Criminal Law and Cases

Criminal Law is a branch of law that deals with the criminal and criminal part of the unlawful acts and transactions of individuals. The fact that an act can constitute a crime depends on the definition of that act as a crime in the law and the incorporation of all the material and moral legal elements of the crime in that act.

Criminal procedure law, on the other hand, is a branch of law that deals with the state’s duty to ensure the justice and security of society by prosecuting individuals under suspicion of crime, namely perpetrators, and punishing when necessary, and dates back as far as human history.
Criminal defense is; It is the whole of the trial activities carried out by the accused or his defense counsel in order to demonstrate that the state does not have the right to punish in response to the accused’s claim that he is guilty.

Criminal procedure has always been the sharp sword of states throughout history. In this field, where the individual is powerless and defenseless against this extremely sharp sword, the one who is strong and helps the individual in his defense and does not leave the individual alone against the powerful state and its weapon is the lawyer who does his duty of defense.
Today, in the face of the extremely detailed legal texts and thus the types of crimes, and the detailed and complex rules of the trial, the defense of the accused, who have no education and experience, does not constitute a real and good defense and leads to deprivation of rights. Therefore, in today’s most criminal cases, it would be more correct and necessary for the criminal defense to be made by the defense counsel, especially if the penalties for the crimes alleged to have been committed by the accused are heavy. Therefore, the importance and necessity of criminal attorneyship for a fairer trial and for the exercise of the right is indisputable. Criminal lawyers play an important role in criminal proceedings and criminal cases in order not to lose the right to freedom, which is the most basic human right.
Due to the contribution and importance of criminal lawyers in criminal proceedings and hearings, if you are faced with any criminal case, it is necessary, to work with a good and expert criminal lawyer.

“…a criminal lawyer should be different from a business lawyer. How can he understand a murderer who, at least once, has not personally tasted the roots of murder in his imagination? How can one who does not scour all aspects of the social order in his mind defend it? The justice officer, like the middle imperial artist, must know the man’s name, the woman’s figure, and the standing of the eleven cents. Could the lawyer Fulvius have defended Spartacus if he had not jumped from the walls of Capua one evening to join the slaves’ revolt? Could Judge Pörfir himself have found out that Raskolnikov was guilty had he not one day dreamed of a beautiful murder?

Attorney Jacques Vergès/The Defense Attacks.

“…Criminal advocacy is a strange thing. You won’t blame, you won’t be angry, you won’t cry. These things happen. But you should always be inside of you. Don’t let your gaze be smuggled in. Look into the eyes of the criminal in front of you, friendly. You will see the “person” who wants to pour out his troubles there. After that, it gets easier. “Man takes poison from man,” they say, colloquially. That’s half of criminal law.”
