Anybody arrested and taken to a police station for questioning in relation to a sexual offence , or indeed anybody attending the police station as a volunteer for such a matter, has the right (subject to very limited exceptions) to speak with, and receive police station advice and assistance from a solicitor of their choosing throughout their stay at the police station.
If your are due to attend a police station for a ‘chat’ with a police officer or you know somebody who has been arrested and is being detained at a police station it is crucial that arrangements are made for expert police station advice by a specialist sexual offences solicitor without delay
The police station stage in criminal proceedings is probably the most important stage in the case and what you say, or do not say, during your police interview can have devastating consequences.
The role of a solicitor at the police station is to speak to the police on your behalf and obtain the fullest disclosure as to the evidence against you. The solicitor should then give you detailed advice as to the procedures at the police station and the law as it relates to your situation.
You have a right to silence at the police station and the solicitor should advice you whether it is in your best interests to answer police questions and the consequences should you choose not to.
Our expert sexual offence solicitors have years of experience in representing clients at the police station and standing up to police officers; however we are not prepared to compromise on quality by representing clients under the government’s legal aid scheme.
We are however generally able to offer an affordable fixed fee for representing you at the police station. This is a one off fee that will cover you for every time you are required to attend a police station in relation to a particular matter. This is backed up by our unique money back guarantee.
Unlike firms representing clients under the government’s legal aid scheme we guarantee to attend the police station with you each and every time you return to the police station and we will not leave you to your own devices if you are bailed to return to the police station by the police.
So if you are due to attend a police station in relation to any sexual offence matter or you know somebody who has been arrested please contact us immediately. It may be that you are unhappy with the lawyer who previously attended the police station with you.
Please feel free to contact us 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
You will always be advised by an expert sexual offence solicitor never a trainee, secretary or unqualified clerk.
