
418 (2006). His help was invaluable.

Mr. Abbell knows more about extradition, obtaining foreign evidence, and related topics than anyone I have ever met. He has worked with me over the years as a consultant, and
has always been incisive, thorough, and responsive. He is an essential resource for any
case with a criminal law related foreign dimension.

Mr. Abbell is one of the most knowledgeable individuals on the subject of Extradition Law in the world. His work on behalf of my firm in its challenge to the Mexican
Extradition request of our client, was nothing short of spectacular. As a result of our joint efforts, the Mexican government's request for extradition was dismissed pursuant to the filing of a motion to dismiss that set forth multiple reasons for the denial of extradition. Our presentation, primarily through the knowledge and hard work of Mr. Abbell, was so
strong that it was not opposed by the United States.

In foreign extradition cases, and other criminal cases having foreign aspects, the first and last move is to consult Mr. Abbell. He provides the most satisfying professional collabor- ation you could ask for. His consummate expertise, unstinting and generous devotion of time, broad knowledge of criminal law and practice, and ability to provide insights and ideas that you could never imagine simply cannot be matched.

Mr. Abbell provided invaluable assistance to me in obtaining the denial by an extradition magistrate in the Southern District of Florida of the request for the extradition of one of my clients. Without Mr. Abbell’s assistance and his specialized and unique knowledge of United States extradition law, I would not have been able to obtain such a successful
result. In my 28 years of practice as a criminal defense lawyer, I have never encountered such a knowledgeable, professional and courteous expert consultant.

I am an attorney with 42 years experience in state and federal courts throughout the United States. Some time ago I contacted Mr. Abbell to help me solve a problem regarding international extradition. I got his name through the books he has published—we had not met before. Although it was a relatively "small" case in the scheme of things, Mr. Abbell responded promptly and was very helpful. I got the treatment one might expect for a "big shot" high paying client--lots of personal attention. I recall he even called me once during a holiday to make sure I had everything I needed. His advice was timely, well-informed, and, as a practical matter, very useful. I got the feeling that he had applied 100% of his considerable skills and his personal attention to assisting me.
