Criminal Law

Jáuregui y Del Valle boasts an active and diverse Criminal Litigation Practice with a notable Corporate focus. We provide Criminal Litigation services mainly to the business sector, but we also advise individuals who require our services.

While our experience covers all aspects of Criminal Justice, the firm’s work often involves Insurance or Property Crime. We also regularly advise on criminal activity related to Intellectual Property and Copyright, and on offenses committed within the family environment. We know that being involved in Criminal Litigation puts all parties under extreme pressure, so whatever the subject, we always provide our clients with thoughtful and effective advice.

Our robust Criminal Litigation services span the whole lifecycle of a case. We advise clients during the preparation of complaints and during the investigation stage, and then represent and defend them during the criminal trial.

Additionally, we can offer stand-alone legal advice on matters related to crime and also offer mediation services.

Practice highlights

Jáuregui y Del Valle advised in Tlaxcala one of the largest Insurance Company in Mexico on a criminal matter related to the use of a false document. A beneficiary of life insurance filed a claim with the Insurance Company for the death of the insured. After reviewing the case, the Insurance Company decided to reject the claim because it was found that the insured falsified when filling out the application. Due to the above, the beneficiary sued the Insurance Company for more than USD $ 5,000,000. Within the claim documents used by the beneficiary there was an altered death certificate. Based on the above, a Criminal Complaint was filed where the commercial trial was requested alongside an arrest warrant that was issued and executed against the beneficiary for the crime of using a false document.

Jáuregui y Del Valle advised in Sinaloa an Auto Parts Company on a criminal matter related to the abuse of confidence. It was found that the company’s Accounts Manager made several transfers to his payroll account and to one of the company’s suppliers. After conducting an audit that confirmed the illegal provisions, a report of the facts was filed for the crime of breach of trust. After carrying out the investigation the judge waived the arrest warrant, which was executed by personnel of the Attorney General of the State of Tlaxcala. Once the trial was complete, the judge issued a condemnatory sentence.
