Police Station Matters

We represent clients at the police station either under arrest or those who attend voluntarily. On some occasions the police can interview you at home if you are unable to attend the police station. This is often referred to as a contemporaneous interview.

Anyone interviewed by an officer is entitled to free independent legal advice.
On some occasions Police Station matters can either conclude with the person being charged with an offence and being sent to court for the matter to be resolved, bailed for further enquiries, released under investigation, being made subject to a caution or community resolution or with the police taking no further action.

If you are interviewed and the police decide to take no further action, your case concludes at that point. If you are bailed to return to the police station, the police will make enquiries in the meantime and then make a decision hopefully before the date that you are due to return. That bail date can be extended for a certain period of time before the police make a decision as to how to proceed. The police, however, can release you under investigation, meaning that you do not necessarily attend the police station again for interview while they make further enquiries into your case. The police will continue to make enquiries and then you may receive a summons or a postal requisition in the post requiring you to attend Court on a later date. Your case, however, could still end with no further action being taken by the police if you are released under investigation or bailed for further enquiries to be made.

If you are invited in for an interview or have already been interviewed and you are unsure of the procedure, or wish for representation when your return on bail or attend the police station, please contact us so that we can advise you further on the process and to see if we can assist you.

We are available 24/7 every day of the year to attend police station interviews and to assist you. Our emergency number if you require assistance out of normal office hours is 01702 662957 .

Let’s talk!

I would like to thank you for the way in which you dealt with this matter all the way through. Particularly I would express my thanks for your prompt replies to all enquiries that I raised and for keeping me so well informed of the progress of the case.

Natasha Kelt, Litigation

I would like to thank you for a superb job well done. When you have never been in the position I found myself in, it was your calm and confident manner that reassured me you would do your very best. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who requires legal advice.

Jemmar Attfield, Commercial

We would like to thank you and your team so much for all the help and advice we received and for acting in a courteous and professional manner at all times. Thank you also Lee for patiently addressing all the issues we raised and for explaining everything to us so clearly, sometimes repeatedly, until you were satisfied we fully understood the more complex issues with our Wills; you personally, were highly recommended to us by one of your grateful clients. Likewise, we too would not hesitate to highly recommend you to anybody planning to make a Will.

Lee Hibell, Private Client
I cannot praise you and your team enough for the professional way you handled my situation, you have been so kind and reassuring in what has been a very emotional and distressing time.
Melanie Steeples, Family

I must say her handling of the transaction was first rate and very professional. Always available and she was never afraid to pick up the phone and share information when it was better to communicate that way rather than just email, a blessing in this day and age. Though both parties were keen for a quick exchange she never allowed that pressure to mean she cut any corners with her enquiries and was always working in my best interests.

I will be more than happy to work with her again in the future and will certainly recommend her to friends and associates who require similar services.

Amber Day, Property

Thank you for your prompt and concise response. That certainly makes things very clear and straight forward. Overall thank you for all your help and advice……. Should I need a solicitor in the future I will be sure to call your firm.
