What can we do to help?
The nature of our services rather depends on the individual circumstances of your case. If you are asked to attend a police station or other venue to be interviewed under caution, we will assist you in preparing for this. We will contact the police, obtain disclosure and advise you in advance of your attendance. One of our solicitors will attend the interview with you and ensure that your rights are properly protected throughout the interview. For further detail, please see our Guide to Police Investigations and Interviews.
Sometimes a decision to prosecute you can be avoided if the police or other prosecuting authority know more about you and the real circumstances behind what happened. Wherever possible, we will bring important factors about you and your case to the attention of those authorities by preparing detailed, quality correspondence.
If you are required to go to Court then we will fully familiarise you with the process in advance and provide you with experienced, quality representation. If your case proceeds to a trial, you will be allocated a senior and experienced lawyer to analyse the evidence and help you prepare your case, however large or small. We recognise the importance of preparation for every hearing and we have genuine expertise in the disclosure process. We care about the success of your case as much as you do.
