The team of lawyers around partners Walter Van Steenbrugge and Christine Mussche defends perpetrators and victims and/or their relatives with an open mind. To their legal knowledge they add the benefit of other areas of expertise, including neurology, psychiatry, psychology and sociology, and they work together with traffic experts, toxicologists, medical specialists and accountants.
To clear away one preconception right at the start, this unit does not only deal with murder cases before the criminal court in which life imprisonment is at stake: our firm is just as passionate about defending those accused of traffic offences before the police court. Because even in those circumstances, the impact on your personal, professional or financial life can be huge. Don’t forget that you may be entitled to a free lawyer of your choice.
