First Need in the Police Station: You have been arrested and the Police intend to interview you
So you think you don’t need a Solicitor…..?
The best person to decide whether or not you need a solicitor is… a solicitor.
“I just want to get out of here quickly.”
Ross Solicitors are available right now.
We are able to give you advice on the telephone immediately and can be at the police station within 45 minutes or less - we may even be at the police station already. You
may be risking a lot more than 45 minutes by not asking for free legal advice.
“But I haven’t done anything wrong!”
Someone thinks you have or you wouldn’t be here. The law can be complex, and
even if you think you haven’t done anything wrong, you may have broken the law.
Ross Solicitors will be able to tell you exactly where you stand.
“I didn’t know I could have a solicitor.”
You can. It is your legal right to consult a solicitor at any time. Even if you don’t
want advice now, you can ask for a solicitor at any time.
“I can’t afford it.”
All legal costs at the police station will be covered by Legal Aid, no matter what the
crime, no matter how much you earn. You don’t have to pay a thing.
“I don’t know a solicitor.”
Ross Solicitors are available 24 hours a day/7days a week and are completely
independent of the police.
Just ask for Ross Solicitors, and we will be able to advise and represent you.
“But I want to admit the allegation.”
Again, the law can be complex, and you may have a good defence when you think
you’ve done something wrong. You may be eligible for a caution or warning, or you
may need a solicitor to help you get bail if you are charged with an offence. Ask
Ross Solicitors for advice.
“I’ll just go ‘no comment’ then.”
Did you know that if you don’t answer police questions, you could make it harder
to fight your case in Court? A reduced sentence for an early indication of guilt may
also be affected. It’s a difficult decision whether to answer questions or not, and
that’s why you need a solicitor.
What happens in the police station is likely to affect your
whole case – the sooner you ask for advice, the better!
It’s your right and it’s free – use it!
