Criminal lawyers in Stockholm
advocat.se is one of Stockholm’s specialist law firms focusing on criminal action. The firm was founded by lawyer Charlie Tvärenvigg on 15 March 1999.
At advocat.se, there are several lawyers who all specialise in criminal action, i.e. in acting as defence attorneys in all types of criminal cases; general criminal proceedings, juvenile cases and cases related to economic crime.
If you become suspected of a crime, you are always entitled to be represented by a defence attorney in police interrogations and at court, i.e. be assisted by a criminal lawyer. In many cases, you are entitled to have a defence attorney paid for by the state, referred to as a public defender.
Tell the police which defence attorney from advocat.se you would like prior to the first interrogation, or contact us directly and we can help you.
Counsel for the injured party
As with most criminal lawyers, we also act as counsel to victims of crime, i.e. as counsel for the injured party and special representative for a minor.
Asylum-seekers and people seeking protection will often face particular difficulties, perhaps due to language limitations or insufficient knowledge of the Swedish asylum process. For this reason, it will often be helpful to get assistance from a lawyer or other legal expert, the cost of which is covered by the state, i.e. a public counsel. The public counsel helps the applicant present their case to the Swedish Migration Agency, is present at the investigation interviews at the Agency, submits statements on behalf of the applicant and otherwise ensures that the applicant’s rights are observed. At advocat.se, we also accept this type of assignment.
Compulsory institutional care
When a child is being mistreated or at risk of causing self-harm (LVU), or when adults are risking their future through substance abuse (LVM) or due to illness (LPT), the authorities sometimes wish to take these individuals into compulsory care. In cases relating to compulsory care, the Compulsory Care of Young Persons (Special Provisions) Act, the Care of Abusers (Special Provisions) Act or the Compulsory Mental Care Act, it can be difficult to protect your own rights or express an opinion to the authorities. For this reason, it will often be helpful to get assistance from a lawyer or other legal expert, the cost of which is covered by the state, i.e. a public counsel. The public counsel helps the applicant present their case, for example before the Administrative Court, is present at investigation interviews, submits statements on behalf of the person being taken into care and otherwise ensures that their rights are observed. At advocat.se, we also accept this type of assignment.
Custody dispute? Living arrangements and access rights
When parents are involved in a dispute regarding custody, living arrangements and/or access rights for their children, it can sometimes exhaust all possibilities of reaching a mutual understanding, with or without the help of social services. You may then feel that the matter needs to be considered by a court. In those cases, it is often necessary to employ a representative, i.e. a lawyer or other legal expert, to help and to speak on your behalf in the District Court. At advocat.se, we also accept this type of assignment.Follow us on:
