We provide specialist 24 hour Police Station representation FREE OF CHARGE to anyone arrested at any Police Station in England and Wales 365 days of the year. To be arrested or asked to attend a Police Station for interview is not only a stressful ordeal but is often the most important part of any criminal prosecution. What is said at that time to the police may be a key in terms of a “guilty” or “not guilty” verdict. It is often wrongly suggested that in asking for the services of a Solicitor at the Police Station it will extend the period of detention.

Our representative will always be with you within 45 minutes and usually considerably less. Furthermore, once a request for a Solicitor has been made we will ensure that the Police or investigative authority acts with all diligence in speeding up the investigation process. The fact is asking for a Solicitor at the Police Station could not only save you a criminal conviction at Court, but also shorten your period of detention at the Police Station.

This service is FREE OF CHARGE.
