Attorney Tomimasu is qualified to practice in any jurisdiction in Japan, and he has served clients from all over the world in the past. Attorney Tomimasu belongs to one of the few law offices in Kansai area with the ability to provide “general practice” services in English without translation. In some cases, such language skills maybe essential because of the urgency.
One of the criminal cases Attorney Tomimasu have handled in the past required communication with his client’s parents in his home country through international phone-calls, working closely with an embassy coordinating the parent’s visit to make sure it fits prosecutor’s tight scheduling. These had to be done while negotiating with the victims for settlement and coordinating money transfer for the settlement and a fine for the summary judgment. Everything had to be put together within the 20 day maximum detention period, in order to prevent following indictment by the prosecutor.
For this reason, foreign clients living far from our office in Kyoto, such as one from New Zealand, California, Switzerland, have called our office internationally in seeking our legal services in English.
Attorney Tomimasu can help you decide whether the urgency of your case requires our English language services. Please feel free to contact us for an appointment for a legal consultation (houritsu-soudan 法律相談). A typical fee for a consultation session is 11,000yen per 1 hour.
