NRI criminal lawyers have already dealt with almost all types of cases in criminal law including cases relating to violent crimes like murder, rape, CBI investigations, hurt and grevious hurt. We have also dealt with cases relating to white-collar crimes in which no violence is involved like cases of cheating, forgery, embezzlement of funds, immigration frauds. Apart from these, we have experts who deal with cases relating to dowry (section 498 – A), criminal misappropriation of property (section 406), offences under domestic violence act, cases of shared household. Apart from these our lawyers have also assisted clients from both complainant side (prosecution) and accused side (defence) in dealing with cases of defamation where the alleged offence has taken place within India.
