I. (Idriss) van Straalen LLM

Idriss van Straalen is an accomplished, analytically acute criminal defense lawyer who quickly grasps the heart of the cases put before him. He represents clients in big, complicated cases concerning violent crimes (murder, manslaughter, assault and robbery), narcotics, fraud, money laundering, seizure of criminal profit, sex offences, burglary, theft and embazzlement. He also represents clients at the Supreme Court of Cassation. He defends both businesses and private clients, amongst whom are lawyers, CEO’s, entrepeneurs and celebrities.

Idriss is known as a highly capable defence lawyer who represents the interests of his clients, if necessary, at the cutting edge. This not infrequently leads to an acquittal, dismissal of charges or another favourable outcome.
