Brazil Criminal lawyers and the preliminary contact by the police: the “chat down the Police Station”
Few people realize the importance of the role of the attorney in the initial phase of the procedure in Brazil. The presence of a Criminal Lawyer during the hearings at the police station is crucial to prevent the development of unfounded accusations turn into full prosecutions.
Besides, the presence of the lawyer provides peace of mind, as this is a guarantee that officials will act in accordance with the law. This means, among other things, that any act of aggression or disrespect to the person under investigation is unjustifiable, and the lawyer can (and must) intervene to prevent any harm to his or her clients (art. 5, XLIX, of CF / 88).
Be proactive and call a Criminal lawyer. In Brazil, they are your best friend
Being a criminal lawyer in Brazil is not for amateurs. The penitentiary system here is very different from those in the US, the UK or the EU, and the shock for a foreign client would be terrifiyg. If you are the target of an investigation, have been accused of a crime or are concerned about this possibility, you must act quickly to avoid further damage. Don't wait: call a lawyer. He or she can take immediate steps and do everything possible to protect your rights. If you suspect you have a serious illnesses, you want to see the doctor IMMEDIATELY. The sooner the problem is tackled by a lawyer, the better the chances of a favorable prognosis.
Quick, smart and human.
The best criminal lawyer worries about the well being of the client, is extremely proactive, recognizes risks, assesses strategies and implements immediate measures for damage control. In addition to the fear of incarceration and a permanent criminal record, the personal consequences for family and professional life are not to be treated lightly. We have a reputation for our humanist profile and we take this very seriously. We make use of our resources not only to avoid an unwanted result, but also to protect marriages, careers and the future of those we represent.
