Were you driving under the influence of alcohol? Did you cause a traffic accident out of carelessness? Did you get involved in a brawl? In different and sometimes quite common situations, you may get into trouble with the law.
Whether it is a coercion expressed in the context of a dispute, omitted assistance, a false testimony in court or the unpaid importation of dutiable goods – many criminal acts are often dismissed as a trivial offense without in fact being trivial. Criminal law can have a strong influence on individual freedom. Therefore, you should seek the help of a lawyer specializing in criminal law early enough.
A report by the police or the public prosecutor’s office will usually tell you early on that you are being investigated for a criminal offense. However, often times, the letter informing you of an accusation is already using an incomprehensible language. Without legal advice, it may remain unclear how to react in the ideal case. Do not wait too long, consult a lawyer working as a criminal lawyer immediately. This is especially true if you are accused of a more serious crime – and ideally, you do this before the police arrives at your doorstep with an arrest warrant. You should not make any statements without first contacting the lawyer.
