Why might you have been asked to attend the Police Station?
You may have been asked to attend the Police Station for a voluntary interview, or because you are under arrest on suspicion of committing a crime. Whatever the circumstances, it is vital that you have legal representation from the start.
If you have been asked to attend the Police Station for a voluntary interview or if you are under arrest on suspicion of a criminal offence, you have the automatic right to free and independent legal advice from a Defence Solicitor.
Why is it important to have a solicitor present at the Police Station?
Criminal prosecutions will usually begin at the Police Station, it is therefore of the utmost importance that you have access to expert legal advice, as any decisions made during interviews could have a decisive effect upon the outcome of the investigation.
When you have the benefit of legal advice at your interview, the investigators will provide our representative with ‘disclosure’ outlining the reasons they wish to interview you. You will then have the opportunity to discuss this in private with your solicitor prior to the interview, it will allow you to understand how the investigators think you have committed a crime, and discuss any information or evidence that contradicts this.
At the police station you are entitled to free initial legal advice and representation under Legal Aid. Speak to us today to find out more.
We can also act on a private paying basis across the country.
