What is the truth? The historical, absolute truth, the one that cannot be known but by those who personally live the facts, or the relative one, ascertained in respect of the rules of trial in court?
Article 25 of the Italian Constitution states that “No one may be denied access to the natural judge established by law”: only the law can set the rules for the assessment of the truth and only the judge can administer those rules.
The lawyer is the necessary interpreter of those who have lived the facts in the relationship with those who administer the rules. The criminal defense lawyer has the goal of bringing the historical truth in the trial, to have the judge properly appreciate and evaluate it, to ensure it is finally assessed.
And he must know how to approach, understand and support you in that destabilizing moment that is the involvement in a criminal trial, whether you are a victim, a civil plaintiff or the defendant.
