FREE LEGAL ADVICE
If you or one of the people you live with has family (civil liability) insurance that provides legal aid, you may be entitled to a free lawyer of your choice. This is usually the case when you are the victim of a crime.
If you are prosecuted for a traffic violation, your car insurance may cover the cost of your criminal defence. In case of disciplinary proceedings, you may in certain cases rely on your professional liability insurance for your disciplinary defence. If you are prosecuted in your capacity as a director of a company, you may benefit from legal assistance under your directors' liability insurance.
In other cases too, you may be able to appeal for free legal assistance. We can check whether your insurance and the applicable policy conditions provide this for your case.
