Physical and mental violence often leave an indelible impact on a victim. A physical assault can result in trauma that lasts for years (or even lifelong). But also moral violence, such as harassment or stalking can leave deep wounds. These crimes are increasingly being prosecuted.
Our criminal law team has extensive experience with all types of violent crimes, ranging from homicide to assault and battery, and harassment. We will always ensure that you clearly understand everything and that the right steps are taken quickly.
For victims of violent crimes, the assistance of a lawyer is often covered by family insurance. It will pay for the lawyer and experts (doctor, traffic expert, psychiatrist, etc.).
As a perpetrator, it’s best to engage a lawyer before making a statement to the police. Our expert can advise you on the prevailing case-law on violent crime. For example, according to high-court jurisprudence, a simple shove is equivalent to a ‘blow’ and falls under the crime ‘assault and battery’. Also being present in a group, certain members of which have issued blows, can lead to the conviction of the whole group. So, never hesitate to ask for advice from a criminal lawyer before any questioning or statement.
