If you are at the Police Station or are asked to attend an interview at the police station, it is your legal right to have a defence solicitor represent you- free of charge. If detained by the Police you have the right to inform someone that you have been arrested and to access medical attention if it is needed.

If you are under 18 or a vulnerable adult then the police must contact a parent, guardian, or carer. You must have a responsible adult (who may be a friend, social worker, or family member over 18) with you. Once detained at the police station you are certain to be interview by the police. We strongly advise that you do not agree to an interview without having a lawyer present.

We are available to attend and advise you at any time of the day or night throughout the year, 365 days of the year. There is a very real chance of accidental self-incrimination, even when you are not guilty. There are circumstances where, to make our client less anxious, we can arrange the time of the appointment and meet with you in private, with the full information about what you are being accused of, before the interview and talk over your side of the story.

Our service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. You need only telephone our 24 hour telephone number to secure immediate representation.
