Under Arrest

Under Arrest

If you have been arrested and taken to the police station for questioning, you are entitled to be represented by a solicitor. Regardless of the time of day or night, our lawyers can visit the police station and assist you while under investigation. We will be contacted as soon as you have been taken into custody and then when we get the call that the police are ready to interview you, we will aim to be at the police station within 20 minutes.

Our expertise enables us to provide you with advice and assistance before, during and after you have been questioned in relation to all types of criminal offences. We will seek to represent your best interests throughout your time while under arrest.

If you are under arrest, you will be suspected of committing a criminal offence. Anything that you say in a police interview can be used as evidence against you if you are later charged.

Our solicitors understand it can be a daunting time if you have been taken into custody. We will seek to provide you with advice that is specific to your case and advise you on how best to answer questions to provide you with the best defence. This can include answering ‘no comment’ to all questions, submitting a prepared statement or answering all of the questions.

Do not hesitate to contact us so that we can assist and represent you while you are under arrest.
