riminal Law stands out as one of the most sensitive areas at the legal profession, since it affects the essential rights such as the right to freedom, focused as the right of not being restricted neither the person’s autonomy nor the freedom of movement.
From the moment a person may be affected by a criminal procedure, will fall on him the risk of a penalty as the deprivation of liberty, through the entry in a detention center, which will become an extraordinary concern for the affected, as well as for his lawyer who will assume responsibility of his defense knowing the consequences for his client of a conviction.
Our Constitution establishes the principle of presumption of innocence which means that any citizen has the right not to be found guilty unless this citizen was convicted by a fair trial.
In the same way, the proportionally principle, the principle of equality and the principle of prohibition to punish a same act twice are principles that rule in Criminal Law.
In our legal system, the Criminal Code regulates the various types of acts and behaviors that are considered crimes and the Law of Criminal Procedure establishes the procedural processing of these cases.
This other principle, that governs in Criminal Law, known as the classification of a crime, implies that a person can only be condemned for those conducts that are typified as an offense in the Criminal Code.
For years we take care of those who at some point of their lives are facing a case of this type, either as harmed or as a defendant.
Our capability to defense the rights of our clients and the assistance we provide so that they feel accompanied and advised in light of the difficulty that supposes being actively or passively affected by a criminal case, is beyond doubt.
