The smallest problem with imported products can result in catastrophic consequences for the importer. A government that broadly construes the import laws is a powerful bureaucracy to face. Stein Shostak Shostak Pollack & O'Hara, LLP, is in its ninth decade of representing importers, and we help them even the odds in disputes involving seizures by U.S. Customs.
