The job of the criminal defense attorney is
to give trust where everyone refuses; to develop compassion where feelings have died; to sow doubts where no one has them anymore;
and to plant hope where it had long since evaporated.

Tips for arrest and search

  • Make use of your right to remain silent.
  • Memorize your lawyer’s number beforehand. The mobile phone is the first thing that is taken away from you.
  • Never defend yourself physically. Even tearing it away can be seen as resistance to law enforcement officers.
  • Insist on calling the defense lawyer of your choice.
  • Let them know that you will only provide information if your lawyer is present. Then they will wait for your lawyer.
  • Contradict to searches and seizures.

Philosophy

Criminal defense is characterized by the fact that you think things through beforehand and discuss them with the client with all the ramifications. I take this time, because there is nothing worse than an uninformed and unprepared client in criminal proceedings.

This requires legal experience from the courtroom and a humane and direct contact with his clients.

From the initial contact to the successful conclusion of the proceedings, you speak exclusively with me. My defence is based on this; a genuine relationship of trust between lawyer and client. I reflect this empathy in my pleadings and applications to the court.

Fee

In principle, the lawyer’s fee is based on the German Lawyers’ Fees Act (RVG).

In deviation from this, fee agreements (e.g. according to hourly rates or flat rates) can be agreed.

Such a fee agreement may then also exceed the amount of the fee. the statutory fees, including the initial consultation fee. Please bear in mind that I am a freelancer and can make my knowledge and time available to you.

Please read the further information under “Fees” and feel free to ask me about the costs. Legal expenses insurance may also be a possible cost bearer.
