    Pro Bono

    The pro bono is a latin phrase which means voluntary, unpaid skilled labor or denoting work undertaken without charge.

    Our office proudly says that it undertakes law representation tasks for people in great need and non profit organisation. Such cases can be seen below.

    Animal Protection

    Animal protection law in Hungary is quite widespread. It is not only controlled by the Criminal Code 2012 C. Law and the civil code 2013 V. Law, but there is a separate law just for the protection of animals.

    Criminal code chapter XXIII. regulates crimes against the environment, nature , and animals.

    What to do when you are witnessing animal cruelty?

    Your first option is to call the police. To help police prosecute the criminal make sure to collect evidence to back the accusation. Make sure to only collect evidence if your own safety is not at risk. Evidence can be photograph, video or other people who will testify.

    Your second option is to contact us and we will assist in taking the case to court. Usually this option is taken only when police can no longer investigate the case due to the lack of evidence.

    Your third option is to contact the city administrator knowing that they are obliged to investigate any case which has been reported to their field.

    Whenever you come across animal cruelty do not hesitate to contact us and we will gladly assist you taking the necessary legal steps.

    Environment protection

    Our office’s goal is to comply and enforce the European and Hungarian environmentallaws and obligations. We always ensure that our customers understand the different regulations connected to environmental law regarding its methods, proceedings and law institutions. We provide assistance to several environmental protection public institutes in law and economy related fields. Our focus is on regulatory powers and administration of justice.
