    Guy and his colleagues are excellent attorneys. They always gave me good, practical and useful advice. As an attorney, I greatly appreciate and highly value their professionalism and responsiveness. I would not hesitate to use them again in the future and to recommend them to others in need of their counsel.

    I've worked with Guy Flatner's office during 2021 and 2022 in regards to my military status. I'm glad to say that from the first interactions with Guy and Emanuel they have shown the upmost professionalism - providing guidance and communication throughout the whole process and resulted in complete legal solution to the problem I was facing.

    Having spoken to several law offices in Israel, Guy Flatner's was the only one to actually consult on the initial state of the problem, while outlining possible solutions that could be done. Meanwhile, most others either didn't consider the initial situation or didn't bother to discuss anything before payments needed to be made.

    The process has taken a while and there were periods with little communication from the army side, but Emanuel showed patience and set up the necessary expectations in order to get the best result, even when I had doubts.

    Having worked with law offices all over the world I can confidently say that Guy Flatner's office is one of the most enjoyable to work with, especially considering the positive outcome they managed to create. Will gladly use their services again should the need arise.

    Guy was a wonderful Advocate for myself and my situation. Thank you so very much! Realistically, he's pricey, but worth it. If you need top notch representation in the criminal court who is fluent in English and Hebrew he's your guy 👦.

    Guy and Emanuel demonstrated the utmost professionalism, efficiency and dedication to me and my legal matter.

    While living abroad, I sought a local counsel that could assist me with resolving my military status. Naturally, not being in Israel I worried about whether I could trust a local counsel and whether my matter would receive proper attention and care. Both Guy and Emanuel put me at ease and were always very responsive. They went out of their way to answer every single question and concern that I had so that I could trust them 100%. Ultimately, they resolved my matter without any delays and actually even faster than I could have ever imagined with an outcome that was favorable to me.

    I can wholeheartedly recommend Guy and Emanuel to anyone seeking assistance with resolving their military status. After speaking with 4 different counsels, I can honestly say that Guy and Emanuel were by far the most knowledgeable and the result they achieved for me confirms this assertion.

Within the framework of our work “on the other side”, we have accumulated vast practical legal experience, interrogated suspects and defendants, prepared numerous legal opinions, closed criminal cases in pre-trial hearings, formulated and filed indictments and represented the State in complex Criminal and Military cases as well as arrest and bail proceedings – confronting some of the best advocates in Israel (from whom we also had the opportunity to learn about litigating a Criminal case in court).

We understand how a prosecutor reviews evidence, what considerations and internal guidelines guide him, under which bureaucratic constraints he operates and what will persuade him to go in a certain direction, which would be favorable for our client.

Being former prosecutors and investigators ourselves, we have an in-depth and longstanding know-how of the other side, we understand how investigation and prosecution authorities “think” and operate, we know how to detect flaws and vulnerabilities in their conduct and their legal game-plan, to anticipate their legal moves and respectively – to realistically reflect to our client his legal position while  building an optimum line of defense.

We are familiar with most of the “players” in the investigation, prosecution and judicial authorities, at all levels, and are recognized ourselves amongst decision makers.

On our web page “Criminal Lawyer – Types of Legal Services We Provide“, you can find accurate and detailed information pertaining exactly to the situation you are facing – with regard to the Criminal process

Through the stage of the pre-trial criminal hearing at the Israeli Prosecution (under Section 60A of the Criminal Procedure Law), in which a criminal lawyer on your behalf will attempt to persuade the prosecution authorities to refrain from filing a Criminal indictment against you

Through the stage of formulating an agreement with the prosecuting authority, that an indictment will not be filed and the criminal case be closed under conditional terms

Through situations in which, although the criminal investigation against you has ended, a criminal file remains open so legal action must be taken to close the criminal file, or a police record remains listed and legal action must be taken to expunge a police record or cancel a police record

Through the stage of the criminal trial itself, when a criminal indictment has already been filed with the court and now a criminal lawyer must formulate a viable line of defense and decide, together with you, on an appropriate legal course of action:

  • Cancellation of the criminal indictment;
  • Filing an application with the Attorney General for a stay in criminal proceedings;
  • Conducting a full-blown criminal trial, hearing the witnesses and the evidence, attempting to gain an acquittal in the criminal trial or, if acquittal is not a viable option, establishing a beneficial plea bargain with the prosecution authority.
  • Attempting to end the criminal legal proceedings with a non-conviction, despite a judiciary ruling that the accused indeed committed a criminal offense

Up to the stage when the criminal trial has ended with a criminal conviction, and now a criminal lawyer whose services you hired, must follow one of the following legal courses on your behalf:

  • Filing a criminal appeal.
  • Filing a clemency application for mitigation of punishment.
  • Filing an application for expungement of a criminal record

Alternatively, if the criminal investigation has concluded without an indictment being filed, and the criminal case has been closed, or the criminal proceeding in a court of law has ended in an acquittal – you may choose to hire the services of an Israeli Criminal Lawyer to perform legal actions to exonerate your name in public

On our web page “The various parties we represent in criminal proceedings“, we address each one of the different parties separately, due to the unique nature and different needs of each party to the proceedings:

  • Detainees, who we represent in arrest and bail proceedings.
  • Suspects, who we legally prepare for a criminal interrogation, and guide them with legal counseling during the investigation itself.
  • Accused persons, who we represent during the criminal trial stages and in the appellate courts.
  • Corporations & Corporate Officers, to whom our law firm provides counseling on criminal and disciplinary matters.
  • Complainants & Crime Victims who we provide legal advice on matters such whether to file a criminal complaint? Are they bound by law to make a complaint? With whom should they file their complaint? How to prove their allegations? What will the police do with their complaint? Furthermore, we make sure that that the complaint will not be disregarded by the investigative body and in appropriate cases, we file an appeal on the decision to close the case. Lastly, we guide crime victims with their dealings with the Israeli criminal justice system and provide them with legal advice during the criminal trial proceedings themselves.
  • In applicable cases, we file with the Israeli Criminal Court a private criminal action on behalf of victims of crime.
  • Minors, who we represent, either as suspects in a criminal investigation or as criminal defendants in Israeli Juvenile Courts. We regard the representation of minors and “young adults”, early in their lives, as a tangible service on our part, for the benefit of the public

Finally, on our web page “Criminal Lawyer – Offenses in which We Engage” we have addressed separately some of the criminal offenses in which we legally deal with
