Criminal cases

A criminal charge contains not only reputational risks but also the risk of undue restraint, so it is hard to imagine a more compelling reason to take the time to find highly qualified representation.

"I need a good criminal defence lawyer" is the request most often heard in a modern law firm. Every law firm sooner or later gives up and gets its own practice in this area, and only the most astute outsource such clients to experienced criminal defence lawyers, whose shortlist includes Alexander Kharchenko.

Another advantage of Aleksandr Kharchenko as a criminal defence lawyer in the legal services market is his legal investigation in Ukraine and abroad. The service includes:

  1. - collection of evidence,
  2. - requesting and obtaining information and documents,
  3. - initiating investigations, expert examinations and other actions in the interests of the client in cases provided for by law.

If necessary, the service may also include a polygraph test (lie detector). What is this procedure and why is it needed? A polygraph examination is an interview that helps to establish the truthfulness of specific information. A polygraph is a device with special sensors that record a person's physiological indicators, such as breathing rate, heartbeat, skin conductivity, etc. Based on the indicators collected, the polygraph examiner draws a conclusion as to whether or not the person is involved in a particular act.

Lie-detector tests are only carried out with the voluntary written agreement of the interviewee. Before the procedure, the polygraph examiner conducts a discussion to familiarise the person with the questions to be answered during the test. The examiner needs to make sure that the interviewee understands the questions. You do not need to fear this test as our polygraph examiner has over ten years' experience.

Advocate investigation is a service provided by the best criminal lawyers in Kiev

Such investigation is carried out as part of the lawyer's professional activities on the basis of the Law of Ukraine "On the Bar and Advocacy". In particular, Article 20 of the Law gives a lawyer the right to collect information about facts, receive and seize things and documents and also to interview individuals (with their consent). However, not all lawyers have the skills and resources to exercise their right to conduct a full-fledged lawyer investigation. The work of such lawyers usually boils down to appealing against procedural violations committed by law enforcement authorities as part of their investigation.

In any country, the protection of the rights of convicts is a matter that is dealt with by a limited circle of lawyers.

Due to their incompetence, law enforcement agencies are often inactive where their intervention is necessary. A frequent response to a statement about the commission of a crime, on the basis of which law enforcement officers should initiate a criminal case, is a refusal order.

  2. - appeal against the inactivity of the investigator and the prosecutor
