I’ve been interviewed by the police without a solicitor – next steps
You should always have representation
The starting point is that everyone should have a representative at the police station. It doesn’t matter whether this is a voluntary attendance or an arrest. Often, we are contacted by clients who have gone in alone and afterwards decide to seek representation.
The good news is, it isn’t too late. Even if you have been released without charge (RUI) charged or receive a postal requisition we can still provide you with advice.
Guide you through next steps
Unfortunately, we can’t change what happened in interview. What has been said, has been said and if charged the interview transcript will be evidence at court. We can however guide you through the next steps of the process and if there is a re-interview we can attend with you.
Advice at the police station investigation stage is free as long as you contact a solicitor who has a legal aid contract to provide advice. We have been providing free police station advice for over 30 years.
