The Port of Los Angeles, the Port of Long Beach and the Port of San Diego have all been targeted for special scrutiny by law enforcement agencies in recent years. Several years ago, a multi-agency task force was formed with the expressed intent of deterring smuggling and other crimes along the borders of the U.S., including at ports. Aggressive law enforcement tactics have resulted in many arrests on charges of smuggling.
The Law Offices of Daniel R. Perlman represents U.S. citizens as well as citizens of other countries who have been charged with smuggling crimes at any of these ports in Southern California.
