Who else needs a criminal lawyer?

A witness in a criminal case can also benefit a legal advice of a qualified lawyer. Often witnesses, under the influence of the pressure of the preliminary investigation bodies, do not fully understand their legal right to refuse to testify about themselves, close relatives and family members.

It is very important that the lawyer starts work before the first interrogation: after all, the prosecution builds its own line, largely guided by the data obtained during this period of the investigation.

Therefore, a qualified lawyer seeks to take personal part in the preliminary investigation, if necessary, to appeal against unlawful actions against his client.
