At the stage of preliminary investigation
The right line of defense at the preliminary investigation is more likely to succeed

The implementation of the defense during the preliminary investigation can be carried out at any stage of the case consideration. The defender may start participation depending on the current situation. If necessary, our specialists will begin work with the start of procedural coercive measures affecting the rights and freedoms of the suspect.

The defendant or his representatives under the law or other persons to whom he has addressed may invite a lawyer at the preliminary investigation stage. The role of a lawyer is extremely important because he will work against representatives of counterparties who are professionally trained people.

During the investigation, an important role is given to proving the innocence of the defendant. This stage involves the identification, clarification and consolidation of evidence.

From which stage is the lawyer authorized to carry out his actions during the preliminary investigation?

There are two stages in the work of a specialist:

  1. Participation in the conduction of investigative actions, acquaintance with the submitted case materials, accusations of opponents;
  2. Filing petitions, presenting evidence in the case, appealing the actions of the investigating authorities.

A lawyer during the preliminary investigation can start work from the beginning of the case consideration when the citizen was involved as an accused or when an individual started the initiation of a case. In this case, the participation of a lawyer is optimal also during interrogations. And in this situation the accused may already be in a pre-trial detention center. Also, a defense lawyer may be invited after the appointment of a forensic psychiatric examination to the accused.

Stages of protection during the preliminary investigation:

  • protection of interests and assistance of a lawyer during interrogation, confrontations, investigative experiments;
  • visit in isolation;
  • appeal against the verdict;
  • preparation and publication of motions and petitions;
  • familiarization with the materials of the case;
  • development of a certain line and tactics of defense;
