For many people, fiscal criminal law sounds unsettling, and in some cases, threatening. For me, fiscal criminal law is familiar territory and a field in which I enjoy working and feel confident and comfortable.
There can be several reasons why people come into conflict with the law due to their financial management. I discuss the possible strategies together with my clients and determine a solution together with them. I maintain active, respectful and cooperative dealings with authorities in the interests of achieving a positive solution for my clients. In this respect, I attribute importance to providing an effective and successful service to my clients.
I am repeatedly fascinated by the interesting people I meet in my work. The trust they place in my knowledge and ability to get things done fills me with pride and joy.
