Defense takes place at various stages of the legal process

A lawyer is obliged to provide full protection of his client at every stage of the legal process.

  • Starting with the transfer of materials from the prosecution, the lawyer must analyze every aspect of the case. It is important to determine whether all the necessary procedures were followed during the detention and investigation, whether the suspect’s rights were not violated.
  • At the stage of the judicial investigation, the lawyer has a huge influence on the formation of the evidence base. He helps the client to appoint expert opinions in a timely manner, argues the absence of criminal intent or determines the inadmissibility of some evidence due to violation of procedural norms.

 

Defense strategy and cooperation with experts

A lawyer must carefully develop a defense strategy, taking into account all the specifics of a specific case. It is important to understand the intricacies of expert opinions and case materials. Cooperation with experts from various fields, such as ballistics, chemistry, and others, can be crucial in proving the client’s innocence.

Consideration of penalties and alternative solutions

The lawyer must be ready to take into account possible punishments and look for alternative solutions to the case. This can be a plea deal, where the client agrees to plead guilty in exchange for a less severe sentence.

Ethical approach and confidentiality

A lawyer who represents the client’s interests in a case under Art. 263 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine, must act in accordance with high ethical standards and ensure the confidentiality of all information received in the course of the case.
