Such an appeal will be particularly necessary and urgent if:

  • You have been suspected of committing a crime
  • You have been visited by law enforcement officers for a search
  • You have been injured as a result of an unlawful act
  • You are called as a witness

Important advice! The timeliness of seeking legal assistance from a lawyer can be a key factor that will tip the scales in your favour. So do not hesitate – we can help!

Appealing against a notice of suspicion

If you have been served with a notice of suspicion, you have a real opportunity to get rid of the status of a suspect by appealing the procedure for serving a notice of suspicion.

A lawyer can get a notice of suspicion cancelled for the following reasons:

  • Unfoundedness of the suspicion 74 %.
  • Violation of the procedure for serving a notice of suspicion 11
  • Improper subject of serving the notice of suspicion 6
  • Other reasons 9

The participation of an attorney-at-law in criminal proceedings is the most responsible and difficult area of all possible. A person is usually left face to face with the punitive and repressive machine of the state. The situation is compounded by the accusatory bias in the work of both the investigation and the courts. The only one who can stop the arbitrariness is a criminal defence lawyer.

Important! It is disadvantageous for law enforcement officers when your interests are protected by an experienced criminal defence lawyer. The defence lawyer is likely to find many mistakes in the work of the investigation and “break the case”, which will lead to the client’s complete acquittal. Therefore, investigators and operatives try to put pressure and offer their own lawyer, or offer their services in providing a free lawyer, justifying their actions by allegedly caring about the person’s well-being. In no case should you give in to any persuasion from law enforcement officers. Only a lawyer hired by you and whom you can fully trust will work most effectively!
