Criminal cases; information on hearings and decisions before the regional court (1st instance)

The criminal divisions of the regional courts are the first instance courts responsible for hearing and deciding certain serious criminal cases.



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


An appeal against a district court judgment is an appeal on points of law.
