Quality Legal Representation at the police station is paramount in any proceedings. Our Solicitors hold accreditations to represent clients at the Police Station or in any Interview under Caution no matter where it is held.
Our Solicitors have dealt with all offences from Thefts to Assault to Rape and Murder at the Police Station. In addition we have advised clients in Benefit Fraud Interview, Council Interviews and Interviews by Government Bodies. We offer quality advice in all circumstances. If you are a business please see our Business Defence section.
It is a misconception that people who are guilty are the only ones who need lawyers or if there isn’t a solicitor then the matter gets dealt with more speedily. This is simply not the case. Anybody being interviewed under caution can be in a vulnerable situation and requires the law explaining. A Solicitor will often speed up your time at the police station rather than slow it down.
The investigator conducting the interview is focused on what they need to prove the offence. They often are not concerned with your explanation and personal circumstances. A solicitor in interview makes it an even playing field and places you in the best possible legal stance before your interview.
If your matter proceeds to court your conduct and content of the interview can and may be used against you. Therefore without the advice of a solicitor you may innocently incriminate yourself, which could have damaging consequences before the Court.
If you require our advice please either contact us prior to your interview to make arrangements, alternatively notify the investigating officer promptly. If you have been arrested, please notify the custody sergeant upon your arrival at the police station and provide him our number 0116 247 0022 to call. This number is contactable 24 hours a day 365 days per year.
