Public and private defender

If you are suspected of committing a crime you may be entitled to a public defender. You always have the right to propose who you want to have as your attorney. As your defender, we help you throughout the process; we are with you during the preliminary investigation (police investigation) and during the trial in court. The cost of a public defender is primarily paid by the government.

In some cases, if you are suspected of a crime which can only lead to a fine, you may is some cases not be eligible to a public defender. In those cases, you can hire a private defender to represent you. The cost of a private defender is primarily paid by yourself. In case of a verdict of acquittal, the government usually pay compensation for any reasonable costs you may have had to hire an attorney.

Vi support and help you throughout the process; we are with you during the police interrogations and during the trial in court. We can also help you to bring your action for damages.
