As they say in the fable, the global statistics have not yet recorded any case of death of the lawyer from hunger, and criminal proceedings are to be conducted, and you will need a lawyer that you actively defended.

I left my job, country, family, nobody could help, except for some ADVOKATOV, my colleagues, friends, Why this happened?
