Case Details

United States of America V. Mr. AB

Nov 1, 2010

In this extradition case, the United States sought an extradition order from the Ontario courts directing that the respondents be surrendered to the authorities for their conduct in the United States. Mr. Shekter first obtained unprecedented orders against the Canadian Department of Justice requiring the disclosure of files from the Attorney General of Canada, the Attorney General of Ontario and the Toronto Police Service. When the orders were not fully complied with, Justice Backhouse of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice dismissed the proceedings. The Attorney General of Canada appealed that decision. In an almost unprecedented ruling, the Ontario Court of Appeal refused to hear the government’s appeal on the basis that the conduct of the government was highly inappropriate and constituted and abuse of process of the court. The appeal was, therefore dismissed outright. The proceedings ended there.

After being severely injured by a car, I had to choose a lawyer to represent me. Personal, expert help was important to me and so I decided against a big firm. Based on strong recommendations, I chose Alden Dychtenberg.

Alden provided outstanding ongoing customer service throughout the process and would respond to emails and calls within a few hours on a 24/7 basis. Whenever a decision had to be made, I was provided with the pros and cons of each option so that I could make educated decisions and be actively involved in my case.

I received great moral support, advice and help from the whole team who all knew my case inside out. Even after resolving the case through mediation, Alden and his staff have stayed in touch and continue to help me to this day.

Alden's actions are guided by his belief that "the only good outcome is a happy customer".  Having worked with him and his team for over four years, I can say that I am extremely happy with having chosen Alden Dychtenberg.
