Immigration Appeals & Criminal Law

Foreigners in the Czech Republic often face denial of their Czech residence permits for number of technical or bureaucratic reasons. But a good Czech immigration layer can help. Not all denials are justified and some of them can be reversed.


Czech criminal law is also quite strict and this can be a surprise for foreigners in the Czech Republic, Czech police often uses a detention without bail. A good Czech criminal lawyer can substantially increase your chances in getting the police accusations dismissed or to substantially lower your sentence.


As a foreigner you can easily get in trouble in the Czech Republic when you do not know the specific rules. The allowed amout of drug possesion or alcohol level while driving could catch you by suprise. For this reason, should you get arrested it is best to turn to an experienced criminal attorney as soon as possible.
