Navigating the complexities of the Polish criminal justice system can be daunting, especially for non-native speakers of the language. It’s important to note that the majority of Polish police officers do not speak English fluently. Therefore, having a competent legal representative who can communicate effectively on your behalf is crucial.

At Maja Gidian Law Office we understand the challenges that foreign nationals face when dealing with criminal charges in Poland. Our team of experienced attorneys is proficient in both English and Polish, ensuring clear communication and comprehensive representation for our international clients.
