An admin­is­trat­ive offence or mis­de­mean­our is an unlaw­ful and rep­re­hens­ible action that ful­fils the leg­al ele­ments of law allow­ing pun­ish­ment by a fine. The term mis­de­mean­our describes leg­al viol­a­tions without crimin­al­ity and that are there­fore not pun­ish­able under the pen­al code.

Of great prac­tic­al import­ance are first of all mis­de­mean­ours in road traffic, such as speed­ing, infringe­ment of the min­im­um sep­ar­a­tion dis­tance, incor­rect over­tak­ing, or driv­ing under the influ­ence of alco­hol, drugs or the like. Mis­de­mean­ours can also be com­mit­ted in a mul­ti­tude of oth­er leg­al fields, in which cor­res­pond­ing reg­u­la­tions exist.

We advise and rep­res­ent you in all mis­de­mean­our pro­ced­ures against the respons­ible author­it­ies, as well as in any poten­tial sub­sequent court proceedings.
