Frequently Asked Questions
When you should hire a criminal lawyer?
Immediately, before doing anything else. As in a medical case, the problems addressed early on are more likely to be satisfactorily solved.
Why is it better to hire a lawyer dedicated exclusively to criminal law?
Because criminal law is a complex and constantly changing discipline that requires total dedication to master. Your chances of success will be greater with a specialist criminal lawyer.
What should I do if accused of having committed a crime?
Consult a criminal lawyer before taking any action or talk to anyone. If you act without professional advice, you can make strategic mistakes that later will have a negative impact on the judicial process.
Is it worth hiring a criminal lawyer if I am innocent?
It is preferable to hire a specialized criminal lawyer even if you’re innocent. Sometimes the innocent are convicted.
Is it advisable to hire a criminal lawyer if the charges against me are not very serious?
It is a misconception that a criminal prosecution can be not very serious. A conviction, even if it seems of little importance, can have consequences in the future, like a more severe punishment on a second conviction.
Can they condemn me if there is only my word against the complainant?
According to Spanish criminal law they can condemn you, because the word of the complainant constitutes sufficient evidence if the judge considers it credible.
Is it possible to change my criminal lawyer if I already have one in criminal proceedings?
You have the right to change your lawyer at any time.
Is it confidential everything that you tell to the criminal lawyer?
It is confidential by law. The Constitution protects communications between client and lawyer. Neither the courts nor the administration can force a defendant or an attorney to disclose the contents of their conversations.
Does it make sense to hire a lawyer if I want to plead guilty and confess?
A criminal lawyer will help first to know the advantages and disadvantages of pleading guilty. Later, if you are willing to do so, the criminal lawyer will try to get the best reduced sentence allowed by law.
