Criminal law

You could be faced with a criminal investigation, privately or with your company. Criminal action raises many different questions. Are you regarded as a witness or as a suspect? Do you have to take part in an enquiry and what does a summons mean? How will the process run? And what is the sentence or penalty that can be imposed in a case? If you are involved with the police or judicial authorities in connection with an offence, you can always rely on the criminal lawyers from De Kempenaer.
