Are you dealing with criminal law and need legal assistance?

Criminal law

Have you received a subpoena from the prosecution to appear in court? Or did you immediately receive a sentence from the officer? Have you been summoned for questioning at the police station? Or has your driver’s license been confiscated? Then you are dealing with criminal law. Mr. Jan Vlug can assist you in your contact with the law and/or the police. Together we will discuss the case and the strategy and of course try to prevent criminal prosecution or to minimize the consequences.


Of course, we not only provide assistance in court, but at all stages of the (criminal) proceedings. For example during the police interrogation and until after the hearing. We also assist with all kinds of procedures related to the criminal process. Think for example of the return of seized goods, FIOD raids, TBS and deprivation procedures.

Suspect in a criminal case

When are you a suspect in a criminal case? For example, when you are actually being prosecuted by the government for a criminal offence. A criminal financial investigation is underway against you or if you have been convicted of a criminal offence. At the same time, the public prosecutor is trying to deprive you of certain goods or money that you have obtained as a result of a criminal offence. If you are in doubt as to whether you are or could be considered a suspect, we advise you to contact us.

Criminal proceedings

You will be prosecuted for an offence by the Public Prosecutor’s Office. The judge will assess whether you have committed this criminal offence and determine whether you should be punished. In all these cases a criminal procedure will be started that consists of several steps. Would you like to know which steps will be followed? If you are looking for advice and assistance during this procedure, please contact our criminal law specialists.

Arrest by police

You have been arrested by the police for questioning. This is allowed when you are suspected of committing a criminal offence. You will be taken to the police station where you will be interrogated. It is also possible that you are not arrested, but have received an “invitation for questioning”. In all cases, you are entitled to advice and assistance from a lawyer. Even before an interrogation. We advise you not to waive this right of consultation. Let Mr. Jan Vlug assist you in order to limit the damage for you.

Economic criminal law

Companies and their officials continue to have to deal with increasing regulatory pressure. Investigations by enforcement authorities such as the AFM and DNB, for example, and special investigative bodies such as the FIOD, are becoming increasingly common.
