If you are charged your police station interview is very important
The police interview is a very important piece of evidence. The decision to either answer questions or to exercise your right to remain silent is very important. It can have an impact on the entire case and will certainly be mentioned in Court. It will help you if you have given thoughtful and considered responses to police questioning having had an opportunity to discuss the case with us first.
We can make representations to the police
We have dedicated and accredited representatives who will attend at the police station for you. They will be important in negotiations for many reasons. For example, it might be argued that there is insufficient evidence to charge you with an offence ensuring that the representative makes appropriate representations on your behalf. The police may want to keep you for court to seek a remand into custody. We can suggest bail conditions on your behalf at the police station.
Do not go into the interview wearing a blind fold
The police provide us with disclosure prior to your interview. This is very important because if you are to be interviewed on your own you will not receive such disclosure. We can advise you on the evidence and the right course of action for the interview. This is very important considering how important the case is and may make the difference between either being charged with an offence or leaving the police station without any charges. It is important to know your rights.
