Law Office of James Budreau  Criminal Law. Federal Trials and Appeals. Complex Civil Litigation.

Vermont, New Hampsire & Maine Federal Practice

The Law Office of James Budreau regularly represents Canadian citizens facing criminal prosecution in the Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine federal courts. In particular, Mr. Budreau's successes in Vermont have gained international attention in United States v. Boucher when he litigated the question of whether the federal government could force an individual to provide the password to their own computer. Initially winning the argument before a federal court, the issue was resolved to his client's advantage when the case went up on appeal to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.

Prior to the Boucher case Mr. Budreau represented the president of a Canadian corporation accused of various allegations including conspiring to launder criminal proceeds through his corporation. After two weeks of trial, which included the cross-examination of over a half dozen cooperating witnesses and federal agents, the jury returned a resounding not guilty verdict.

Representing Canadian citizens, corporations and other foreign nationals, whether in Vermont, New Hampsire or Maine, requires both an expertise in federal law and international prisoner treaty transfers, experience in those jurisdictions and strong relationships with local and Canadian legal experts. The Law Office of James Budreau not only has a proven track record in the courtroom but has established presence in those jurisdictions to facilitate the best possible result for his clients.
