Anyone detained at a police station has the right to consult with a solicitor. Anyone interviewed by the police has a right to have a solicitor present whether or not that person is under arrest or has attended voluntarily. It costs you nothing.
We have years of experience in dealing with police station interviews and always advise anybody in this situation to have a solicitor with them.
There are various reasons why you or someone you know may be interviewed by the police, these can include:
- Facing questioning over an offence, this can range from criminal damage right through to the most serious offences such as murder.
- Attending a police station voluntarily to help the police with their enquiries.
- Actually being arrested and facing interview.
