Criminal cases; hearing and decision before the district court

The district courts are the first instance courts responsible for hearing and deciding certain criminal cases.



  • In criminal proceedings, the court fees are calculated according to the final sentence imposed. The fees of the lawyer for the criminal proceedings are determined only by the framework (so-called framework fee). The attorneys determine the fee in each individual case, taking into account all circumstances, in particular the scope and difficulty of the attorney's work, the importance of the matter, and the client's income and financial circumstances, at their reasonable discretion.


The legal remedy against a district court judgment is appeal or revision.
