Criminal attorney

A good attorney treats about facts,
While brilliant one treats about opponent.

Russian system of investigative bodies is a very specific system, where law sometimes can be replaced by concepts. However, despite the fact that many lawyers go on about the system, the winners are those who challenges it bona fide by law. An excellent attorney’s defense provides even if not the acquittal, but a significantly commuted penalty and requalification of the act to the crime of lesser gravity.

Our attorneys would never display crazy statistics such as “99% acquittals”, because it is impossible number in Russian judicial system. Our attorneys cherish their good names and would never act out of law. Our rating among criminal attorneys is deserved by bona fide work with clean hands.

When choosing a competent criminal attorney you should pay attention on the following facts:

  • Is it comfortable for the suspect and his relatives to communicate with the attorney?

    Practice shows that when there is no trust between a client and an attorney, the emotional tension may influence on the quality of services in the future. That is why it is recommended to look at your criminal attorney’s eyes and ask yourself whether you are ready to entrust him your life, freedom and future.

  • Whether your attorney knows well specific sphere of your problem?

    When an attorney takes cases of all crimes, it probably means that he does not know specific features of each single crime and apply mostly general rules of Criminal law. Otherwise, when an attorney knows a certain category of crimes inside out, he knows typical mistakes of investigation bodies, all tricks they use in absence of evidences or in case of unlawfully collected evidences. Such attorney easily may destroy prosecution or demonstrate to the court fragility of the evidences.

  • Does your attorney know work of investigative authorities inside?

    It is not a surprise that factual way of work of Russian investigative bodies is significantly different from those one which is prescribed by legislation. In case if your attorney knows real work of investigators, he would be able to predict their acts and to evaluate procedural effect of all events.
