Criminal law Are you in trouble with the police or the justice department? You are not the only one!

Anyone can be in trouble with the police or the justice department. As a suspect, but also as a victim. Sometimes as a witness, but also as a parent.

The suspicion could arise in the event of violence, theft, fraud, but also with regard to commercial circulation, traffic and the environment.

Sometimes you also encounter other issues such as the payment of personal injury to victims, material damage, withdrawal of acquired benefits, penalties, criminal record (certificate of no objection), obligatory participation in a course, disqualification from driving etc.

If you are facing such events, it is very important for this nasty event to have as little (legal) impact on your life. The fact that you run the risk of having a criminal record is worse enough. Often, gathering information and requesting legal aid is the least you can do.

A suspicion can naturally be valid, but it can also be that someone is falsely accused. In any case, the best course of action to take is to contact a criminal law lawyer, preferably before you are heard by the police. He will look after your interests and inform you of what you can expect. A criminal lawyer is a confidential advisor who is bound by professional secrecy. He will try and gather information that will exonerate you. At proceedings, your lawyer will only present information that is in your interest.

Vinke Haarlemmermeer Advocatuur provides legal aid in the larger Hoofddorp area and will provide an estimate of your particular situation based on his many years of experience and expertise. We then provide you with advice for your best course of action. It is very important for you to make the right choices early on as these greatly impact your criminal case.

It is important to know that not all criminal cases involve a hearing. It is sometimes possible to negotiate with the prosecution on a settlement. But whatever you do, you are best advised to contact a criminal lawyer first.

Your first advice is always free of charge! If you wish to have a quick legal scan of your problem, please contact us for advice, free of charge. This will give you an indication of which legal solution is feasible for your problem.

It is possible to apply for a subsidy on the basis of the Legal Aid Act for further activities or procedures, which means you could potentially receive a significant part of the lawyer’s fee. This is referred to as an attachment. You contribution will, in that case, depend on your income. Mr Peter Vinke is member of the Legal Aid Council and can assist on the basis of such an attachment.
