Penalty Defense & Mitigation
We prepare and file petitions for mitigation of penalties and liquidated damages for every imaginable violation including Importation Contrary to law (§ 1595a), Fraud and Negligence (§ 1592), Counterfeit (§ 1526), Wood Packaging Material (WPM), Export (EAR) Violations, Failure to Redeliver, Failure to Manifest (§ 1436), False Presentation of Documents (§ 1433), Drug Paraphernalia (§ 863), Passenger Failure to Declare (§ 1497), and more.
We also submit offers in compromise for unpaid AD/CVD duties, and in other situations.
Tariff classification, valuation, country of origin, USMCA, FTAs can be very hard to understand. Changes in regulations, enforcement priorities, supply chain disruptions, increased penalties, liquidated damage claims, seizures, requests for information, and notices of action can make your head spin.
No one can afford to ignore customs and trade compliance. If you are business facing these uncertainties you need an experienced customs and trade law firm as your advocate and advisor to avoid costly mistakes.
Jason and his firm was the most responsive Attorney I’ve dealt with , very friendly and very thorough in explaining things . I highly recommend.
Jason was honest from the very beginning and explained the whole process clearly and professionally. He was always prompt in answering calls or emails. We are happy with the results and glad we used his services. He offers a great service. Thank you!
Great Lakes Customs Law was very professional and supportive in my case, they managed to get back my money and I always received prompt attention, Thanks to Mr. Jason
As a fellow attorney (but not in customs law), I found Jason to be professional, prompt, and a great communicator. He resolved our customs case with Detroit CBP very quickly, with very little on our end to do. I think it is very important to hire an attorney with relationships with the people at the governmental agencies you are dealing with (because relationships matter), and Jason has extensive experience on that front. An excellent job!
Highly recommended. Very satisfied with the service and reasonable fee. Jason is very responsive and knowledgeable in what he is doing. He always keep me in the progress and update. Great experience from Houston customer.
