Police Station Advice

Police Station Advice - Hansell Drew Solicitors

Police Station Advice

Every person who the Police propose to interview under caution at the Police Station, whether under arrest or attending by appointment voluntarily, is entitled to free independent legal advice paid for by the Legal Aid Authority.


Why do you need a Solicitor?

The Police are proposing to interview you about a crime.  If you are prosecuted or convicted of that crime, or the Police impose an official caution (which although stops short of Court proceedings), this will create an official criminal record which can have serious impact upon future life prospects, such as employment and even foreign travel.


It is our advice that the whole process should be treated seriously and that you do yourself justice by securing the services of a solicitor at the earliest stage in the proceedings.
