Re-Thinking criminal Defense
When it comes to your freedom and reputation: 100% Criminal Defense Lawyer.
With us there is no room for „criminal law on the side“: the criminal defense lawyers of our, in Germany, in the Aachen area located, lawyer boutique focus on criminal defense for private individuals. We are not „lawyers for everything“, but have recognized early on that in criminal law you need absolute professionals who do not get bogged down – so that clear announcements also have a real value. Because criminal charges are not only about the punishment, the sanction alone, but also always about your reputation. In social and business life, your reputation, your good name, is of particular importance – we find face-saving solutions so that your life can go on.
Criminal defense has been rethought by us: the model we have developed, „Consult different„, is based on an extremely factual approach as well as the American model, which is characterized by a much more personal approach by lawyers. Because if you feel lonely and lost in a criminal case, you need a direct contact with time, honesty and empathy.
