Police Interviews

Police Interviews

At Watson Woodhouse we have a team of specialist solicitors ready to represent you during a police interview. As the initial interview conducted is the most important stage of your case, it’s imperative to get in touch quickly. Our team is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can be sitting by your side within just 20 minutes. This service is always completely free of charge.

Our solicitors have police station accreditation and are able to provide assistance at any stage of the criminal process. This includes circumstances where arrest is likely. Whether under suspicion, investigation or arrest in relation to a criminal offence, we’re here to help.

Police Interview MythBusters

It’s no secret that most police officers prefer individuals in attendance for interviews to be unaccompanied. Without representation you’re vulnerable to certain lines of question and techniques that perhaps wouldn’t be used in front of a solicitor.

Some common myths used by police to deter you from receiving representation includes:

“If you want a solicitor this is going to take a lot longer, don’t you want to be out of here soon?”

NOT TRUE: Watson Woodhouse criminal defence specialists have solicitors in every one of our 6 offices. We’ll receive a call usually a few hours before police officers are ready for an interview. Upon receipt of a second call stating the police are ready to interview we are fully prepared and will be present within 20 minutes. You can call us in advance and we’ll be waiting when you arrive.

“Only guilty people need solicitors, I’ve got nothing to hide, I don’t need a solicitor”

NOT TRUE: The majority of people we represent are innocent, finding the idea of being summoned to the police station daunting. Interview processes can prove intimidating. Having a solicitor by your side helps greatly with the legal aspects whilst providing comfort and reassurance. Prior to the interview we receive full disclosure from officers. This gives us an idea of the evidence they have and a head start. Without a solicitor you would not have access to this.

“It’s 4oclock in the morning, I don’t want to be a pain and wake somebody up”

NOT TRUE: Watson Woodhouse has a 24hr helpline specifically for this reason. We attend stations at all hours of the night and day because it’s our job. We are passionate about the right to independent legal advice, no matter the time.
