Using the law to help people.

Brechtje Vossenberg (1980)

Brechtje Vossenberg specializes in the representation of victims of crimes and human rights violations, both in criminal and civil procedures.  Among other things, she represents many victims and surviving relatives in complex civil procedures against the State of the Netherlands and has a particular interest in humanitarian law cases. She also represents victims in criminal trials (in particular: violent- and sex crimes and human trafficking) as well as in procedures before international institutions such as the various UN human rights treaty bodies. Before coming to Prakken d'Oliveira, she worked at the Cambodia Tribunal in Phnom Penh (ECCC). Until mid-2016, she also worked as a criminal defense lawyer.
