Lawyer services in Helsinki, Finland

Salomäki Attorneys Ltd is a small law firm located in Helsinki, Finland. Our firm was founded in 2019 by mr. Jouni Salomäki (Attorney at law, Master of Laws) and we offer our services mainly to private persons and small firms.

We serve our clients for example in following legal areas:

Criminal defence

We serve our clients in all kinds of criminal defence issues. Whether you are called for interrogation or going to be prosecuted in court, it is important to contact a lawyer in order to estimate your case with a professional.

Immigration and residence permits

We help our clients in appealing to administrative court in case where the Finnish Immigration Service (Migri) has given a negative decision on your residence permit application or you are being deported from Finland.

Child protection

Many of our clients face trouble with the child protection authorities due to cultural differences or other misunderstandings. We help our clients for example in situations where the child is being urgently placed away from their parents or is given some other placement decision.

Family matters

Family issues we handle include for example divorces, inheritance, child visiting rights and child support. These issues always require sensitive approach and patience. Many times parties involved are acting irrationally and making hasty decisions and a lawyer can bring a more far reaching perspective to the whole situation.

People usually think that having a lawyer is expensive, but in Finland you are entitled to have a lawyer paid by the government if you cannot afford to have one. There are of course some restrictions and conditions to it, but in order to know whether you and your case meet these conditions, you should contact a lawyer, present your problem and ask if you are entitled to have a free legal aid. But first make sure your lawyer / law firm is a member of the Finnish Attorneys Association, because otherwise they might not meet the standards of a quality lawyer / law firm. Only members can use the title ”attorney at law” (or ”asianajaja” in Finnish).
