Our firm has extensive experience in the area of providing legal assistance to victims. We do so in a wide range of criminal law cases, such as domestic abuse, human trafficking as well as serious assault- and sex crimes.
Victims can also apply for compensation through the civil courts. This can be done in conjunction with or following the end of a criminal prosecution.
