Capital criminal law

Capital criminal law deals with serious crimes that lead to a person's death or involve attempted murder or manslaughter. The proceedings in capital criminal cases can be complex, emotionally charged, and high-profile, lasting from several days to months.

In such cases, courts often order the accused to be detained before trial, and there is a risk of a long or life sentence, sometimes followed by preventive detention. If there is an allegation of homicide, it is crucial to seek the assistance of a criminal defense lawyer familiar with the unique features of capital criminal cases immediately.

The criminal proceedings often involve complex substantive law, science, forensic medicine, and psychology questions. Therefore, a legally competent, determined, and persistent criminal defense is required to achieve the best possible result for the client.
