A People’s Person

Adv. Tagar is renowned as a people’s person, who provides, beyond the professional-legal umbrella, also close and personal attention to its clients, with an attentive ear for normative people whose world collapsed overnight as they found themselves suspected or accused of crimes. This includes the representation of minors who are suspected of a variety of offences, such as violence, drugs, property and unlawful dissemination of private images, while accompanying both the minors and their concerned family members across the entire legal proceeding.

Pro Bono Representation of the Detainees of the Legal Protest

Since January 2023, Adv. Tagar has been serving, completely pro bono, as a member of the detainees’ support organization which represents all of those who were detained in the protest against the self-coup. To date, he has represented many dozens of detainees from the protest and in this framework provided them with devoted support, starting from the arrest or subpoena stage and up to the conclusion of the legal proceeding. As part of this activity, Adv. Tagar accompanies the detainees also in filing complaints in the Police Internal Affairs unit against violent policepersons.

Notable Achievements

Drug and paraphernalia possession not for personal use: non-conviction – defending two spouses against a charge of drug and cultivation paraphernalia possession not for personal use. The outcome: non-conviction and 140 community service hours.

Drug Cultivation: non-conviction – the firm represented a normative student who grew a cannabis plant in a pot in his own home. A charge was filed for cultivating a drug not for personal use. Adv. Tagar negotiated with the prosecution and led to the amendment of the charge to personal use possession. The outcome: non-conviction, 140 community service hours.

A minor who was investigated for suspected drug dealing: case closed with just a warning – the firm represented a minor who was interrogated in the police in the framework of a drug affair in his school. After reviewing the investigation materials in depth, Adv. Tagar applied to the prosecution with the claim that the youth never dealt drugs, nor did he mediate or supply them in any way. The prosecution was convinced by his thorough reasoning and the case was closed with just a warning.

A minor who was accused of theft in school: non-conviction – defending a minor, a new immigrant and the son of divorced parents, against a charge of theft and another charge of breaking and entering and malicious vandalism. Adv. Tagar remained continuously in touch with the youth and his family as well as the probation service, and at the end of the proceeding the probation service recommended not to convict the youth in order to avoid a criminal record that would harm his future. The court accepted that recommendation and sentenced him to only 90 hours of community service, without a conviction.

A man who was accused of indecent assault: case closed by the prosecution – representing a man who had an affair with a woman and after telling her that he is married and wishing to end their relationship she complained that he forced himself on her. Adv. Tagar found numerous contradictions in the accuser’s version, and in a meeting with the prosecution he managed to convince the latter that the accuser is not reliable and that charges should not be filed. As a result, the case was closed.
