Luca Cox completed two masters at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam: the master’s degree “Toga aan de Maas” and the master’s degree Criminal Law. As part of these masters, she gained experience within the legal profession. She obtained a bachelor's degree in European Law with a Dutch Minor at Maastricht University.

After graduating, mr. Cox worked as a legal assistant at a law firm in Amsterdam. In 2023, she started working as an attorney at Kolokatsi Advocaten.

Mr. Cox focuses her practice on (general) criminal law in the broadest sense of the word. Her background in European Law also enables her to act in criminal cases with a European law component, such as surrender and extradition cases. Mr. Cox views Dutch criminal cases with a European law perspective, as European criminal law sometimes offers more guarantees to suspects.

In addition, Mr. Cox deals with matters concerning the Certificate of Good Conduct and driving license cases, also regarding the CBR-route.

Mr Cox is determined, proactive and a go-getter. As a result, she will face every case head-on and gets everything out of it without losing sight of reality.
