Criminal acts

We advise seeking legal help concerning criminal cases in the investigation phase, because pre- trial investigation is often instrumental in solving a case and getting a conviction. That is why it is important that the crime suspect has a professional defence lawyer. An expert defence lawyer can properly monitor that the suspects rights and interests are taken care of in the investigation phase.

The victim of the crime or the so called plaintiff, is the person who was targeted by the crime. The victim, has a right to get compensation, from the person who committed the crime, for the damage that the crime caused the victim. This sort of compensation could be for example compensation for pains and aches, as well as compensation for a temporary handicap and for financial loss or so called compensation for suffering.

Restraining orders
A restraining order means that to ensure the safety of a person, or their health, freedom or peace, another person may be denied the right to contact the first person. A restraining order is often filed for, in cases where an ex-partner´s or room-mate´s phone calls, text messages or inappropriate visits are found disrupting. Anyone who feels thoroughly threatened, or harassed can file for a restraining order. Restraining orders are handled in civic court as urgent matters. They are treated as offences. The report is read and both parties are heard. Also witnesses are called if deemed necessary.
The person named in a basic restraining order, is not allowed to get close to or contact the person who is being protected. The restraining order can be extended to cover the protected persons house, vacation property, workplace or any other place that is comparable.
