Was referred by a good friend who spoke highly of Dass. Had an initial complimentary consultation and obtained a lot of invaluable information for me to follow up. Dass is a nice guy who is genuine about helping clients rather than focus on billing which in my opinion is key. He made the effort to understand my situation particularly with specific details which I had not even thought of ! I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to assess his technical expertise and he came across as highly experienced and knowledgeable.

Mr Dass is the best criminal defence lawyer who I had met to date. He took over my case from another defence lawyer with confidence and empathy. Other than the legal skills which he possessed and advised throughout, his advocacy skills have been unparalleled and he has the ability to respond and react well when circumstances changed unexpectedly. He is more than a lawyer. In times of need, he is also a friend, a counsellor and a man of great empathy with loads of patience. I highly recommend Mr Dass and his team of specialists who are very competent and capable lawyers. He is a great leader in leading and directing his team. Without a doubt, that is why his firm won awards and continues to receive accolades over the years consistently. I highly recommend them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Having a criminal defence lawyer better ensures that you are not falsely accused with charges in court. Being charged with a criminal offence can be scary, but with legal representation and top defence attorneys in Singapore assisting you, you can receive qualified advice and correct information. You can trust our experienced lawyers to provide you with the best legal aid and achieve your desired outcome.

Here are some of the benefits of having a criminal defence lawyer:

  1. Increase your chances of winning

Hiring a criminal defence attorney will cost you some money, but compared to the benefits they bring, it is definitely worth the spending. Having a capable and experienced criminal defence lawyer will enable you to identify weak points in your case early on as you develop your strategy. This will help you avoid making snap judgments and squandering opportunities that you may come to regret.

  1. It helps to save time and prevent unnecessary stress

Legal cases and processes will be discussed during your consultations. You will also require a solid understanding of various laws and penal codes in Singapore in order to navigate the criminal justice system.

However, if you hire a knowledgeable criminal defence attorney to handle and manage your case from start to finish, you can significantly reduce your stress, save time, and avoid disruption to your personal and professional life.

  1. Support in interrogation

Knowing your rights, the direction and main points of your explanation, and what you can refuse to respond to and keep your slience are important when you're likely to be detained for police interrogation and statement-taking session.

You may better prepare and present the desired facts and set the right impression to the investigators by enlisting the assistance of a criminal defence attorney early on. This will also help you know in advance how to anticipate queries and prep for the areas of examination.

When considering the price of hiring a reliable criminal lawyer in Singapore, many factors exist because every criminal case is different. We believe that everyone deserves access to legal representation, regardless of their financial situation. We understand how frightening it is to be accused of a crime, so call us for a friendly consultation, and we will do everything we can to help.

The police will permit you to consult a criminal defence lawyer within a reasonable period or after conducting thorough investigations on your case. This time may vary depending on the case’s complexity and may increase if they prove that speaking with your lawyer may hinder the investigation process. If you have further questions or require legal representation, contact us, and we will assist you to the best ability.

  • Knowledge and expertise: An experienced criminal lawyer has a comprehensive and extensive understanding of criminal law and legal procedures. They have the necessary skills and expertise to navigate the criminal justice system, as well as knowledge of the complexities of criminal law to assist in detecting weaknesses in the prosecution's case.
  • Protection of rights: Having a criminal lawyer who can defend your legal rights throughout the criminal justice process is essential when facing criminal accusations, as they can assist you in understanding your legal rights, such as your right to legal representation, and your right to remain silent.
  • Emotional support: Coping with criminal charges may be a very stressful and difficult process. Yet, having a skilled criminal lawyer on your side can offer you moral support and direction. This can support your ability to maintain confidence and attention during the entire process.
  • Reducing penalties: If you are facing criminal allegations, a skilled criminal lawyer can help you craft a strategic defence to reduce the penalties of the allegations, such as fines, probation, or jail time. They might be able to work out plea agreements or alternative sentencing in some circumstances.

  • Communication: Choose a criminal lawyer who communicates clearly and regularly with you. They should be able to explain legal concepts in a way you can understand and keep you informed of any updates in your case.
  • Fees: Discuss fees and payment arrangements with your criminal lawyer upfront. You want to make sure you understand the costs involved and that they are reasonable and transparent.
  • Experience and Expertise: Look for a criminal lawyer with experience handling cases similar to yours. You want a lawyer who has a thorough understanding of the legal system and can navigate complex criminal proceedings.
  • Trust and Comfort: As you will be required to share sensitive information with your lawyer, so it's important to choose a criminal lawyer who you feel comfortable working with and who you trust to protect your legal rights.

The timeline of a criminal case can vary depending on a number of factors. While some cases can be swiftly settled through plea negotiations or other methods, others may require months or even years to go to trial.

The length of the trial, if one is necessary, will also have an impact on how long the case takes. Depending on the intricacy of the case, the number of witnesses, and the amount of evidence, a trial may last several days, weeks, or even months.

Generally speaking, less serious crimes like traffic violations or minor drug offences may be processed more quickly as compared to violent and serious crimes like murder or white-collar crimes.

It's important to note that the legal process can be unpredictable, as there can be unexpected delays or complications that arise at any point in a criminal case. If you have questions about how long your specific case may take, it's best to consult with a criminal lawyer who can provide more detailed information based on the specifics of your case.
