Getting the right legal advice at the earliest opportunity is essential to all criminal cases. It could significantly change the outcome of your case.
If you have been arrested
When you are arrested, you will be taken to the police station and held in a cell. You are entitled to contact a solicitor of your choosing. You do not have to use the duty solicitor. The police may try to question you first or say they want to have a chat. However, do not say anything until you have spoken to us.
You can call our solicitors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We’ll then attend the police station to represent you. This is completely free. Everyone is entitled to legal representation at a police station, so our fees are covered by legal aid.
Getting the right legal advice at the police station is crucial. What you say and do at the station can have a big impact on your case. Without a solicitor, you may accidentally incriminate yourself. Even if you are innocent and having nothing to hide, the police may use something you say against you. Also, your arrest and custody may not be legal.
Our police station solicitors can check whether the police are following the correct procedures. We’ll also provide expert advice while you remain at the police station. This includes during police interviews. Getting our help guarantees the best possible outcome for you. It also costs you nothing because our solicitors are free under legal aid.
If you have been arrested, or your family member has, call us now on 028 71 229 343.
If the police want to question you
Sometimes the police request that you come in for questioning. Or, you may attend the police station voluntarily to provide some information. Either way, contact our police station solicitors first. Under no circumstances should you go to a police station without a solicitor, even if you think no harm can be done.
We have dealt with cases in which people have attended a police station for a chat. They are then arrested, spend the night in a cell and find themselves in court the next morning with a duty solicitor they did not choose. Do not let this happen to you. Whatever the situation, always ask a solicitor to accompany you to the police station.
All communication you have with a police officer should take place through a solicitor or in the presence of a solicitor. Even things you say on the phone to a police officer can, in some cases, be used in court against you. Having a solicitor at the police station costs you nothing and goes a long way in protecting your position.
