Anyone who is suspected of having committed a crime has the right to a defence counsel. A public defence counsel may be provided in more complex criminal cases or for young offenders. Luterkort Advokatbyrå accepts public defence counsel assignments, and anyone suspected of having committed a crime may request a specific lawyer to defend him or her.
If you are the victim of a crime, you may have the right to a legal representative who can support you during the judicial process and assist with any claims for damages.
We also act as representatives for injured parties. In the same way as you can request a public defence counsel, you can also request a particular lawyer to represent you as the injured party.
