Criminal Defense Attorneys

The criminal justice system of Ghana is not designed for accused persons to represent themselves in any forum. Any person arrested and or accused of having committed a criminal offence within the jurisdiction of Ghana needs an attorney to stand up for his rights, fight back against overzealous police officers and or prosecutors and obtain the best possible results as far as the charges proffered against him is concerned. This is exactly the hallmark of criminal defense attorneys of Legalstone Solicitors LLP. We marshal all resources and effectively represents our clients before a judge and a jury with the sole aim of securing a favorable result for an accused person (our client).

 

The Constitution of the Republic of Ghana clearly dictates that, every person accused of a criminal offence shall be deemed innocent until proven guilty or has pleaded guilty. The law further requires an accused person to be tried within a reasonable time and more importantly demands that an accuse person shall be afforded a legal representation. This is fundamental to our practice as defense attorneys representing clients in our law courts. We put up a spirited defense to ensure that these basic tenets of the law are adhered to its logical conclusion and thereby in the process guaranteeing the fundamental human rights of our client.

  • DO NOT speak with law enforcement officials without your criminal defense lawyer present. Everything you say can and will be used against you.
  • DO NOT make it any easier for the government to convict you. While it may be tempting to explain what occurred, always remember that law enforcement’s main objective is making an arrest and putting someone behind bars.
  • If you are contacted by law enforcement, politely tell them that you wish to remain silent and demand to speak with your criminal defense lawyer. It’s that simple.
