  • Profile

Consultant exclusively to the law office of Jeffrey S. Weiner, P.A., Miami, Florida.

These days, the effective practice of law goes beyond the courtroom.

It is often necessary to meet with prosecutors, agents, Embassy officials, and witnesses, in and outside of the United States. Too often, we have seen lawyers take a combative attitude when it is not necessary, appropriate, or beneficial to their clients to do so. Practicing law requires maturity and an understanding of how the government operates. Prosecutors, government agents, and employees from the Departments of Justice, State, and Treasury are usually honorable men and woman trying to carry out their jobs. It is the responsibility of defense counsel to educate the government officials as to the merits of our clients’ causes, and the fairness and reasonability of our positions in order to obtain the result(s) we desire.

To enhance our effectiveness, we have retained the services of Mr. Guido Del Prado as a consultant, exclusively to our law firm. In appropriate cases, we employ the services of Guido Del Prado to take advantage of his experiences and contacts as a result of his distinguished career with the United States Department of State.

Guido Del Prado served the United States in Bolivia, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, France, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Panama, Peru, and Washington, D.C., primarily while assigned to various embassies. Some of his titles included Regional Director, Counselor for Narcotics Affairs, Project Manager, and Counselor for Administrative Affairs.

Mr. Del Prado routinely worked with high-level officials – elected and appointed – of the various host countries. While serving in Colombia, he managed resources and personnel for 15 government agencies, including the FBI, DEA, ATF and Customs, International counter-narcotics affairs and strategy, and managing millions of dollars for federal law enforcement was what he did best.

Among his many honors, Guido was a Robert F. Kennedy Fellow, a graduate of the National Defense University, Director of Recruitment and Placement Regional Directory for Central America and Panama for Harvard University’s Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, and a Doctoral Candidate at Harvard University. He is also a two-time recipient of the United States Department of State Award of Valor.

In keeping with our law firms’ policy of providing very intense and specialized representation of our limited number of clients, we will call on Guido Del Prado to work with us when appropriate. His experience is invaluable when dealing with OFAC and denial of United States visa matters.
