Proactive Criminal Defense
We act proactively on your behalf already in the Criminal Investigation proceedings. After reviewing the case files, we help shape the course of the investigation by taking over communication with the criminal prosecution authorities on your behalf, submitting key documents and conducting enquiries for you. We also prepare you for your interrogation as a accused, submit motions for evidence on your behalf and, if necessary, lodge appeals and legal remedies on your behalf.
Avoidance of a public trial as the aim of the defense
We never lose sight of our clients’ personal situation. We also consider the human side and know that criminal proceedings are not only nerve-wracking for the accused, but can also damage their good reputation. Therefore, our defense aims to discreetly bring about an early end of the proceedings during the investigation process without the need for a public – and often stigmatizing – main hearing. We prepare a written statement with you that contains not only your standpoint in the proceedings, but also important legal explanations for the prosecuting authorities. This can increase the likelihood that the preliminary proceedings will be discontinued or settled through diversion.
Even if charges have been brought against you, we will represent you competently in the main court proceedings and in appeal proceedings.
