If you are arrested and detained in a police station, or you are asked to attend an interview under caution as a volunteer, you are entitled to consult a solicitor free of charge – and we highly recommend you do. Seeking legal advice can prevent you from incriminating yourself further. Having a solicitor next to you will also bring a sense of calm to an otherwise overwhelming situation.

The Importance of Legal Representation

Here at Satchell Moran Solicitors, we know that being accused of a crime, handcuffed and placed in a cell can be terrifying. The interview process is also extremely intimidating. Police powers are wide ranging and, without legal representation, you might not know what to do or how to behave. As experts in our field, we’ll advise you when to stay silent, when to answer police questions and when to submit a written statement rather than answer questions.

We can also advise you fully on:

  • Detention procedures
  • The strength of the police case against you
  • Whether to participate in an identification procedure
  • Whether to supply an intimate sample (such as urine or blood)

The above decisions can all determine the outcome of your case and, at Satchell Moran, our advice has ensured no further action is taken by the police. You have the right to remain silent until legal representation arrives, and we strongly urge clients to act upon this.

Are You A Friend or Relative?

If you are a friend or relative of someone detained at a police station, please call us as soon as possible and we will contact the police station to advise the detained person that you’ve contacted us regarding representation. They can then decide whether or not to instruct us or not. But getting in touch with us will ultimately bring you peace of mind.
