Criminal Law and Victim Representation

For Victims

  • I was the victim of a sex crime. Will I have to face my tormentor again in court?
  • My home was broken into. Who will compensate the damages?
  • What advantages come with joining criminal proceedings as a private party?
  • I am being stalked. What can I do about it?

For Suspects, Accused and Defendants

  • A person was harmed when I caused a car accident due to negligence. I have since found out that they initiated court proceedings against me. How can I get out of this?
  • The police cited me for an interrogation. Who will accompany me to this appointment?
  • How can I salvage the future of my child when he or she have been caught smoking a joint?
  • What consequences will my sentence have on my professional life?
