 Summoned by the gendarmerie, can I be accompanied by a lawyer?

If it is written on the summons that you will be heard as a witness, it is useless to have a lawyer accompany you, he will not be able to attend the hearing. If you are called as a respondent for a free hearing, you may be accompanied by a lawyer if it is a crime or an offense punishable by imprisonment. This will be at your expense unless you benefit from legal aid. If you are summoned for police custody, you can be accompanied by a lawyer, where he can be called by the investigator (lawyer of your choice or lawyer appointed). More about lawyers: click here.
