Support of criminal proceedings
Initiation of criminal cases is a common way of putting pressure on businesses and raiding. That is why it is very important to know an experienced and reliable criminal lawyer. Irrespective of your procedural status, the sooner your lawyer comes to you, if necessary, the better for you and for the favorable outcome of the case. Occasions, where people are called in for questioning as a witness and in the course of such an interrogation their procedural status is changed to the status of a suspect are of no surprise.
Criminal prosecution may begin in the field of tax evasion or may be based on some forged facts. These days filing a criminal lawsuit against a CEO or a chief accountant of a company is not particularly difficult. Such situations often have dynamic development: a Special Forces unit arrives to the office of the company or to the residence of its owner and starts search, seizure and interrogation. Practice shows that the faster criminal lawyers come to the defendant, the more effective and successful are the outcomes of the case for him or her.
