California Customs Attorneys

Stein Shostak Shostak Pollack & O'Hara, LLP, is a worldwide legal practice entering its ninth decade of helping clients resolve or litigate complex customs and international trade law problems. Customs laws that exist today have been around longer. Although, the way goods are transported has changed, the laws governing importing and exporting have their origin in the Second Act of Congress passed in 1790.

Los Angeles Customs Lawyers

Our clients understand that short-term legal remedies will help them over the long haul. We are not opposed to sharing the risks on behalf of our clients. They need help to "level the playing field" against powerful government bureaucracies in the United States and throughout the world. Peer attorneys who are not equipped to handle the challenges often refer clients to our firm.

Our attorneys have not only taken on risky cases, but they have also taken on key legal matters where decisions changed the landscape of this particular area of the law. Decisions in trials held in 1999 and 2000 have changed how importers and exporters do business. The firm has obtained key rulings that altered record keeping procedures, customs' audits, enforcing subpoenas, and expanded the jurisdiction of the U.S. Court of International Trade.
