If you are unfortunate enough to be asked to attend the Police Station for a voluntary interview or under arrest on suspicion of a criminal offence you have the automatic right to free and independent legal advice from a Defence Lawyer. If you are to be questioned by another organisation such as the DWP in respect of criminal activity you may also be eligible for free legal advice depending on your financial circumstances.
Those suspected of being involved in a criminal offence would require representation at the beginning of the investigation by an independent, experienced and skilled lawyer.
Criminal prosecutions will usually begin at the Police Station, it is therefore of the utmost importance that the right decisions are made at the Police Station. Those decisions are made during the consultation and could have a decisive effect upon the outcome of the investigation.
It may be you are released without charge and that will conclude the matter. However, if you are charged with an offence and the matter proceeds to court, then what has been said during your interview may have a direct bearing on the strength of your defence at court.
