Below is a summary of the most important and useful information you need to know about criminal law and criminal procedures.

Defense in criminal proceedings

The defense of the accused is a fundamental element of the criminal proceedings, a guarantee of due process of law. In addition to their own defense, the accused may also entrust their defense to a criminal lawyer, i.e. a defense attorney. In certain cases the participation of a defense attorney is mandatory in criminal proceedings if for example the offence is punishable by law with imprisonment of 5 years or more, if the accused is in any form of detention, or if the accused does not speak Hungarian.

How can a criminal lawyer, a defense attorney help?

Hiring a lawyer is not only advisable in cases of mandatory defense, as even the simplest witness interview or claim for damages, or the early stages of criminal proceedings, require expertise, for which knowledge of the current legislation and legal terms is essential. Without a lawyer, it is easy to get lost in procedural details, which can often have adverse consequences.

Not only does a lawyer facilitate transparency in the proceedings, but it is particularly important in the field of criminal law that the defense attorney is able to prepare the client for the possible legal consequences, to answer questions from the authorities and to provide information on all the issues that may arise.

Things to consider when choosing the right criminal lawyer?

Expertise and competence: the client's aim is to get the right help at any stage of the criminal proceedings. The right lawyer is not only required to know their role, but also to be able to assist the client throughout the proceedings, to have the necessary competence and expertise to represent the client in each procedural step and to provide information on the likely legal consequences. All the above require a thorough knowledge of the law and the procedure.

Availability: In addition to the requirements of expertise and competence, a good lawyer must be able to provide his client with the right information at the right time. It is therefore essential that the client can contact their lawyer at any time. A defense attorney must always be available to his client, and this is particularly important in the field of criminal law.

Transparent fees and costs: the lawyer must clearly inform his client of both the fixed amount of his own fees and any costs that he may incur or be required to pay during the proceedings.
