Criminal law / Defence counsel

If you are charged or indicted in a criminal case, you are entitled to a defence counsel at every stage of the case. You can choose your own defence counsel.

We can assist you when you are being questioned by the police, review and assess the documents in the case, represent you in court hearings, whether it concerns remand in custody or an ordinary main hearing.

With a few exceptions, it is common in criminal cases that the defence counsel is paid for by the public purse.

Our lawyers have extensive experience of assisting clients in criminal cases, and we always make sure that our clients’ rights are safeguarded at all stages of a criminal case, in relation to the police, the prosecuting authority and the courts. We can also help our clients to claim compensation for unwarranted prosecution.

Please do not hesitate to contact us. We will quickly find out whether you are entitled to free defence counsel.
