US/Cuban Embargo

The United States has imposed an embargo against Cuba since 1962. Many individuals and businesses believe that this means they cannot travel to Cuba and/or do business in the country. However, this is not entirely true. If businesses and individuals have specific interests within Cuba, it may be possible to secure legal clearance to interact with Cuba-based individuals and/or businesses despite the embargo.

At the office of Ambar Diaz, P.A. in Miami, Florida, we have extensive knowledge of the specific licenses and documentation that are required for individuals and businesses that wish to travel to or conduct business in Cuba. Our office has provided assistance to numerous individuals and businesses in dealing with a variety of government agencies that regulate professional and personal contact with Cuba, including the Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) and the U.S. Department of Commerce. Though we are located in Miami, we can represent clients from across the country and world if necessary.

Our attorney, Ambar Diaz, is highly experienced in handling matters related to the embargo. She not only has experience representing individuals and businesses here in the U.S. as a lawyer, but Ms. Diaz also practiced law in Cuba for several years. This knowledge of both Cuban and American law is valuable to our clients and allows Ms. Diaz to offer highly specialized guidance and advice. She is greatly respected for her sound representation on these matters throughout the legal communities of the U.S. and Cuba.

The U.S. / Cuba embargo relations services we offer are not limited to obtaining licenses and documentation. Our firm also provides representation to clients who have been charged with violating the embargo and are facing civil penalties. We can help you understand your options and protect your rights throughout the process of representing you.
